Summary

Sometimes just surviving second period is an accomplishment! 
Zach Ziegler’s mom says he’s “big-boned.”  His grandfather referred to him as “strapping.”  His dad, whom he never sees much, calls him “Sporto.”  No one uses the F-word:  fat.  But Zach’s arch-nemesis, Trevor, doesn’t mind pointing out the obvious, and Zach is horrified when Trevor christens him with a new nickname in front of the whole PE class.  If that isn’t bad enough, the science fair is coming up, and Zach and Trevor are paired up on a project.  And just when it seems things can’t possibly get any worse, Zach’s cat destroys what Zach and Trevor have spent days putting together.  Will Zach survive sixth grade, or is he destined to be murdered before the school year is over?

At school, her classmates think she’s weird, but she’s bigger and stronger than all of them. And at least she has music to keep her company. When a mysterious stranger named Kamo shows up looking for his dad, he is convinced that Tess and her stepfather may have the answers he’s been searching for. The more time she spends with Kamo, the more she realizes how much they have in common.

    The first rule of football--don't screw with a streak. 
      
     My career is finally looking up, and I'm leading a new pro team down the field every Sunday. No way will I mess with that. But when I meet the most stunning and captivating woman I've ever seen, I tell myself one night will have to be enough.   
      
     But it's not. And now I can't get her out of my mind. Even when I'm playing. Even when I need to focus. Even when I'm on the hottest streak of my life.  
     
    And it turns out, she's not just some random woman I met. She works for the team. My team. 
      
     *** 
     
    I only have one goal this season--do my part as the team's lawyer to keep them out of trouble. Help rebuild their reputation on and off the field. There's no room for error and certainly no room for a secret tryst with a player . . . even if he's the quarterback.

    NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES 
    Dear Reader, 
    You have undoubtedly picked up this book by mistake, so please put it down. Nobody in their right mind would read this particular book about the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire on purpose, because each dismal moment of their stay in the village of V.F.D. has been faithfully and dreadfully recorded in these pages. 
    I can think of no single reason why anyone would want to open a book containing such unpleasant matters as migrating crows, an angry mob, a newspaper headline, the arrest of innocent people, the Deluxe Cell, and some very strange hats. It is my solemn and sacred occupation to research each detail of the Baudelaire children's lives and write them all down, but you may prefer to do some other solemn and sacred thing, such as reading another book instead. 
    With all due respect, 
    Lemony Snicket
