'[Euan] Morton brings distinct voices and emotions to every character...Listeners will be hard-pressed to believe they aren't listening to a full-cast production.' — AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner


Simon Snow is back and he's coming to America!

The story is supposed to be over.

Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after…

So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?

What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light…

That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place…

With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has delivered an audiobook for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And an audiobook for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It’s another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter.

Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over – but your life has just begun.

Omg this book is lovely, also I love Euan Morton's narrations. I want this book made in a movie starring Ezra Miller as Baz!

Rainbow Rowell is such a talented writer. I’m so glad she’s decided to continue her story with Simon and Baz. It’s kinda like Harry Potter meets Percy Jackson. This book is like a new beginning, so don’t look for any character resolutions. I think we’ll see those in later book installments.

Rowell, Rainbow

RAINBOW ROWELL writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults ("Attachments" and "Landline"). Sometimes she writes about teenagers ("Eleanor & Park", "Fangirl "and "Carry On"). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things.

She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
