First, let me introduce you to the recipient of this New Mommy Survival Kit: my dear friend, Laura! So, when Brittany visited us here in Orlando over her spring break last month, we conspired to create a care package for our third musketeer. I know you’d come up with some pretty clever and funny diaper notes if put to the task, Thalita! Thanks for being my partner in crime on this one, B, and for coming up with the idea for a New Mommy Survival Kit in the first place!
Those little notes were definitely the most fun part of putting together this Survival Kit. Oh and I love the diaper note about Ace of Base-seriously what was that song actually about and how come I never realized how strange it was when I sang it as a kid!?!?! Yes, we knew that the baby would be getting a lot of gifts, so we wanted to ensure Laura had some items specifically for her and her alone.
I love this idea… and it seems right at the time of life when so many people I know are having little ones… I might be replicating this many, many times over! Yes, we wanted to explain our thinking behind each and every gift, so the little notes were our way of sending our voice in the package with those gifties!
I don’t know if your friend will be nursing, but if she is, these lactation cookies are great! And yet, in the last six months, McDonald’s has had multiple social media disasters related to their company’s HR documents and ventures. In July, McDonald’s released an employee budget guide on its McResources website with unachievable recommendations. In October, activists released a video that demonstrated McDonald’s internal helpline telling employees to sign up for food stamps. In November, McDonald’s added more tone-deaf tips to the McResources website, including ones that suggested employees struggling to make ends meet should sell their unopened holiday presents and other possessions, as well as break food into smaller pieces to feel more full. Earlier this month, McDonald’s added etiquette tips explaining how much to tip for luxuries inaccessible to the majority of its front-line workers. Most recently, McDonald’s told employees that they should minimize their consumption of fast food to be healthier.
Having such a website does make it easier for external people to point out inconsistencies, but not having one doesn’t make it impossible. Throughout this, McDonald’s has maintained that the controversial content for McResources was created by third-party experts – Visa, Wealth Watchers International, Nurtur Health.
At this point, McDonald’s needs their Chief Human Resources Officer, Richard Floersch, to get aboard the social media train. Floersch’s department has been responsible for the employee guidance fiascos of the last six months.
We are six months away from the release of NEVER ALWAYS SOMETIMES, but as I learned with LET’S GET LOST, it’s never too soon to start the journey!
I’m thrilled to be presenting the cover of my second novel, and so excited for everyone to get to meet Dave and Julia.

Order your copy here.Second StarA twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this dark, contemporary ocean-side adventure inspired by Peter Pan -- and written by Alyssa Sheinmel -- is tinged with a touch of dark magic as it follows seventeen-year-old Wendy Darling on a search for her missing surfer brothers. Young Widows Club is the moving story of a teenage bride who is forced back to the high school life she thought she'd left behind. We’re very pleased to offer a heartfelt Happy Book Birthday to Regine’s Book: A Teen Girl’s Last Words, the first book in our new True Stories line.
Regine was in many ways a very typical teenager, but at an age when most kids are worrying about prom, tests, and college, she was worrying about whether or not her wig looked natural. It was this incredible hope and love for others that carried Regine through the 15 months of her illness.
In Regine’s memory, we urge you to also consider supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in any way you can.
Zest Books invites you to join our “Blog in Memory of Regine” initiative and blog not only in memory of Regine, but also in solidarity with all who have been affected by cancer. Thank you for sharing Regine’s story with the world – everyone needs to read this, if only to help gain some much needed perspective on life!
I love that it is not just stuff for the baby, but also a few thoughtful pampering gifts for the new mom-very important too. The National Employment Law Project estimates that American taxpayers subsidize McDonald’s non-management employees by $1.2 billion in taxes per year (PDF). These recommendations came alongside others that suggested employees should take two vacations a year, and sing to relieve stress instead of complaining about it. Though the McResources website was ostensibly “employees-only,” in practice, it was accessible to anyone who registered, as it did not verify employee credentials.
McDonald’s considers Twitter to be a major part of their social strategy; Floersch should join the conversation there. Even if third parties were responsible for actual content production, did McDonald’s not bother to read through the content before releasing it?
The night before high school started, these two loner best friends came up with The Nevers, a list of cliches they promised themselves never to do. After the sprawling, ensemble-cast feel of LET’S GET LOST, it was great to change gears and zoom in on two people that are as close as it gets (though not that close; Never date your best friend was the last item on the list).
Everybody in the small town knows about her painful betrayal of her boyfriend Patrick Donnelly with his brother Gabe.
Their paths were set: doctors, lawyers, business moguls, they were going to light the world on fire. He’s asking questions no one wants answered, and soon rumors threaten to divide the community once more.
Kiss and TellIn the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations. At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover that they all hate the same person: handsome womanizer Nolan Hotchkiss, who's done things to hurt each of them.
By the shockingly twisted end, readers will be faced with the most haunting question of all: Is there evil in all of us? But her older self is also keeping a dark secret: Something terrible is about to happen to Ashley.
Salter's novel is a gripping and emotional story about the devastating consequences of bullying. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that’s being compared to Gone Girl, American Psycho, and Stephen King’s Misery.
I finally got the opportunity to take her this weekend(my last free weekend for a while) and we had a blast! Regine’s Book tells the moving story of teenager Regine Stokke’s struggle to survive—and to really live—despite being diagnosed with cancer. During this time she also had her photographs displayed in a museum exhibit, attended concerts, enjoyed her friends and family, and advocated for others to register as blood and bone marrow donors.
And stop at our giveaway page to enter to win one of five copies of Regine’s Book that we’re giving away this month.


Zest Books is making a donation to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team in Training in Regine’s honor upon publication of the book.
Great idea though, seriously… My cousin is pregnant with her first and a kit like this would be so amazing to mail to her!!
I sent her onesies for the baby plus a few little things from their registry as well as some coffee, tea, and mugs for the mom and dad to be and some chocolate and peanut butter candy that she’s been craving!
This video was part of a series of videos pointing out the inconsistencies in the content of McDonald’s McResources website. If your company’s treatment of its employees is so poor that it makes headlines continuously, maybe you need to do something about it. This would demonstrate that McDonald’s views its brand reputation as important enough that a C-level executive with company-wide decision-making power is paying attention to what its customers are saying about it on social media, and truly listening for ways it can improve. Did they not understand that this content would become a major part of the online conversation about McDonald’s, and that this would reflect poorly on the company? Now, surrounded by gossip and prying eyes, Molly must somehow survive 99 days in her old home town before she leaves for college. Everyone in this small town is keeping big secrets—especially Landy’s old friends—and someone is willing to kill to keep their darkest deeds buried.
And no matter how hard she tries, she can't make her best friend, Matt, fall in love with her.
An Imitation of Raven Rogen, Ven spent her days confined in the lab, studying videos of her Authentic, all so she could step into Raven’s life at a moment’s notice. When the all-male Military discovered that she was actually a woman, she was sent home and erased from history. It was relaxing to just enjoy Islands of Adventure without the pressure of a crowd of friends and to just be a kid again! So of course I spent a good solid three hours exploring Hogsmead, drinking more than my fair share of frozen Butter Beer.
Good lord I’m probably the nerdiest girl alive but we did get the Green Goblin to agree with us along with Spider Man while they teased us about our love of Thor saying he was coming out next but he never did!
The book contains Regine’s poignant, funny, and inspirational blog entries, and also features a selection of Regine’s own photos, as well as comments from blog readers and entries from those who loved her most. Regine’s Book shows her as a typical teenager in a terrifying situation, with an amazing will to live, and the lessons she learned have relevance for all of us. All the marketing and social media efforts in the world can’t make up for misguided internal policies.
I hope readers, new and returning alike, will fall in love with Dave and Julia like I did, and discover that, every now and then, it’s okay to embrace the cliches.
Though he was never charged, vicious rumors drove him from town, and the circle of friends broke.
Regine’s Book deals with all the facets of living with cancer, from the good days to the bad and everything in between. Through Regine’s eyes, readers will discover a more vivid world—and a new appreciation for life, art, and the power of the human spirit. So neat you’ve all stayed close friends and what a great compilation of gifts you put together for Laura!
Out of sheer boredom—or maybe something else—Dave and Julia decide to check off every item on the list, confident that they avoided turning into high school cliches. But when Nolan turns up dead in the exact way they'd discussed, the girls suddenly become prime suspects in his murder.
I’m a huge Harry Potter nerd and honestly thought I was at Hogwarts my entire high school career! Their adventures lead them to parties, road trips, and to a handful of unexpected realizations about the people they’ve spent four years avoiding. But their relationship is forbidden, just stolen moments between training sessions and missions.
Unless they find the real killer, and soon, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them.
