LEAVING PARADISE By Simone Elkeles (Unabridged Audiobook)

Narrated by Elizabeth Cottle and Nicholas Mondelli

Length: 7 hours and 11 minutes

Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong.

Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp.

Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad - her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares - has been canceled.

After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb's free... if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town.

Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers.

Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as "criminal" and "freak." Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes.

It's a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.
