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.
