The #1 New York Times and USA Today best-selling phenomenon Some things are worth waiting for…. Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at that fateful Halloween party five years ago - an event that forever changed her life. What she never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she's building for herself. Some things are worth experiencing.... Cameron Hamilton is six feet, three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make Avery want things she believed had been irrevocably stolen from her. Getting involved with him is dangerous. Yet ignoring the simmering tension that sparks between them - and brings out a side of her she never knew existed - is impossible. Some things shouldn't be kept quiet.... But when Avery starts receiving threatening e-mails and phone calls, she's forced to face a past she wants to keep buried and acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. If the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface with one less scar? And will Cam be there to help her? And some things are worth fighting for.... 1. Language: English.

Meet Darryl Graham, or as his new neighbors call him, The Man in 3B. Darryl's new to the Jamaica, Queens building, but from day one he's made quite an impression on his neighbors. He has made it very clear he greatly values his privacy, but he is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, so inquiring minds want to know.

The Travis series concludes with the fourth installment from award-wining author Lisa Kleypas. Wedding planner Avery Crosslin may be a rising star in Houston society, but she doesn't believe in love-at least not for herself. When she meets wealthy bachelor Joe Travis and mistakes him for a wedding photographer, she has no intention of letting him sweep her off her feet. But Joe is a man who goes after what he wants, and Avery can't resist the temptation of a sexy southern charmer and a hot summer evening. After a one night stand, however, Avery is determined to keep it from happening again. A man like Joe can only mean trouble for a woman like her, and she can't afford distractions. She's been hired to plan the wedding of the year-a make-or-break event. But complications start piling up fast, putting the wedding in jeopardy, especially when shocking secrets of the bride come to light. And as Joe makes it clear that he's not going to give up easily, Avery is forced to confront the insecurities and beliefs that stem from a past she would do anything to forget. The situation reaches a breaking point, and Avery faces the toughest choice of her life. Only by putting her career on the line and risking everything - including her well-guarded heart - will she find out what matters most.

Great American Foot Race

This accessible and thoroughly researched nonfiction debut introduces young readers to a fascinating, little-known event—the Transcontinental Foot Race, which came to be known as the Bunion Derby. It is set in 1928, the height of the Roaring Twenties—a time of optimism, a time of excess, and the Age of Ballyhoo. Publicity-seeking Americans tried to outdo each other with outrageous stunts. Dance marathoners danced for days on end, pole-sitters sat atop flagpoles for weeks, trained athletes worked to beat records, and Charles Lindbergh made the first solo transatlantic flight. What could top this? Cyrus Avery, an ordinary Oklahoma businessman, teamed up with C. C. Pyle, the 'P. T. Barnum of Professional Sports,' to hold a transcontinental foot race. More than 100 men of all races and nationalities started the race in California and faced all manner of obstacles—from extreme weather to poor food and living conditions, to prejudice to injury—to make the cross-country journey across the United States, ending in New York City. This 'Bunion Derby' pushed human endurance to the limits in an unforgettable show of 'ballyhoo.' This book is written in a folksy style that perfectly captures the mood and tone of the late 1920s and includes archival photographs, a map of the derby route, stats, a bibliography, and source notes.

What is the truth behind our existence? Does every decision lay the groundwork for our life or is each person's future predestined? Have we lived, or can we ever live, in other times or parallel universes? And are there scientific explanations for visions and dreams, or are they figments of our imagination, the result of complex electrical signals racing through our brains at random? Izzy doesn't know, and frankly couldn't care less. A young member of the working poor, she struggles with mounting depression and continual financial hardship, and more recently with increasingly frequent, frighteningly realistic dreams. Or are they dreams? Unknown to Izzy, while in her mother's womb she experienced an event that rewired her brain and left her with a unique gift; the ability to project her subconscious 'self' into the past, as well as explore the mysteries - and dangers - of alternate futures. On the other side of the country, Avery, a researcher in charge of the CIAs newly resurrected remote viewing (ESP) program, has discovered Izzy's unique ability. She's a perfect candidate, for both his research and a plan to secretly sell the technology. Unaware of Avery's motives or his CIA connection, Izzy agrees to participate. The two immediately clash and Izzy wreaks havoc on his research, making Avery all the more determined to see his scheme through and destroy Izzy in the process. Izzy soon realizes that her life and the lives of those around her will always be in danger as long as she's alive. In a final standoff, she takes the only option available - one that seems to guarantee her death, yet may be her only chance to survive. Winner of the 2011 Best Emerging Fiction Writer contest, N. S. Franklin is a freelance writer based out of Boston, MA. This is the author's first novel.
