About the book

This audio book was written and recorded by the students of the graduation class 2013 at the Robert-Schuman-Gymnasium in Cham (Germany) under the leadership of Stefan Amberger. It is the impressive result of a project oriented seminar called "Radioplay". We would like to congratulate the class on their very good work. They have produced an interesting audio book of good quality. But although their pronunciation is very good, we would like to let you know that there might be some minor pronunciation mistakes in the recording and that the text and the audio files differ slightly sometimes. Speakers: Franziska Bretthauer, Sofie Huber, Miriam Konrad, Lena Kopfmann, Anja Kürzinger, Caroline Obermeier, Jessica Sander, Anna Wagner, Christian Wilde, Leah Memmel
