Is the real world ready for Jessica Darling?

At first it seems that she's living the elusive New York City dream. She's subletting an apartment with her best friend, Hope, working for a magazine that actually utilizes her psychology degree, and still deeply in love with Marcus Flutie, the charismatic addict-turned-Buddhist who first captivated her at 16.

Of course, reality is more complicated than dreamy clichés. She and Hope share bunk beds in the Cupcake - the girlie pastel bedroom normally occupied by 12-year-old twins. Their Brooklyn neighborhood is better suited to breeders, and she and Hope split the rent with their promiscuous high-school pal, Manda, and her genderqueer boifriend.

Freelancing for an obscure journal can't put a dent in Jessica's student loans, so she's eking out a living by babysitting her young niece and lamenting that she, unlike most of her friends, can't postpone adulthood by going back to school.

Yet it's the ever-changing relationship with Marcus that leaves her most unsettled. At the ripe age of 23, he's just starting his freshman year at Princeton University. Is she ready to give up her imperfect yet invigorating post-college life just because her on-again/off-again soul mate asks her to marry him?

Jessica has one week to respond to Marcus's perplexing marriage proposal. During this time, she gains surprising wisdom from unexpected sources, including a popular talk show shrink, a drag queen named Royalle G. Biv, and yes, even her parents. But the most shocking confession concerns two people she thought had nothing to hide: Hope and Marcus. Download and start listening now!

    " It was ok not as good as the first and second books. "

    " My sister and I agree that McCafferty should have stopped after the second book in this series. Her charm is her ironic use of modern superficiality, but this has become so redundant that the plot often seems lost in sarcastic cliches. That said, I am consistently impressed by the characters' realistic reactions to nuanced situations, redeeming McCafferty from a pending reputation as a witty author of chick-lit. She could put her talents to better uses. "

    " I liked this book, but I think I would have liked it more had I realized that it was the fourth book in a series and, I don't know, maybe read the first three first ;) "
