From the New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia comes a fast-paced teen series where one girl learns that in a world of intrigue, betrayal, and deeply buried secrets, it is vital to trust your instincts. It all starts with a text: Please, Wylie, I need your help. Wylie hasn’t heard from Cassie in over a week, not since their last fight. But that doesn’t matter. Cassie’s in trouble, so Wylie decides to do what she has done so many times before: save her best friend from herself. This time it’s different, though. Instead of telling Wylie where she is, Cassie sends cryptic clues. And instead of having Wylie come by herself, Jasper shows up saying Cassie sent him to help. Trusting the guy who sent Cassie off the rails doesn’t feel right, but Wylie has no choice but to ignore her gut instinct and go with him. But figuring out where Cassie is goes from difficult to dangerous, fast. As Wylie and Jasper head farther and farther north into the dense woods of Maine, Wylie struggles to control her growing sense that something is really wrong. What isn’t Cassie telling them? And could finding her be only the beginning? In this breakneck tale, New York Times bestselling author Kimberly McCreight brilliantly chronicles a fateful journey that begins with a single decision—and ends up changing everything.

In this stunning bestseller, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he reveals the secrets of software billionaires like Bill Gates, why you've never heard of the smartest man in the world, why almost no star hockey players are born in the fall, why Asians are good at math, what made the Beatles the greatest rock band and, why, when it comes to plane crashes, where the pilots are from matters as much as how well they are trained. The lives of outliers follow a peculiar and unexpected logic, and in uncovering that logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating blueprint for making the most of human potential--one that transforms the way we understand success.

Tired of cliché career advice? Learn The Outlier Approach! If you have no fancy pedigree, massive funding for your company, and weak professional contacts, this book can help you take your career to the next level. Although written for the nonconformists, many of the methodologies can be applied for anyone -Break into any industry with no connections -Create something with nothing by understanding how to exchange value using a "social spread" -Build a "vertical network" instead of a "horizontal network" (a.k.a frenemy zone) which may be limiting your career -Master how to use traditional media and receive unlimited press to grow your business or personal brand -Learn how to sell "vision" instead of "product" to win job interviews, raise money, and recruit superstars for your cause Too many books discuss the same people, same companies, and same concepts, resulting in cliché advice. One of the main reasons behind this phenomenon is due to the fact that so many books on business and professional development are written by authors with limited professional experience or are written by authors who share similar backgrounds. Furthermore, too many successful professionals lack writing experience, resulting in books that may have great content but poor narration. Kevin Hong, who is a columnist for Inc. Magazine, not only shares his experience working in Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and Wall Street, but also interviews and shares his experience working with high profile executives and entrepreneurs who have built their companies to nine or ten figures as well as Hollywood celebrities, YouTube celebrities, a former NBA star, and even a politician to share the most unorthodox ways of winning in one's career and business. Some of his highlights include working on a start-up lesson video which included Justin Kan, who sold his company Twitch for $1 billion, and other Silicon Valley elites as well as advising on film distribution for the film 'The 60 Yard-Line, which featured notable celebrities such as Randall Park and Chuck Liddell. He also managed to squeeze in an interview with Psy's adviser from Korea who helped Psy bridge a partnership with Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber's manager, to help make Gangnam Style into the viral video it became. Hong, who is now a C-Level executive of a subsidiary of a publicly traded company, built his last start-up up to a $15 million valuation and has shared his business advice by contributing articles for CNBC, Forbes, Huffington Post, Inc., Film Journal, Korea's Maeil news and various media outlets. The book, which is written in a unique style, does not try to "teach" you another lesson. The goal of the book is to illustrate "The Outlier Approach" by bringing in the reader into the experience opposed to explaining business concepts in a long drawn out lecture style. The book has an emphasis on character development and conflict in order to explain the "why" and "how" when certain strategies need to be applied in one's career. Ultimately, if you are not interested in walking a straight line or following textbook directions to succeed in your career, this book is for you. This book is for the oddballs, misfits, outliers, rebels, and nonconformists in all of us.

Welcome to the Dead House. Three students: dead. Carly Johnson: vanished without a trace. Two decades have passed since an inferno swept through Elmbridge High, claiming the lives of three teenagers and causing one student, Carly Johnson, to disappear. The main suspect: Kaitlyn, "the girl of nowhere." Kaitlyn's diary, discovered in the ruins of Elmbridge High, reveals the thoughts of a disturbed mind. Its charred pages tell a sinister version of events that took place that tragic night, and the girl of nowhere is caught in the center of it all. But many claim Kaitlyn doesn't exist, and in a way, she doesn't - because she is the alter ego of Carly Johnson. Carly gets the day. Kaitlyn has the night. It's during the night that a mystery surrounding the Dead House unravels and a dark, twisted magic ruins the lives of each student that dares touch it. Debut author Dawn Kurtagich masterfully weaves together a thrilling and terrifying story using psychiatric reports, witness testimonials, video footage, and the discovered diary - and as the mystery grows, the horrifying truth about what happened that night unfolds.
