In Year 9 English classes do Literature Circles with the following titles — and some students have asked about ebook and audio book versions.

Due to digital rights management, the library has limited options when it comes to providing ebooks and audiobooks for loan.  But if you are interested, there are ebook with accompanying audio versions by Audible available via Amazon — a feature they call “Whispersync”  — which you can purchase for your personal devices.

Links are provided below for all titles, except “Reclaimed” by Sarah Guillory.  For that book there is no digital version available anywhere.
