Warning: listening to this audio while driving is hazardous. I finished this audio this morning while doing errands with my husband. I found that sitting too long at a stop sign can make other drivers angry and driving with blurred vision is a driving hazard, no matter how many times I wiped at my e...

This was amazing! I loved monster and I loved Conor for not showing his fear of monster. Conor has enough fear in his life without monster adding to it. With his mother sick and his father in America, Conor believes that everything will be okay. His mother had assured Conor that everything will be f...
