Knowing that I ve just done something that will take decades off my parents lives with worry, you ll excuse me for not getting into the fa-la-la-la-la Yuletide spirit this year. . . . The only difference between Christmas 2001 and Christmas 2000 is that I don t have a visit from Hope to look forward to. And Bethany has already packed on some major fetal flab. Oh, and now Gladdie doesn t need to ask a bizillion questions about my boyfriend, because she s already gotten the dirt from you know who. Jessica Darling is up in arms again in this much-anticipated, hilarious sequel to Sloppy Firsts. This time, the hyperobservant, angst-ridden teenager is going through the social and emotional ordeal of her senior year at Pineville High. Not only does the mysterious and oh-so-compelling Marcus Flutie continue to distract Jessica, but her best friend, Hope, still lives in another state, and she can t seem to escape the clutches of the Clueless Crew, her annoying so-called friends. To top it off, Jessica s parents won t get off her butt about choosing a college, and her sister Bethany s pregnancy is causing a big stir in the Darling household. With keen intelligence, sardonic wit, and ingenious comedic timing, Megan McCafferty again re-creates the tumultuous world of today s fast-moving and sophisticated teens. Fans of Sloppy Firsts will be reunited with their favorite characters and also introduced to the fresh new faces that have entered Jess s life, including the hot creative writing teacher at her summer college prep program and her feisty, tell-it-like-it-is grandmother Gladdie. But most of all, readers will finally have the answers to all of their burgeoning questions, and then some: Will Jessica crack under the pressure of senioritis? Will her unresolved feelings for Marcus wreak havoc on her love life? Will Hope ever come back to Pineville? Fall in love with saucy, irreverent Jessica all over again in this wonderful sequel to a book that critics and readers alike hailed as the best high school novel in years."

Reviews

Praise for The Jessica Darling Series "Such a sharp, funny, poignant heroine, with an inner world we can all relate to. I love it." --Sophie Kinsella, author of the New York Times bestselling Shopaholic series "Megan McCafferty rocks! Her sharp wit and keen satirical eye make her books automatic must-reads." --Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series and Size 12 Is Not Fat "Jessica is a captivating, intelligent, acidly funny-but always believably adolescent-narrator who is unsparing in her sketches of Pineville High 'society' yet touchingly alive to her own vulnerabilities. Though the happy ending seems targeted to a YA crowd, adults will also enjoy Jessica's winning observations." --Publisher's Weekly "Judy Blume meets Dorothy Parker." --Wall Street Journal "McCafferty looks at travails with humor as well as heart." --People
