Over the summer, SYNC provides access to free audiobooks, pairing a recent young adult novel with a classic title that ties into it.  The offerings change each week and are only available for download until the next offering is announced a week later.  I've included a list below of all of the scheduled downloads for this summer, and I'll try to post a reminder each week of the next week's upcoming titles.  SYNC will have all the details on how to download, so be sure to check back over there at the end of May!
