BY NOW, the issue of substance abuse is familiar enough that we know to look for warning signs. Like waking up under a freeway on an abandoned couch. That's where schoolteacher Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) finds herself one less-than-fine morning, after a night of karaoke and beer and shots leads to a midnight drive with a passenger who pays her fare by offering free crack. When she wakes up, Kate has no idea where she is, where her car is. All she knows is that sometime the night before, they both sustained significant damage (a sense of fear, confusion and dislocation nicely suggested by director James Ponsoldt, who has a knack for vivid context)

DEAR ABBY: My wife, "Kate," and her sister, "Judy," do not get along, to the point that my wife refuses to be in the same room with her. I have a class reunion coming up, and Judy is in my class. Because we're not sure Judy will show up, Kate has said she will attend - but she'll leave if Judy arrives. We had planned on going in separate cars so Kate could escape if necessary. But now she says if Judy puts in an appearance, she'll be upset with me if I don't leave with her. I don't get along with Judy either, but I'd like the chance to catch up with other classmates.

Talk about trust. Back in March 2001, Deb Feerrar answered a phone call from her husband. She was in northern Virginia, where the family had been living for several years. He was in Moorestown and had just looked at a rancher in a sizzling-hot real estate market. "I think you'll like it," he told her as he described the large lot and the simple charms of the 1960s dwelling. And with that, the couple bought a house one of them had never seen. There was some urgency to their decision.

Gold By Chris Cleave Simon & Schuster. 336 pp. $27 Reviewed by Steven Rea In track cycling, individual pursuit is simple: Two riders position themselves at opposite ends of the circuit, the gun goes off, and they ride counterclockwise, chasing each other down. For Kate Meadows and Zoe Castle, the dual — and dueling — heroines of Chris Cleave's perfectly timed and engaging third novel, Gold, starting at opposite ends isn't just something they do in their roles as Britain's top female speed cyclists.

It took five months and 2,200 miles, but siblings Kate and Brandon Imp and their sidekick Emily Ginger - a.k.a. the Ringleader, Monkey, and Lightning - hiked the length of the Appalachian Trail in 2010. It's taking a similar sort of determination to make and promote Beauty Beneath the Dirt , Kate's feature film of their adventure. "I've probably put in thousands of hours on this," says Kate, 26, a lawyer in Chicago. "And that's not counting the hike. " The executive producer/director and her brother will be back home in Burlington County this weekend for two screenings, part of a two-month series of 50 buzz-building presentations in theaters and other venues on or near "the AT" between Georgia and Maine.

When Chloe Winters celebrated her 11th birthday, no biggie. Turning 10½, however, required a blowout bash. The half-birthday custom is five years going for the Montgomery County tween - with a July 9 birthday, it's a tradition based on practicality, says her mom, Kate. "It's usually the holiday week and no one's ever around, school's out, everyone's at the Shore or at camp," Kate said. "Birthdays are special and they should be celebrated. " Chloe loves the arrangement - and so do a growing number of birthday boys and girls.

The princess is pregnant! While the news is tinged with some anxiety, given that poor Kate has this form of extreme morning sickness, we'll all keep that stiff British upper lip and hope for the best. Pregnancy is the great female leveler. It's an experience only half of humankind can know firsthand. Modern science and social leaps aside, it's women's work. For princesses and for paupers. Among those of us who have birthed babies, there's a sisterhood that's wide and vast and deep and humbling - and somehow still impossible to explain.

This is a different sort of Kate Winslet than we've come to expect. In Labor Day - a romance, a drama, and a woman's fantasy of what men, perhaps, should be - the British actress plays Adele Wheeler, a fragile, frightened single mother too wary of the outside world to even get in the car and drive to the market. The year is 1987, the place a small New Hampshire town. Adele's 13-year-old boy (a very good Gattlin Griffith ) has assumed many of the domestic responsibilities.

J   USTIN BIEBER. You are so not taking my niece to the prom in nine years. Why such a future rejection, you ask, oh, once-sweet pop star? I'll be honest. It was yesterday morning's drunken/stoned/stupid/stupor arrest in Miami Beach for drag racing. And resisting arrest. And DUI (that you admitted). And dropping F-bombs to cops like they were "Yes, sirs. " And driving with an expired Georgia license (06/24/2013, to be precise). Also, the way you rolled up the sleeves of your red prison shirt.

SUPER-DUPER model Kate Upton was in Philadelphia this weekend with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Detroit Tiger Justin Verlander , who was in town for core-muscle surgery last week. I hear that on Friday the duo hit up the Melting Pot (1219 Filbert St.) and on Saturday they chose Del Frisco's (1426-28 Chestnut St.). My tipster says that Upton and Verlander and three others sat in the mezzanine and that she kept it low-key, opting for not much makeup. Many people dining near her didn't even recognize her. I hear Upton and party dined on the calamari and the cheesesteak dumplings, as well as a bottle of cab that got dropped off at the table.
