A MUST LISTEN for parents of teens!

Where does Ep. 1: Band of Brothers (What Were You Thinking?) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Who thought it could be possible to feel compassion and empathy for an accused terrorist?!? Dina Temple-Raston delves into the adolescent brain to see what's going on there from ages 13-24, and why they sometimes make very poor choices. Fascinating stuff!

Who was your favorite character and why?

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

Dina Temple-Raston makes this challenging subject easy to absorb.

Spot on

What made the experience of listening to Ep. 1: Band of Brothers (What Were You Thinking?) the most enjoyable?

As a high school teacher, I'm very aware of my teens' need for belonging, their need for purpose and identity. As an English teacher I want to use literature to help teens explore the big issues and the life defining moments. I'm not at all interested in standardized test taking.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ep. 1: Band of Brothers (What Were You Thinking?)?

Having teens think about the trajectory of their lives and defining for themselves which way they want to go is crucial. Teaching them how to discern fact from propaganda is a skill that will allow them to make those decisions.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had a sense of relief that it was possible to change one young man's fate, and perhaps he will change the fates of many others through his story.
