Discover what happens when outside forces interrupt your life in Week 4 of Sync's Summer of Audiobooks


Be sure to sign up at audiosync.com to download this week's titles. You'll also need to download the Sora app on your phone or tablet. Follow the instructions. It's super easy. It took me less than 5 minutes to do it. If you've already downloaded the app, then the titles should be available in the app. And for my international friends, ALL SYNC titles are available worldwide. And remember, you only have one week to download the titles, after that you'll have to purchase them.

You've never listened to a Francisco X. Stork novel like this before! A missing girl, a determined reporter, and a young man on the brink combine for a powerful story of choices, suspense, and survival.

Four months ago...

Sara Zapata's best friend disappeared, kidnapped by the web of criminals who terrorize Juarez.

Four hours ago...

Sara received a death threat - and, with it, a clue to the place where her friend is locked away.

Four weeks ago...

Emiliano Zapata fell in love with Perla Rubi, who will never be his so long as he's poor.

Four minutes ago...

Emiliano got the chance to make more money than he ever dreamed - just by joining the web.

In the next four days, Sara and Emiliano will each face impossible choices, between life and justice, friends and family, truth and love. But when the web closes in on Sara, only one path remains for the siblings: the way across the desert to the United States.
