Jessica Darling’s in college!

Things are looking up for Jessica Darling. She has finally left her New Jersey hometown/hellhole for Columbia University in New York City; she’s more into her boyfriend, Marcus Flutie, than ever (so what if he’s at a Buddhist college in California?); and she’s making new friends who just might qualify as stand-ins for her beloved best friend, Hope.

But Jessica soon realizes that her bliss might not last. She lands an internship at a snarky Brooklyn-based magazine, but will she fit in with the überhip staff (and will she even want to)? As she and Marcus hit the rocks, will she end up falling for her GOPunk, neoconservative RA . . . or the hot (and married!) Spanish grad student she’s assisting on a summer project . . . or the oh-so-sensitive emo boy down the hall? Will she even make it through college now that her parents have cut her off financially? And what do the cryptic one-word postcards from Marcus really mean? 

With hilarious insight, the hyperobservant Jessica Darling struggles through her college years—and the summers in between—while maintaining her usual mix of wit, cynicism, and candor.

    " Ah, I love Jessica. I'm probably going to have to go back and read the first two in the series, but I enjoyed Jess's ups and downs, confusion and frustration. I sympathize with her in the boy department as well. However, her outlook on school annoys me slightly, due to her whiney entries on her Ivey league education lamenting about how she doesn't know what to do with her life. Like really, her parents readily dropped a hundred grand on her schooling, you'd think she'd major in something she was seriously considering as a living. Alas, she is only a character. And the ever evasive Marcus keeps the reader wondering if they'll stay together or if he's going to be kicked to the curb. Jess's wit and snark makes me giggle; I hope to pick up book 4. "

    " Fabulous. Megan McCafferty is fabulous. I like that the books get more complex as the characters get older. "

    " I'd actually give this a 2.5. Not my favourite of the series, so far. But I'll keep reading, if for no other reason than wanting to see what happens. "

    " I sort of wanted to slap Jessica in this one, but it was still really good. "
