"It's a doozie. Set in a science fictional universe where climate change is fixed but people get killed via teleportation, a young woman named Anna Huff has to navigate her adolescence and a murder mystery. It has a little bit of all the genres you love in combinations you've never imagined, and it's easily the funniest thing we've read this year so far." — GQ "Drew Magary's 'first posthumous novel' is so good. It's about big tech, weird futures, growing up, and, intriguingly for us, the absurdity of on-demand global travel." — Roads And Kingdoms When the corporate monolith PortSys brought porting to the masses, CEO Emilia Kirsch and her son Jason accomplished what every other startup company had failed to deliver. They really did change the world. They reversed climate change. They created a multitrillion dollar industry out of thin air, curing economic woes across the globe. They made it so that anyone could be anywhere simply by touching a screen… …including the man who murdered Sarah Huff. Now Sarah’s 17-year-old sister, Anna, is determined to hunt the bastard down. But there are a few problems. She doesn’t know who the killer is, or where in the world he may be at any given moment. Also, she’s stuck at prestigious Druskin Academy, where PortPhones are banned and any student who attempts to port off campus is immediately expelled. It gets stickier. Anna’s also fallen in love with her dazzling new roommate, who just so happens to be Emilia Kirsch’s daughter, Lara. The dean of students wants Anna dead, perhaps literally. And she has only two friends to confide in: one a reckless alcoholic and the other a bizarre fussbudget. Oh, and now she also needs to find Lara, who has mysteriously disappeared from campus. From the author of The Postmortal and The Hike comes his most deliriously entertaining novel yet. Point B is the story of one clever and occasionally determined young woman seeking both love and vengeance, but hardly ready for those two missions to intersect. It takes you to Vietnam, Hollywood, Singapore, Tokyo, inland Mexico, Oxford, the Maldives, Cuba, the coast of Northeast Australia, and ALL points beyond. You will find yourself plunged into a borderless, chaotic, oddly miraculous world that is ruled by a single bloodless corporation, and by a family determined to keep it that way. But PortSys never expected Anna Huff, and Anna Huff never expected love to make her this daring.

A gripping, insightful, humorous firsthand account on the Varsity Blues College Admissions Scandal as seen through the eyes of a parent. From the moment armed federal officers barged into his bedroom at dawn, dragging him away in irons without telling him the nature of his crime, Greg Abbott recounts his experiences all the way through federal prison. Without skirting any wrongdoing, Abbott humanizes a case otherwise marked by federal abuse and one-dimensional, often flagrantly dishonest media portrayals. He shares why he paid $125,000 to Rick Singer’s Key Worldwide Foundation to support his daughter’s standardized test scores, how he believed it was a humane, one-off accommodation for her physical disability—a severe form of Lyme disease that robbed his otherwise accomplished daughter of focus. The author shares unsettling truths about how lives otherwise blessed, even exemplary at times, can become cursed by a single false step taken out of love and compassion, not crass ambition. Such a misstep can incur the government’s wrath where none was needed and become endless grist for media and internet mills to satisfy our insatiable appetites for schadenfreude. His story, in the mere telling, exposes the real scandals of Varsity Blues and explains why citizens of all political stripes should be concerned. “We are merely one side of this multifaceted infamy,” he writes.
