Moonheart (unabridged audiobook), by Charles de Lint, read by Paul Michael Garcia. I did not give it quite the attention I needed to come to a conclusion about how successful it was on dealing with the question of European vs Native American culture and the problems of colonialism (I suspect the answer is that it tried hard and was not entirely successful). I also kept getting hung up on small details and the fact that the "beautiful, independently wealthy, orphan heiress with an understanding uncle and a magic house" all sort of smacked of wish-fulfillment juvenilia (at least, Tamson house is just the sort of place that figured heavily in my idea of the perfect place to live -- four-acre cloistered garden and all -- throughout my youth and I wouldn't mind having it now, either, if it came with staff) that made me a bit uncomfortable with the book on the whole. I suspect I would have enjoyed this a lot if I'd encountered it when it first came out (and I was in my middle teens). On the other hand, I really liked that a lot of the conflict came from people of good will coming from vastly different starting points and resolving their conflicts as they came to understand their circumstances, their experiences, and each other better. I wish more books would do this.
Genius Squad (unabridged audiobook), Genius Series, Book 2, by Catherine Jinks, read by Justine Eyre. Despite being physically present for much of the action, Sonia has, literally and figuratively, much less of a voice in this installment, which is disappointing.
Genius Wars (unabridged audiobook), Genius Series, Book 3, by Catherine Jinks, read by Justine Eyre. This book really suffers from being stuck in Cadel's POV which flattens out the other characters in the book considerably.
