Voice Lessons is the story of one younger sister growing up in the shadow of a larger-than-life older sister-looking up to her, wondering how they were alike and how they were different and, ultimately, learning how to live her own life and speak in her own voice on her own terms. As Cara Mentzel, studied, explored, married, gave birth (twice) and eventually became an elementary school teacher, she watched her sister, Idina Menzel, from the wings and gives readers a front row seat to opening night of Rent and Wicked , a seat at the Tonys, and a place on the red carpet when her sister taught millions more, as the voice of Queen Elsa in the animated musical Frozen, to ´´Let It Go.´´ Voice Lessons is the story of sisters-sisters with pig tails, sisters with boyfriends and broken hearts, sisters as mothers and aunts, sisters as teachers and ice-queens, sisters as allies and confidantes. As Cara puts it, ´´ My big sister is Tony-Award-Winning, Gravity-Defying, Let-It-Go-Singing Idina Menzel who has received top billing on Broadway marquees, who has performed for Barbra Streisand and President Obama, at the Super Bowl and at the Academy Awards. The world knows her as ´Idina Menzel´, but I call her ´Dee´.´´ Voice Lessons is their story.

AS HEARD ON BBC RADIO 2 FACT NOT FICTION BOOKCLUB AND READ BY BILL NIGHY ON AUDIO ´I was hoping against hope that the penguin would survive because as of that instant he had a name, and with his name came the beginning of a bond which would last a life-time´ Tom Michell is in his roaring twenties: single, free-spirited and seeking adventure. He has a plane ticket to South America, a teaching position in a prestigious Argentine boarding school, and endless summer holidays. He even has a motorbike, Che Guevara style. What he doesn´t need is a pet. What he really doesn´t need is a pet penguin. Set against Argentina´s turbulent years following the collapse of the corrupt Perónist regime, this is the heart-warming story of Juan Salvador the penguin, rescued by Tom from an oil slick in Uruguay just days before a new term. When the bird refuses to leave Tom´s side, the young teacher has no choice but to smuggle it across the border, through customs, and back to school. Whether it´s as the rugby team´s mascot, the housekeeper´s confidant, the host at Tom´s parties or the most flamboyant swimming coach in world history, Juan Salvador transforms the lives of all he meets - in particular one homesick school boy. And as for Tom, he discovers in Juan Salvador a compadre like no other... The Penguin Lessons is a unique and moving true story which has captured imaginations around the globe - for all those who dreamed as a child they might one day talk to the animals.

Laura is an English teacher who earns extra money giving private lessons. She is also a smoking hot cougar whos tired of men her age and looking for a cub. But right now needs to work as much as possible to make ends meet. Laura gets an opportunity to work and play when the father of her student Max makes her an offer. Max is a virgin and Laura is paid to give him some very sexy private lessons. ----- Excerpt ----- So what does that have to do with now? I asked. Max is in the same exact spot and he needs to learn to be with a woman. He looked away, took a deep breath then asked, Laura would you be willing to teach him? I stared at him, was he serious? He was avoiding making eye contact with me which told me this probably wasnt a joke, if it was he would be watching for my reaction, not looking everywhere else. He then sealed it when he said softly, Ill pay you. Are you kidding? I blurted out, What do you think I am; a whore? No, no! He put his hands out in a calming gesture, Im sorry, I know how it sounds, but I dont really mean it that way. You just offered to pay me to have sex with your son. I threw my hands up, Whos barely a man. Eighteen is barely a man. Hes twenty and lets face it; you didnt mind flaunting your tits to him, now did you? I know I just asked something out of the ordinary of you, but dont get so puffed up, you were teasing him and loving it. He pointed, So am I really that far off in asking? Ouch. I nodded, Okay, you got me, but teasing and doing are different and Im his tutor, been doing that for almost three years, I know him. Thats the point. He said quietly, You know him, he likes you, and hes comfortable with you. It wouldnt be like my old man dumping me off with a stranger. Max would trust you. And Id be earning that trust. I rolled my eyes. Remember, I was watching and it wasnt just Max that looked like he was ready to lose it, the look on your face was straight out of one of those porns he watches. I know sex isnt everything. Ive never been a player or womanizer and I dont want him to be one either, but he lost out on a lot of fun in High school and hes going into his second year of colleges and still a virgin! Come on, you remember college, think of the fun hes missing! These are the best years of his life and hes pissing them away because hes nervous. He laughed, Come on, help the kid out! I admit Ive thought about younger guys in general lately, but Max is different. Only because youre afraid to lose the job. Richard smiled, And that will not happen, trust me. So say I did this. I seduce him; show him what hes missing. Then we just go back to talking about English composition? Ill be done as his teacher, I would have to be. Only if you want to. He said, And what if I told you I have two people on the hook that need a tutor; I can get you more work. So if you wanted to quit here youd be fine. You really think Id do this? What if he says something? Hes a kid, hell brag. He wont because youll tell him real men dont kiss and tell. Thats one of his lessons; if you have sex with a girl you have a better chance of more if you dont run your mouth. You still assume Id do it for money. Laura. He grinned, I know people, I make money knowing people. You broke up with Jeff awhile back and thats when you started really teasing Max. You just said youve been thinking about young guys. He grinned as I frowned, and continued, You commented you havent had much of a life lately. All that adds up to you being frustrated and looking to ease that frustration. Im offering you a chance to do that and help out Max at the same time. How magnanimous of you. I muttered. Oh, and theres your current financial woes as well. Reaching into his shirt pocket he removed a wad of hundred dollar bills and held them up to me. One thousand dollars... He paused and looking me in the eye added, Per lesson.
