The Book of Broken Hearts

Sarah Ockler, read by Zilah Mendoza. Listening Library, unabridged, eight CDs, 10 hrs., $55 ISBN 978-0-8041-2351-8
Young Jude is the last of her sisters still living at home. She spends the summer helping her father fix up his vintage motorcycle and even enlists the services of a handsome young mechanic. However, she quickly realizes that the mechanic—with whom she becomes infatuated—is a Vargas brother: someone she promised her sisters she would never date. Smoothly narrated by the youthful-sounding Zilah Mendoza, the novel’s inherent charm shines through. Mendoza’s rendition of Jude is similar to her narration, but her ability to breathe life into the character in a simple yet realistic manner truly makes this audio edition great. Mendoza’s voice is naturally likeable and friendly, just like Jude. Ages 14–up. A Simon Pulse hardcover. (May)
