"The Outliers" by Kimberly McCreight


Bestselling author McCreight ("Reconstructing Amelia") pens her first young adult novel, which will likely still appeal to her adult audience.

But when her best friend disappears and begins texting her cryptic messages, she tries to save her friend, and hopefully herself.

Clint Hill was a Secret Service agent who worked closely with Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford and their families. His behind-the-scenes memoir also works as a history of mid-20th century America.

TED Talks began as inspirational speeches in the areas of technology, entertainment and design, but have grown to be a massive industry across all walks of life. Fans of the short inspiring presentations, and those who have to do public speaking themselves, will both find bits of information in this guide. Also available in ebook and Playaway

The latest in this Regency series is a light retelling of "Taming of the Shrew." Playboy earl Owen doesn't want to marry at all, but he definitely doesn't want to marry the eldest Hobbs sister Lavinia, and the feeling is mutual.
