Selection tool selecting the wrong text boxes / Text box is apparently larger than the bounding box?

I am working on creating text-heavy PDFs/ebooks and for some reason my Selection Tool for text boxes isn't working. 

 

I can click each text box individually, but if I go to drag my mouse to select multiple objects, it selects textboxes that aren't even close to the objects I'm selecting. 

Below is a screenshot and here is a screen recording: https://www.dropbox.com/s/c7idgy7gaz9pwln/AdobeIllustrator%20-%20Selection%20Tool%20Problem.mov?dl=0

Could some text boxes on the left be grouped with those at the right page?

Any empty text frames? I think that's the case. Stop at 14" and the the large frame shows a widget center right of a Type area  text frame.

Select View>Outlines to see all frames.
