It doesn’t help that her best friend and cousin, Olivia, grew a foot over the summer and won a spot on the school’s dance team, shooting her up on the popularity scale.

Braces-wearing, manga-loving, uncoordinated Kat is a warthog.Plus, Tyler, Kat’s next-door neighbor and buddy since birth, morphed into a really cute boy over the summer.

New York Times bestselling author of The Power of Broke and "Shark" on ABC's hit show Shark Tank explores how grit, persistence, and good old-fashioned hard work are the backbone of every successful business and individual, and inspires readers to Rise & Grind their way the top.Daymond John knows what it means to push yourself hard--and he also knows how spectacularly a killer work ethic can pay off. As a young man, he founded a modest line of clothing on a $40 budget by hand-sewing hats between his shifts at Red Lobster. Today, his brand FUBU has over $6 billion in sales. Convenient though it might be to believe that you can shortcut your way to the top, says John, the truth is that if you want to get and stay ahead, you need to put in the work. You need to out-think, out-hustle, and out-perform everyone around you. You've got to rise and grind every day. In the anticipated follow-up to the bestselling The Power of Broke, Daymond takes an up close look at the hard-charging routines and winning secrets of individuals who have risen to the challenges in their lives and grinded their way to the very tops of their fields. Along the way, he also reveals how grit and persistence both helped him overcome the obstacles he has faced in life and ultimately fueled his success.
New York Times bestselling author and social media expert Gary Vaynerchuk shares hard-won advice on how to connect with customers and beat the competition. A mash-up of the best elements of Crush It! and The Thank You Economy with a fresh spin, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook is a blueprint to social media marketing strategies that really works. When managers and marketers outline their social media strategies, they plan for the “right hook”—their next sale or campaign that’s going to knock out the competition. Even companies committed to jabbing—patiently engaging with customers to build the relationships crucial to successful social media campaigns—want to land the punch that will take down their opponent or their customer’s resistance in one blow. Right hooks convert traffic to sales and easily show results. Except when they don’t.Thanks to massive change and proliferation in social media platforms, the winning combination of jabs and right hooks is different now. Vaynerchuk shows that while communication is still key, context matters more than ever. It’s not just about developing high-quality content, but developing high-quality content perfectly adapted to specific social media platforms and mobile devices—content tailor-made for Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Tumblr.
Tim Ferriss, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek, shares the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure book—a compilation of tools, tactics, and habits from 130+ of the world's top performers. From iconic entrepreneurs to elite athletes, from artists to billionaire investors, their short profiles can help you answer life's most challenging questions, achieve extraordinary results, and transform your life.From the author: In 2017, several of my close friends died in rapid succession. It was a very hard year, as it was for many people. It was also a stark reminder that time is our scarcest, non-renewable resource. With a renewed sense of urgency, I began asking myself many questions: Were my goals my own, or simply what I thought I should want? How much of life had I missed from underplanning or overplanning? How could I be kinder to myself? How could I better say “no” to the trivial many to better say “yes” to the critical few? How could I best reassess my priorities and my purpose in this world? To find answers, I reached out to the most impressive world-class performers in the world, ranging from wunderkinds in their 20s to icons in their 70s and 80s. No stone was left unturned. This book contains their answers—practical and tactical advice from mentors who have found solutions. Whether you want to 10x your results, get unstuck, or reinvent yourself, someone else has traveled a similar path and taken notes. This book, Tribe of Mentors, includes many of the people I grew up viewing as idols or demi-gods. Less than 10% have been on my podcast (The Tim Ferriss Show, more than 200 million downloads), making this a brand-new playbook of playbooks. No matter your challenge or opportunity, something in these pages can help. Among other things, you will learn:• More than 50 morning routines—both for the early riser and those who struggle to get out of bed.• How TED curator Chris Anderson realized that the best way to get things done is to let go.• The best purchases of $100 or less (you'll never have to think about the right gift again).• How to overcome failure and bounce back towards success.• Why Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton believes that the best art will always be the riskiest.• How to meditate and be more mindful (and not just for those that find it easy).• Why tennis champion Maria Sharapova believe that “losing makes you think in ways victories can’t.”• How to truly achieve work-life balance (and why most people tell you it isn’t realistic).• How billionaire Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz transformed the way he engages with difficult situations to reduce suffering.• Ways to thrive (and survive) the overwhelming amount of information you process every day.• How to achieve clarity on your purpose and assess your priorities.• And much more. This reference book, which I wrote for myself, has already changed my life. I certainly hope the same for you. I wish you luck as you forge your own path. All the best, Tim Ferriss

A Love Between the Bases Doubleheader CRUSHING IT For Crush Taylor, owning the Kilby Catfish baseball team has lost its edge. What fires him up these days is ice queen Wendy Trent, mayor of Kilby and official thorn in his side. Wendy has worked incredibly hard to attain her position. She can’t let the brash, irrepressible, oh-so-tempting Crush jeopardize her success. Then a brilliant young female pitching phenom shows up in Kilby. Finally Crush and Wendy want the same thing--make baseball history. Giving in to their wild attraction in the process? Grand slam. But falling in love could be the biggest game changer of all. DOUBLE PLAY Charismatic centerfielder Dwight Conner is more than ready for The Call. Is he stuck in the minors thanks to the team’s gorgeous new “whiz kid”—data specialist Maggie Blythe?

Shortstop Jim Lieberman has been pining over Nina Stark ever since he nearly landed in her lap chasing a foul ball. Maybe a double date will break the ice so he can stake his claim. Nina’s dream is a normal life after a childhood of turmoil. But she’s secretly in love with the one man who apparently will never ask her out—and no, a double date doesn’t count. Can two star-crossed couples add up to double the happy ever after?
