ARE YOU LISTENING? I WAS HERE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S" 
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY"  
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S  
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....
*******************************************
GIVEAWAY ENDED
I WAS HERE
Read by Jorjeana Marie
BY GAYLE FORMAN
  
ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, and some secrets of his own. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Gayle Forman is an award-winning, internationally bestselling author and journalist. She is the author of Just One Day and Just One Year, and the companion e-novella Just One Night, as well as the New York Times bestsellers If I Stay and Where She Went. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and daughters.

ABOUT THE NARRATOR:
Jorjeana Marie has narrated numerous audiobooks, starred in the TV movie Listen to Grandpa, Andy Ling, and performed as a stand-up comic, opening for Richard Lewis, Louis Anderson, and Kathleen Madigan. Her voice can be heard in such video games as Final Fantasy, Crackdown 2, and Star Guardians.

SOME OTHER BOOKS BY GAYLE FORMAN:
                    
              

PRAISE FOR I WAS HERE:
“I Was Here is a pitch-perfect blend of mystery, tragedy, and romance. Gayle Forman has given us an unflinchingly honest portrait of the bravery it takes to live after devastating loss.” —Stephen Chbosky, author of the New York Times bestselling The Perks of Being a Wallflower

“As she did in If I Stay, Forman offers an introspective examination of the line between life and death, and the courage it takes to persist.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Part tautly paced mystery, part psychological study of suicide and its aftereffects. . . An engrossing and provocative look at the devastating finality of suicide, survivor’s guilt, the complicated nature of responsibility and even the role of the Internet in life-and-death decisions.” —Kirkus

Suicide is so tough and, when you think you know all about someone and find out they have been keeping so many secrets from you and everyone else, it must be so difficult. This sounds really good.
