What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved? Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to find out. A chick lit enthusiast since the first time she read Bridget Jones´s Diary, Kim, with her blog, Pastel is the New Black, has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that ´´chick lit is dead´´ once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day ekes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law firm. While Kim´s day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving challenged) associate down the hall is another story. Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick lit scene with a hot new book that´s turning heads - and pages - across the land. It´s also popped into Kim´s inbox-for review. With their 10-year reunion drawing near, Kim´s coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah´s book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a ´´blogger girl´´ makes the grade in her offline life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rachel Dulude.

Feisty New Yorker Kimberly Long runs the most popular chick-lit book blog on the web, loves playing house with her sexy lawyer boyfriend, Nicholas, and is finally pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a published author. At first glance, her life is worthy of five pink champagne flutes. But is there more to the story than meets the eye? After hearing the phrase ´´chick lit is dead´´ more times than she´s read The Devil Wears Prada, Kim is driven to desperate measures, seeking advice from up-and-coming chick-lit author Hannah Marshak, her high school nemesis and resident ´´mean girl´´. As if Kim doesn´t have enough on her plate balancing her secretarial duties with her blog, Pastel is the New Black, shrugging off the growing pile of agent rejections, and keeping her best friend from turning green over Kim´s budding friendship with Hannah, Nicholas is so blinded by his career ambitions, he doesn´t see that their home sweet home could use more than a dash of sugar. This is the year when all of Kim´s dreams - professional and romantic - are supposed to come true, but will her story have a happily ever after or will Kim end up unpublished and all alone? 1.

Nearly a third of Americans under the age of thirty have no religious affiliation, the highest in any recorded generation. In this growing segment of ´´nones´´ are many young Atheists who have faced prejudice in their high schools and communities for standing up for their constitutional right of freedom from religion. You´ll hear some of their stories in this book, whether they´re protesting their school´s public prayers at football games and graduations or sitting out the ´´under God´´ portion of the Pledge of Allegiance. These atheist students know their rights and have fought for them, sometimes at tremendous personal cost. Their examples serve as inspiration for all the young atheists out there who live in communities where school often feels no different from church and teachers are no different from preachers. This handbook is a resource for parents, teachers, friends, and young atheists themselves. Hemant Mehta, ´´The Friendly Atheist´´, blogger at patheos.com, discusses how to deal with teachers and administrators who promote faith in public schools, handle the peer pressure and ostracism that may come with being an outspoken atheist, and create successful student groups that encourage conversation over conversion. 1.
