After falling off the wagon and becoming what he so clearly and strongly resisted, a consumer, Josh Swenson (aka: Larry) finds himself in a hyper-paranoid state of no return. That is, until he is kidnapped and coaxed back into resurfacing as his old persona. Before long, Larry is back on the scene with much more on his mind that a gospel Web site; this time Larry wants to effect change in government. What starts out as a small campaign to get the younger population to vote turns into a run for the presidency. Can Larry really take on George Bush? In this very smart, very witty novel, Janet Tashjian brings the political world to the forefront and exposes it from many different points of view. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jesse Eisenberg.

Josh Swensen is not your average 17-year-old. At the age of two, he was figuring out algebraic equations with colored magnetic numbers. He is a prodigy who only wants to make the world a better place. Josh´s wish comes true when his virtual alter ego, Larry, becomes a huge media sensation. Larry has his own Web site where he posts sermons on anti-consumerism and has a large following of adults and teens. Meanwhile, Larry´s identity is a mystery to everyone. While it seems as if the whole world is trying to figure out Larry´s true identity, Josh feels trapped inside his own creation. What will happen to the world, and to Larry, if he is exposed? 1.

The 2009 Disney/Pixar movie Up is an animated film and, therefore, was able to take liberties with the truth pretty easily. That´s good, because the film´s premise centers on the travels of Carl Fredricksen, a 78-year-old widower who ties tens of thousands of helium balloons to his house and, as the title suggests, goes up into the sky. The flight of Mr. Fredricksen is as fictional as it gets. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Giovannie Cruz. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/aq/a045/000053/aq_a045_000053_sample.mp3.
