Jessica Darling continues to grow, groove, lust, and hook up. In this witty follow-up to Sloppy Firsts and Second Helpings, Jessie studies and romps through three years at New York's Columbia University. When not soaking up Ivy League ambience, this exuberant undergraduate is busy salvaging her long-distance relationship with her high school boyfriend Marcus Flutie, now a candidate for nirvana at an unaccredited Buddhist college in California. As usual, Jessie's perceptions are somewhat less ethereal but probably more interesting to readers. A stylish teen funfest.

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...
