The Gathering: Shadow House Book 1
by Dan Poblocki
Read by Dan Bittner
Published by Scholastic Audiobooks
Summary: “Poppy Caldwell is an orphan who keeps seeing a figure standing behind her in the mirror at the group home where she lives, but she does not associate this ghost with the letter that mysteriously appears in her file, claiming to be from a long-lost aunt, and inviting her to Larkspur House–and she is just one of five children who find themselves gathered in this strange house with a deadly past, and apparently no intention of letting the children escape.”
In Our Backyard: Human Trafficking in America and What We Can Do to Stop It
by Nita Belles
Read by Nicol Zanzarella
Published by Oasis Audio
Summary: “Modern slavery is happening all around you . . . and you can be part of the solution. Human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. Nor is it something that just happens to ‘other people,’ such as runaways or the disenfranchised. Even kids in your own neighborhood can fall victim. But they don’t have to. Through true stories and expertise from her many years of boots-on-the-ground experience, anti-trafficking expert Nita Belles teaches you everything you need to know about human trafficking in the United States, helping you identify risk factors, take practical steps to keep your loved ones and neighbors safe from predators, and recognize trafficking around you, so that you can help fight it.”
