Summary: Jessica Darling is back in this second installment of her journals. The book begins while Jessica is at a Summer Camp in New York City called "SPECIAL". She then begins her senior year at highschool. Where Marcus Flutie is still there being, well, Marcus Flutie. And Marcus isn't the only annoying thing happening right now.

In other words, Jessica's life is one big ball of chaos.
Cover Rating: 3/5
Comments on the Cover: I'm not a fan. It seems more of an advertisement against depression or an eating disorder.
Character Comments: The characters are just too funny. Jessica's so cynical it's amusing. And Marcus, please don't get me started on Marcus. Meh, I'll start anyway. I LOVE THE MAN. And Len Levy. Ungh. I love nerdy guys <33
Favorite Character: Marus, Jessica, Bridget and Len
Character Rating: 5/5

  1. Your link to the previous book links back to the cover image for this one... I assume from the title that's the first book in this series?
