The Hive

Author: Barry Lyga, Morgan Baden Narrator: Devon Sorvari Release Date: May 2020

Based on a concept by Jennifer Beals and Tom Jacobson Cassie McKinney has always believed in the Hive. Social media used to be out of control, after all. People were torn apart by trolls and doxxers. Even hackers-like Cassie's dad-were powerless against it. But then the Hive came. A better way to sanction people for what they do online. Cause trouble, get too many 'condemns,' and a crowd can come after you, teach you a lesson in real life. It's safer, fairer, and perfectly legal. Entering her senior year of high school, filled with grief over an unexpected loss, Cassie is primed to lash out. Egged on by new friends, she makes an edgy joke online. Cassie doubts anyone will notice. But the Hive notices everything. And as her viral comment whips an entire country into a frenzy, the Hive demands retribution. One moment Cassie is anonymous; the next, she's infamous. And running for her life. With nowhere to turn, she must learn to rely on herself-and a group of Hive outcasts who may not be reliable-as she slowly uncovers the truth about the machine behind the Hive.

I Hunt Killers Audiobook

I Hunt Killers

Author: Barry Lyga Narrator: Charlie Thurston Release Date: April 2012

Jazz is a likable teenager. A charmer. But he's also the son of a (now incarcerated) infamous serial killer, and "Dear Old Dad" (as Jazz calls him) has taught Jazz everything he knows. But what Jazz doesn't know is whether or not he is destined to follow in his father's footsteps. He knows he has urges, but he also knows (hopes) that he has a conscience, that he isn't like his father, that he can follow his own path. And so, in an effort to right his father's wrongs, Jazz decides to help the police (although they don't know it yet) hunt down "The Impressionist"--a new serial killer in town. As The Impressionist kills more victims, Jazz uses the "skills" he's learned to determine the killer is copying his father's career--almost to the letter. Everyone in town thinks that Jazz could be the murderer, and why shouldn't they? The only people that stand by him are his hemophiliac best friend, Howie, and his tough, beautiful girlfriend, Connie--one of the few girls Jazz feels comfortable around given his father's history: his dad may have murdered dozens of women, but they were all white, and Connie is black. As the bodies pile up, Jazz struggles with determining his "true" destiny. Ultimately, he manages to stop The Impressionist, but in the meantime learns his father has escaped from his maximum security prison, and Jazz may have played a role in his escape... For now he's safe, but he knows his dad is out there, somewhere, looking for his next victim...

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl Audiobook

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl

Author: Barry Lyga Narrator: Scott Brick Release Date: March 2007

Fanboy has never had it good, but lately his sophomore year is turning out to be its own special hell. The bullies have made him their favorite target, his best (and only) friend seems headed for the dark side (sports and popularity), and his pregnant mother and the step-fascist are eagerly awaiting the birth of the alien life form known as Fanboy’s new little brother or sister. Fanboy, though, has a secret: a graphic novel he’s been working on without telling anyone, a graphic novel that he is convinced will lead to publication, fame, and–most important of all–a way out of the crappy little town he lives in and away from all the people who make it hell for him. When Fanboy meets Kyra, a.k.a. Goth Girl, he finds an outrageous, cynical girl who shares his love of comics as well as his hatred for jocks and bullies. But Kyra has secrets, too. And they could lead Fanboy to his dreams . . . or down a path into his own darkness.
