The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams--Audiobook Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Carol Lynch Williams' young adult novel The Chosen One. Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated polygamous community without questioning her father's three wives and her twenty brothers and sisters. Or at least without questioning them much—if you don't count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her.
