What SYNC Participants Said about the 2020 Program

„Helping me through a rough time—being read to is the highest form of comfort“

„I never thought that I would come to enjoy reading from an audiobook. It’s so cool because I can do other stuff like folding clothes while listening to a book. Thanks, SYNC, for the experience.“

„My favorite part about SYNC is getting and listening to books I wouldn’t have ever chosen for myself. It expands my world view and my reading view, which is excellent.“

“A fever nightmare of epically queer proportions.”

—Mark Oshiro, author of Anger Is a Gift

Reverie

Inception meets The Magicians in this wildly imaginative story about what happens when the secret worlds people hide within themselves come to light.

All Kane Montgomery knows for certain is that the police found him half-dead in the river. He can’t remember anything since an accident robbed him of his memories a few weeks ago. And the world feels different—reality itself seems different.

So when three of his classmates claim to be his friends and the only people who can tell him what’s truly going on, he doesn’t know what to believe or who he can trust. But as he and the others are dragged into unimaginable worlds that materialize out of nowhere—the gym warps into a subterranean temple, a historical home nearby blooms into a Victorian romance rife with scandal and sorcery—Kane realizes that nothing in his life is an accident, and only he can stop their world from unraveling.

The Corona Peek

eBooks are more and more important for schools – especially in times of distance learning and hygiene concerns. But that doesn’t mean that printed books are out of bounds!

School libraries do their best to serve student’s needs – digital and analogue -, even when school (or library) is closed. Have a look at our reading statistics! Since September they are back in school. Now they can browse the “real” shelves in their School Libraries again.
