The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things

Fifteen-year-old Virginia feels like a fat, awkward outsider in her perfect family, especially next to her golden-boy big brother Byron. She's got a lot to deal with – her weight, her best friend moving away, the mean girls at school – not to mention a boy who seems to like her! To survive, she decides to follow the 'Fat Girl Code of Conduct' to make herself acceptable, unnoticed ... invisible. It seems to be working until something unthinkable happens and, before her eyes, Virginia's flawless family begins to fall apart. As her world spins out of orbit, Virginia realises that breaking the Fat Girl Code might be the only way to create a life that belongs to her. Carolyn Mackler's acclaimed book has been updated for a new audience and is as relevant, funny and full of heart as it was when it was first published fifteen years ago.

Was wäre wenn ..., ich dich heute küsse? Im Mai 1996 bekommt die 16-jährige Emma ihren ersten Computer geschenkt. Mithilfe ihres besten Freunds Josh loggt sie sich ein und gelangt zufällig auf ihre eigene Facebook-Seite – 15 Jahre später. Geschockt stellt sie fest, dass sie mit 31 Jahren arbeitslos und unglücklich verheiratet sein wird. Josh hingegen, bislang alles andere als ein Frauenheld (der erst kürzlich von Emma einen Korb bekommen hat), wird das hübscheste Mädchen der ganzen Schule heiraten und zudem seinen Traumjob ergattern. Emma ist jedoch nicht gewillt, sehenden Auges in ihr Unglück zu laufen. Um das Zusammentreffen mit dem Jungen zu verhindern, der sie später mal unglücklich machen wird, beginnt sie, bewusste Änderungen in der Gegenwart herbeizuführen. Doch der Versuch, in ihr Schicksal einzugreifen und dadurch ihr künftiges Facebook-Profil zu verändern, setzt eine fatale Kettenreaktion in Gang ...

Virginia hat es wirklich nicht leicht. Alle aus ihrer Familie sehen umwerfend aus, sind erfolgreich, sportlich, überall beliebt und sprechen außerdem noch fließend französisch. Mit anderen Worten, sie sind einfach perfekt. Nur sie selbst fällt leider völlig aus dem Rahmen mit ihrem viel zu großen Hintern und ihrem viel zu kleinen Selbstbewusstsein. Doch als auf einmal der von ihr so sehr bewunderte, große Bruder vom College fliegt, erfährt Virginia, dass sich hinter einer perfekten Fassade auch dunkle Geheimnisse verbergen können. Erst stürzt eine Welt für sie ein, aber dann erkennt sie die Chancen dieser Veränderung. Und mit einem Flugticket in der Hand macht sie sich auf den Weg, auch sich selbst neu zu entdecken.

Vegan Virgin Valentine

Mara Valentine is in control. She's a straight-A senior, a vegan, and her parents' pride and joy. She's neck-and-neck with her womanizing ex-boyfriend for number-one class ranking and plans to kick his salutatorian butt on her way out the door to Yale. Mara has her remaining months in Brockport all planned out, but the plan does not include having V, her slutty, pot-smoking, sixteen-year-old niece - yes, niece - come to live with her family. Nor does it involve lusting after her boss or dreaming about grilled cheese sandwiches every night. What does a control freak like Mara do when things start spinning wildly out of control? With insight, authenticity, and a healthy dose of humor, Carolyn Mackler creates an evolving Type A heroine that every reader will recognize - and root for.

Tangled

Paradise wasn't supposed to suck. Not the state of being, but a resort in the Caribbean. Jena, Dakota, Skye, and Owen are all there for different reasons, but at Paradise their lives become tangled together in ways none of them can predict. Paradise will change them all. It will change Jena, whose first brush with romance takes her that much closer to having a life, and not just reading about those infinitely cooler and more exciting. It will change Dakota, who needs the devastating truth about his past to make him realize that he doesn't have to be a jerk just because people think he's one. It will change Skye, a heartbreakingly beautiful actress, who must come to terms with the fact that for once she has to stop playing a role or face the consequences. And it will change Owen, who has never risked anything before and who will take the leap from his online life to a real one all because of a girl he met at Paradise. . . . From confused to confident and back again, one thing's certain: Four months after it all begins, none of them will ever be the same.
