The only thing better than more adventures with Carley and Troop is sharing the fun with a German Shepherd named King - the best dog in the whole wide world, according to Carley. Hometown shenanigans abound along with a surprise or two with Luke Webster, and with Carley at his side, King shows his true colors as a hero while Shiner roams free in his new life in the wild woods along Blue River. Could a boy´s life get any better? Of course, Mick Fuller and his dog, Devil, and Toby Swanson are back, meaner than ever, and Miss Botch´s swats still hurt. Carley still seems to spend a bit more time in trouble than he´d like, but he wouldn´t trade his life in Belford for anything in the world! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ellery Truesdell.

In the near future, a few young women manifest extraordinary abilities called ´´Shine´´. Each girl´s ability is different. Some develop unusual mental abilities. Some become physically powerful. Others have talents that defy description. But the world does not embrace these Shines. It fears them. Aura tried to use her healing powers to help a small child. But when she Shined, something went horribly wrong - and Seattle was destroyed. In the aftermath of this disaster, the government institutionalizes Shines in ´´rehabilitative treatment centers´´. Aura is sent to the Transforming Your Light island rehab - but to her it seems more like a prison. The other Shines hate her. The people running the place are out to get her. And she feels certain more is going on here than ´´group grope´´ and 12-step sessions. But when she tumbles onto the horrible secret lurking beneath the rehab - she realizes just how great the danger to her and the other Shines really is. Aura resolves to escape before it´s too late. But she can only do that if she organizes the Shines, persuades them to work together, and overcomes the deadly opposition she only barely understands. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lara Wells.

In the near future, a few young women manifest extraordinary abilities called ´´Shine.´´ Each girl´s ability is different. Some develop extraordinary mental abilities. Some become physically strong. Others have powers that defy description. But the world does not embrace these Shines. It fears them--especially after the destruction of Seattle is blamed on one Shine named Aura. After being locked up in the Transforming Your Light ´´rehab´´ on Antolina Island, Aura tried to adjust to life with six other Shines and the domineering Dr. Coutant. But a chance encounter with the Shine known as Perfume - soon found dead in the epicenter of a huge explosion in Santa Monica - told her more was happening at TYL than group therapy. Her investigations led her to a underground cellblock where she realized the hideous truth about TYL was far more horrific than she imagined - just before she was captured by Coutant and her goons. Now she must somehow survive a brutal interrogation and find some way to escape. But how can she escape from an isolated island in the Pacific? And how can she organize the other Shines - who she´s certain hate her--and get them to work together for their mutual benefit before the government, the Shine Surveillance System, or the mysterious forces at TYL destroy them all? 1.
