A ridiculously cute, formerly famous new guy dropping into your life? It´s practically every girl´s dream. But not Jules McCallister-Morgan´s. I realize that on paper I look like your standard type-A neurotic overachiever. And maybe I am. But I didn´t get to be the editor of my school´s long-revered newspaper by just showing up. I have one main goal for my senior year: early acceptance into my first-choice Ivy League college - and I will not be deterred by best friends, moms who think I could stand to ´´live a little´´, or boys. At least that was the plan before I knew about Alex Powell. And before Alex Powell betrayed me. I know what you´re thinking: Calm down, Jules. But you don´t understand. This stuff matters. This is my life. And I´m not going down without a fight. Okay, I sort of did. But it´s a sore subject. I mean, I guess everyone knows about Alex Powell? Two years ago you couldn´t go anywhere without hearing about viral video boy band sensation Chaos 4 All. Two years ago Alex Powell was famous. Some people think I´m overreacting. But this. Means. War. Filled with romance, rivalry, and passive-aggressive dog walking, Amy Spalding delivers a hilariously relatable high school story that´s sure to have you falling for The New Guy. 1.

High school senior Tanner Malone has bombed the Test, a high-stakes exam that establishes how much he owes for his corporate-funded education. Burdened by a crushing debt that rules out college, Tanner enlists in the navy of Archangel, a star system with four terraformed worlds. But he hasn´t factored in the space pirates. Just as Tanner begins basic training, the government ramps up its forces to confront a band of rowdy raiders who are wreaking havoc in the void. Led by complex and charismatic Captain Casey, the outlaws love a little murder and mayhem, but they are also democratic, egalitarian, and devoted to freeing each new recruit from debt and corporate oppression. Assigned to the front lines, Tanner soon finds himself caught in the crossfire between ruthless foes, cruel comrades, and unforgiving space. Can he do his duty when good and evil look so much alike? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Timothy Andrés Pabon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/007073/bk_brll_007073_sample.mp3.

MMA cage fighter Jude Malone leads a simple life - eat, sleep and train. His older brother Jax is a legend in the octagon, and while Jude´s had his fair share of recent losses, he´s better than his record. He just needs a chance to prove it. When Jude is suddenly offered the fight of a lifetime by his head coach, there is only one tiny string attached. He decides to go for it, but that little string just might turn out to be the one that unravels him completely. Sadie Briggs is a quiet, introverted tomboy. She was raised by a single father and grew up in his MMA training gym with dozens of sweaty, aggressive men. They only think of her as their sweet little sister, not as a woman who is getting ready to go off to college. That all changes when her longtime crush, Jude Malone, becomes her knight in shining armor after her boyfriend dumps her the week before her senior prom. Jude feels like he´s been sucker punched when Sadie´s unexpected Cinderella transformation forces him to actually see her as a woman for the very first time. Overwhelming lust, jealousy and passion turn out to be the right combination to finally unlock Jude´s cocky alpha fighter inside and out of the cage. Only one thing stands in the way of him winning the world championship welterweight title and a gorgeous girl. The truth. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Blackthorne.

A candid new political memoir from Senator John McCain - his most personal book in years - covering everything from 2008 up to the present. In a time when Washington, DC and the country are more polarized than they have been for decades, John McCain is the rare public figure who has earned the respect of people on both sides of the aisle. He is a model for bipartisanship and political integrity. In his 40 years in politics, McCain has never been afraid to buck trends or ruffle a few feathers. His words are more important today than ever. The Restless Wave begins in 2008, with McCain´s presidential campaign, and then follows the senator during his time as a senior Republican lawmaker through the Obama administration, when the country was tested at home and abroad. McCain shares his experiences during the divisive 2016 election and his no-holds-barred opinions on the current developments coming out of Washington. He also discusses the vital challenges from abroad: Russia, NATO, the campaign to defeat ISIS, and our ongoing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, among others. Candid, pragmatic, and always fascinating, John McCain holds nothing back in his latest memoir. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John McCain, Beau Bridges.

Foreword by Laszlo Bock, the best-selling author of Work Rules! and former senior vice president of People Operations at Google.An inspiring guide from Dolly Chugh, an award-winning social psychologist at the New York University Stern School of Business, on how to confront difficult issues including sexism, racism, inequality, and injustice so that you can make the world (and yourself) better.Many of us believe in equality, diversity, and inclusion. But how do we stand up for those values in our turbulent world? The Person You Mean to Be is the smart, ´´semi-bold´´ person’s guide to fighting for what you believe in.Dolly reveals the surprising causes of inequality, grounded in the ´´psychology of good people´´. Using her research findings in unconscious bias as well as work across psychology, sociology, economics, political science, and other disciplines, she offers practical tools to respectfully and effectively talk politics with family, to be a better colleague to people who don’t look like you, and to avoid being a well-intentioned barrier to equality. Being the person we mean to be starts with a look at ourselves.She argues that the only way to be on the right side of history is to be a good-ish - rather than good - person. Good-ish people are always growing. Second, she helps you find your ´´ordinary privilege´´ - the part of your everyday identity you take for granted, such as race for a white person, sexual orientation for a straight person, gender for a man, or education for a college graduate. This part of your identity may bring blind spots, but it is your best tool for influencing change. Third, Dolly introduces the psychological reasons that make it hard for us to see the bias in and around us. She leads you from willful ignorance to willful awareness. Finally, she guides you on how, when, and whom, to engage (and not engage) in your workplaces, homes, and communities. Her science 1. Language: English.
