A girl returns to her exclusive east coast boarding school and finds that she's no longer one of the cool kids on campus in this second novel from the author of For the Record. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Skylar Hoffman’s senior year at her preppy East Coast boarding school should have been perfect: amazing boyfriend the coolest friends the most desirable dorm But it’s far from it. To her dismay, Skylar’s not going to rule senior year because she’s stuck in Abbot House, a tiny dorm known for, well, nothing. Living with a group of strangers everyone thinks is lame is bad enough. Worse is that Skylar wasn’t exactly truthful about how she spent summer break in Los Angeles—and her little white lie is causing her once rock-solid romance to crumble fast. And when it turns out that Skylar’s best friend is the one responsible for having her booted from Lincoln? It’s an all-out war. Stepping out of her comfort zone never felt so scary—or necessary. But everything is different now. Including, maybe, Skylar herself . . . *** "A love letter--brimming with heart, soul, and wit--to everyone who's ever felt left behind . . . perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Rainbow Rowell." --Jeff Zentner, author of The Serpent King From the Hardcover edition.
Skylar Hoffman's plans for a perfect senior year at her East Coast boarding school go awry when she finds herself in a small dorm with unpopular strangers, facing romantic troubles and betrayal by her best friend.

Cooking Geek Going Raw and Going Paleo The Cooking Geek book covers two different diets, the Going Raw diet, and the Paleo Diet. Both diets are ones that have been around for years. People go on these two diets for many reasons. First and foremost, the main reason for "dieting" is for weight loss.

The recipes in the raw foods section cover main dishes, side dishes, appetizers, sauces and breads. There is a special section just for breakfast and brunch too. The Paleo Diet is an ancient diet enjoyed by our very distant ancestors from the Stone Age. During this time, people ate a certain way, ate certain foods, and as a result lived healthier and longer lives. In studying their diets, the Paleo Diet came back and gains in popularity today again. Their main foods consisted of vegetables and meats along with fruits. They did not eat grains or legumes; therefore, the Paleo Diet is very similar to the gluten free diet plans. Many choose this diet to become healthier, to reach a more ideal weight and they choose it as a lifestyle change. The Paleo section details a large variety of recipes.
