Are you looking for great audiobooks for kids ages 12 and up, maybe to occupy your child during school vacation or summer break? Perhaps you even enjoy paranormal young adult novels yourself. Dark Before Dawn is a brand new audiobook for Amazon, Audible and iTunes, and I really think that listeners will enjoy it.
Dawn Christian has been psychic since she was seven years old and has always considered herself an outcast. Even her own mother discourages her talent, so Dawn has kept her abilities quiet and feared a lifetime of loneliness. When she gets involved with a fortuneteller and two teenage girls who share her mysterious perception, Dawn finally belongs to a group. As her intuition strengthens, so does Dawn’s self esteem. However, when she learns her new friends may be tied to two bizarre murders, she has an important choice to make – continue developing the talent that makes her special, or challenge the only people who have ever accepted her.
Cassandra Morris did a wonderful job on the narration. Cassandra has narrated over 80 audiobooks and received multiple awards from Audiofile Magazine and Publisher’s Weekly. Recent awards include two 2011 Earphones Awards from Audiofile Magazine and a 2010 Audie Award Nomination for Outstanding Fiction Narration. Among her credits, Cassandra has narrated books in the Gossip Girl series, Pretty Little Liars series, Disney Fairies series (as Tinkerbell), The Magic School Bus series, Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew series, The Clique series, and Ivy and Bean series, and has narrated biographies for Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.

“A spooky and fast moving plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the shocking end…Stacy Juba is a quite a versatile writer and each of her books carry a unique plot that will capture you from the first page and hold you until the final sentence.
