Can geeky Jerry Flack win the election for class president, running against the most popular boy around? For the first time in his life, Jerry Flack is OK with being a dork. He has fun new friends, he’s on the school science team, and he even has a girlfriend. Everything is going great—until his friends convince him to run for class president against Gabe Marshall, the most popular guy in school. How can Jerry compete, especially when Gabe is doing all he can to embarrass him and show the whole school what a dork Jerry really is? He is determined to ignore Gabe’s pranks and focus on the upcoming election. But as Gabe’s tricks get more dangerous—and more humiliating—Jerry has a choice to make: He can get even with Gabe, or he can prove to the school that being a dork doesn’t mean he isn’t cool.

For eight years, single mother Grace Archer has been living a picture-perfect life raising her daughter on a horse farm in the small town of Tallanville, Alabama. Watching Frankie grow into a talented and confident young girl has made Grace as happy as any mother could hope to be. Happy enough, even, to forget the past. But the past never quite goes away. Which is why a certain charismatic man also moved to Tallanville eight years ago to watch over her. But when violence threatens to shatter Grace and Frankie's idyllic home, the waiting is over. The ghosts of the past have returned. And they're hungry for blood. Now Grace must resume an identity she thought she had cast off forever, and match wits with an opponent as deadly as he is cunning. The prize: an extraordinary secret that only she can unfold. The forfeit: losing the thing more precious to her than life itself.

Each autumn, one of nature's most magnificent dramas plays out when striped bass undertake a journey, from the northeastern United States to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, in search of food and warmer seas. Writer and angler David DiBenedetto followed this great migration -- the fall run -- for three months in the autumn of 2001. On the Run offers vivid portrayals of the zany and obsessive characters DiBenedetto met on his travels -- including the country's most daring fisherman, an underwater videographer who chucked his corporate job in favor of filming striped bass, and the reclusive angler who claims that catching the world-record striper in 1982 sent his life into a tailspin. Along his route, DiBenedetto also delves into the natural history and biology of this great game fish, and depicts the colorful cultures of the seaside communities where the striped bass reigns supreme.
