Destiny Davis never imagined being an investigative reporter, but her sixth sense for drama and backstabbing caught Mr. Holt´s attention, a wealthy alum from her high school. Now she´s an intern at Chatter, his new blog syndicate, and she´s knee-deep in sleazy politics. Can she rise above and seize her opportunity? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Intuitive.

Outside, Anika Dragomir is all lip gloss and blonde hair - the third most popular girl in school. Inside, she´s a freak. A mix of dark thoughts, diabolical plots, and, if local chatter is to be believed, vampire DNA. After all, her father is from Romania. Everyone else in Nebraska is about as American as an apple pie - wrapped in a flag - on the Fourth of July. Spider stew. That´s what Anika is made of. But she keeps it under wraps to maintain her social position. One step out of line and Becky Vilhauser, first most popular girl in school, will make her life a living hell. So when former loner Logan McDonough shows up one September hotter, smarter, and more mysterious than ever, Anika knows she can´t get involved. It would be insane to throw away her social safety for a nerd. So what if that nerd is now a black-leather-jacket-wearing dreamboat, and his loner status is clearly the result of his troubled home life? Who cares if the right girl could help him with all that, maybe even save him from it? Logan. Who needs him when Jared Kline, the bad boy every girl dreams of, is asking her on dates? Who? Andrea Portes´s emotionally devastating debut YA audiobook lays bare the futility in pretending to be something we´re not and the value in finally celebrating all that we are - inside. 1.

We rely on automation. Our cars parallel park themselves. The military uses unmanned aerial vehicles for surveillance. We can´t go anywhere without our phones. Our lives are ripe for hacking. Not that anyone would. When a group of high school friends meet at their 45th reunion, they discuss the hypothetical. With all these wireless networks, could someone hack a military drone? Unknown to them, a Russian spy gets wind of their idle chatter and plans to put their idea to the test. Vasili Grigoriy Konstantinov commandeers a drone flying over Washington DC and terrorizes the National Mall with a low flyby. Then, things escalate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Samuel E. Hoke.

From New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown comes a funny heartache of a novel about overcoming the past, confronting the future, and defying all expectations. Everyone is talking about Jennie Sue Baker and the mess she made of her life in New York. The former high school queen bee - and wealthy darling of Bloom, Texas - has returned home after all these years, riding on a common bus and bearing two bounced alimony checks. In a town that thrives on gossip, Jennie’s fall from grace has shamed her mother, set the town buzzing, and caused old, jealous enemies to whisper in delight. They say she’s taken a job as a housekeeper, gotten a garage apartment, and might be crushing on Rick Lawson, a simple farmer with modest dreams. As romance starts to bud, Jennie relishes what it means to follow her heart, find real new friends, and finally be herself - regardless of all the lying town chatter. But fate has another twist in store. Rumor has it that Jennie now stands to lose what matters most…unless she can convince Rick of one true thing - and that’s love. 1. Language: English.

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Middle Place comes a new memoir that examines the bond - sometimes nourishing, sometimes exasperating, occasionally divine - between mothers and daughters. When Kelly Corrigan was in high school, her mother neatly summarized the family dynamic as ´´Your father’s the glitter but I’m the glue.´´ This meant nothing to Kelly, who left childhood sure that her mom - with her inviolable commandments and proud stoicism - would be nothing more than background chatter for the rest of Kelly’s life, which she was carefully orienting toward adventure. After college, armed with a backpack, her personal mission statement, and a wad of traveler’s checks, she took off for Australia to see things and do things and Become Interesting. But it didn’t turn out the way she pictured it. In a matter of months, her savings shot, she had a choice: get a job or go home. That’s how Kelly met John Tanner, a newly widowed father of two looking for a live-in nanny. They chatted for an hour, discussed timing and pay, and a week later, Kelly moved in. And there, in that house in a suburb north of Sydney, 10,000 miles from the house where she was raised, her mother’s voice was suddenly everywhere, nudging and advising, cautioning and directing, escorting her through a terrain as foreign as any she had ever trekked. Every day she spent with the Tanner kids was a day spent reconsidering her relationship with her mother, turning it over in her hands like a shell, straining to hear whatever messages might be trapped in its spiral. This is a book about the difference between travel and life experience, stepping out and stepping up, fathers and mothers. But mostly it’s about who you admire and why, and how that changes over time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kelly Corrigan.

As a crucial component of our nation´s critical infrastructure, the health sector is an obvious and wide open target for bad actors. Hackers, both state sponsored and mercenary, have been effortlessly pummeling our health sector networks while organizations do little to stop them. A firewall and anti-virus software will do little to stop intruders yet little, if anything, is being done to create standards to thwart a breach. Cybersecurity-centric components must be included in the curriculum of anyone studying health IT, HIPAA and healthcare informatics as these are the first victims that will be under cyber-attack in any organization in which they are employed. Xerox State healthcare, Anthem, AvMed, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, the Nemours Foundation and others experienced breaches that have affected millions of innocent victims but little is being done to solve the issue of educating gatekeepers of the information. Sloppy cybersecurity hygiene stems from minimal standards for information security in the workplace. The kneejerk reaction to a breach is typically restricted to chaotic chatter while actual strategies to thwart future attack are hardly mentioned therefor the attack surface continues to go unprotected as the IoT (Internet of Things) continues to evolve. Sophisticated and determined bad actors such as PLA Unit 61398, Topsec, Blackvine and Hidden Lynx are only a few of the multitude of Chinese initiatives to infiltrate, exfiltrate and corrupt the networks of America´s healthcare sector. The shocking truth is that we are virtually voluntary victims as there is no cybersecurity hygiene and zero cybersecurity-centric culture being taught in hospitals, insurance companies, nursing schools or text books. Cybersecurity basics should be taught in every nursing school and healthcare informatics class yet this topic remains eerily absent from current curriculum. 1. Language: English.
