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.From the Hardcover edition.

Marcus may be sorry for taking two years to get his head on right, but Jessica is sorrier for making astonishingly bad dec...
Unlike Sloppy Firsts and Second Helpings, Charmed Thirds took place over the span of four years in Jessica's life. As a result, a lot of events in Jessica's life were glossed over, and the emotional impacts of her actions weren't quite as prevalent as in the first two installments.While Jessica's vo...
I was a little worried to start this one. My interest in the relationship of Jessica and Marcus is why I’ve enjoyed these books. When I read the back of this book I was afraid things between Jessica and Marcus would get really bad. As I predicted, I didn’t like this one as much as the last two. It’s...

I know a lot of people love Jessica Darling, but it's just not the series for me. After Jessica talks about Former Miss America Vanessa Williams and calls her photo scandal "creepy lesbo photos" (twice!) and mocks the runner-up from New Jersey who apparently "really let herself go" and "chunked up a...
