Move over Percy Jackson. The Yogi´s Curse has arrived... Zoe and Zak are back in India. Again. And this time they´re attending Moonstock Himalayan Boarding School, which might seem fun except for the fact that the school itself is a little strange. Students ride elephants instead of school buses, snarling monkeys work as security guards, and angry parrots monitor the halls. And even when they manage to get used to the wildlife, the food is absolutely terrible. But living with a bunch of other kids their age can be a lot of fun too, or at least it seems that way until Zoe´s roommate goes missing. Following the directions written on a steamy bathroom mirror, Zoe and Zak fly through the clouds on their magic carpet to learn that the two of them have been chosen yet again. This time they´ve been asked to lift the Yogi´s Curse. It´s not going to be easy. Zoe and Zak don´t even know what the Yogi´s Curse is let alone how to lift it, but like it or not, they soon discover that a whole lot of people are depending on them. Now, if they´re going to save the day, Zoe and Zak are going to have to fool the monkey guards, avoid the nasty parrots, and maybe even develop a supernatural ability or two. Because lurking beneath Moonstock is a powerful new enemy. And if Zoe and Zak can´t stop him, nobody can. If you liked Ghost Leopard, you´ll love The Yogi´s Curse. Join Zoe and Zak on their new adventure today! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sonja Field. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/012896/bk_acx0_012896_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

This program is read by the author. The author, in his 20s, who is fluent in Chinese, examines the future of China through the lens of the Jiu Ling Hou - the generation born after 1990. A close-up look at the Chinese generation born after 1990, exploring through personal encounters how young Chinese feel about everything from money and sex to their government, the West, and China’s shifting role in the world - not to mention their love affair with food, karaoke, and travel. Set primarily in the Eastern 2nd tier city of Suzhou and the budding Western metropolis of Chengdu, the book charts the touchstone issues this young generation faces. From single-child pressure to test-taking madness and the frenzy to buy an apartment as a prerequisite to marriage, from one-night stands to an evolving understanding of family, Young China offers a fascinating portrait of the generation who will define what it means to be Chinese in the modern era. Zak Dychtwald was 20 when he first landed in China. He spent years deeply immersed in the culture, learning the language and hanging out with his peers in apartment shares and hostels, on long train rides, and over endless restaurant meals. 1.
