I finally got an audio jack that works off of the 12volt system in my car so I can start listening to books from my mP3 player commuting.

I'm listening to Little Bee by Chris Cleave. Anne Flosnick reads it, she is a fantastic reader, amazing accents for the characters.

Little Bee is a teen Nigerian refugee, the story starts with her being released from a refugee internment facility outside of London. (after being interred for 2 years) Among her possessions a battered business card and a British driver's license that isn't her own. The story unfolds through Little Bee relating snippets of her past to the present. The driver's license and business card belong to a man who was vacationing in Africa. While fleeing for their lives, Little Bee and her sister have an encounter on the beach with the Englishman and his wife.
