A positive, authoritative guide on getting the most from a plant-based diet. Veganism is one of the fastest-growing movements across the world, with a 600% increase in Veganism in the USA from 2014–2017. This lifestyle choice, however, is not without its difficulties. As with any diet, changing what we eat means that we also need to change the way we eat and how we think about food. Simply cutting out meat and eating more vegetables doesn’t guarantee a healthy diet. With Vegan Savvy, readers can remedy these pitfalls so that they feel healthy and bursting with energy and vitality. This is the simple, flexible, and nutritionally approved way to make it easier to stick to a vegan diet without compromising on health.

From the beloved author of Tweet Cute comes Emma Lord's You Have a Match, a hilarious and heartfelt novel of romance, sisterhood, and friendship. When Abby signs up for a DNA service, it’s mainly to support her friend and secret love interest, Leo. After all, she knows who she is already: avid photographer, injury-prone tree climber, best friend to Leo and Connie. When the DNA service reveals Abby has a secret sister, shimmery-haired Instagram star Savannah Tully, it’s hard to believe they’re from the same planet, never mind the same parents — especially considering Savannah, queen of green smoothies, is only a year and a half older than Abby herself. The logical course of action? Meet up at summer camp (obviously) and figure out why Abby’s parents gave Savvy up for adoption. But there are complications: Savvy is a rigid rule-follower and total narc. Leo is the camp’s co-chef, putting Abby's growing feelings for him on blast. And her parents have a secret that threatens to unravel everything. But part of life is showing up, leaning in, and learning to fit all your awkward pieces together. Because sometimes, the hardest things can also be the best ones. “A YA contemporary set at summer camp? Count us in.” - BuzzFeed “Heartfelt and engaging, You Have a Match is a masterclass on love in all its forms.” - Sophie Gonzales, author of Only Mostly Devastated and Perfect on Paper “A bright summer tale of connection and self-discovery.” - Booklist “A cute, feel-good coming-of-age story.” - Kirkus
