SYNC 2021 Launches!

Our twelfth season of free audiobooks for teens officially arrives, so dial up your Sora app and download (“borrow,” in the app’s parlance) your first pair of titles! This week’s listens come to us courtesy of Recorded Books, bringing us COME ON IN, and Scholastic, with ILLEGAL. Connected by the theme of what can and does occur after crossing the U.S. border as an immigrant, both of these audiobooks are also #ownvoices realistic fiction performed by multiple narrators.
