ARE YOU LISTENING?: THE FOX INHERITANCE - AN AUDIO BOOK REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S" 
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY" 
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE FOX INHERITANCE
The Jenna Fox Chronicles (Volume 2)
BY MARY E. PEARSON
ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and then centuries.

Two-hundred-and-sixty years later, they have been released at last. Given new, perfect bodies, Locke and Kara awaken to a world they know nothing about, where everyone they once knew and loved is long dead.

Everyone except Jenna Fox.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Mary E. Pearson is the author of bestselling, award-winning novels for teens. The Miles Between was named a Kirkus Best Book of the Year, and The Adoration of Jenna Fox was listed as a Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the Year, an IRA Young Adult Choice, NYPL Stuff for the Teen Age, and a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. She is also the author of A Room on Lorelei Street, David v. God, and Scribbler of Dreams. Pearson studied art at Long Beach State University, and worked as an artist before earning her teaching credential at San Diego State University. She writes full-time from her home in Carlsbad, California, where she lives with her husband and two dogs. 
PRAISE FOR THE FOX INHERITANCE:
“Matthew Brown narrates with a smooth, mellow voice that is very appropriate for this YA sci-fi novel. His rendition of the distressed Locke is spot on, and he provides equally appropriate voices for the book’s various characters: adults, kids, males, female, and even robots. Brown’s reading also captures the thoughtful reflection of the author’s prose, while still creating excitement and tension when the story hits suspenseful passages.” Publishers Weekly

“Narrator Matthew Brown captures Locke perfectly, portraying his early, childlike mentality, his bewilderment over a familiar and unfamiliar world, and his ultimate disillusionment, pain and personal loss.” Ruby’s Reads

“This is a mesmerizing story that will be greeted enthusiastically by Jenna Fox fans.” --VOYA
"The ethical debates around whether science should be limited by conscience and not just ability are well integrated into a story that is equally strong as an exploration of home, identity, and the meaning of survival." --BCCB

“A gripping story that begs the question: Do you really know what lies at the genesis of your friend's biology, psyche or even their heart?” Shelf Awareness

 “…the story is gripping, urgent, and highly appealing…” --School Library Journal 

"...it is through his [Locke’s] viewpoint that we experience the confusing futuristic world, the thrilling suspense of the chase, the charged emotional reunion of the friends, and the admirably complex playing out of the issues of trust, ethics, and betrayal.” --Horn Book Magazine
“A dazzling blend of science fiction, mystery, and teen friendship drama…” --Publishers Weekly, starred review
"...the book's timely and haunting questions will leave thoughtful readers with much to ponder." --Kirkus Reviews
“In this futuristic follow-up, Pearson pries open the most haunting element of Jenna Fox's world:  disembodied minds trapped in computers. Questions of human identity and nightmarish medical technology drive this riveting, thought-provoking sequel.” —Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games
ABOUT THE JENNA FOX CHRONICLES:
Want to catch up on THE JENNA FOX CHRONICLES? Did you miss book one, THE ADORATION OF JENNA FOX? Although you can read this second book without having read the first, here is some background anyway.
Who is Jenna Fox? Seventeen-year-old Jenna has been told that is her name. She has just awoken from a coma, they tell her, and she is still recovering from a terrible accident in which she was involved a year ago. But what happened before that? Jenna doesn't remember her life. Or does she? And are the memories really hers?

This fascinating novel represents a stunning new direction for acclaimed author Mary Pearson. Set in a near future America, it takes readers on an unforgettable journey through questions of bio-medical ethics and the nature of humanity. Mary Pearson's vividly drawn characters and masterful writing soar to a new level of sophistication.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

I think the concept of waking up into a time when you know nothing about the time, is fascinating.

I found Mary interesting because she said as a kid she would wake up and pretend she was someone else - and live for the day as person.
