Oh, Jessica. You always make any book with a B-plot concerning you that much better. This time she's making big, ugly, 80's jewelry and naturally she manages to overspend like crazy.

Jeffrey reminds us he has more depth than he's given credit for by standing up to Liz. A lot. Weird considering that when looking back on Liz's big loves, Jeffrey is always seen as her yes-man, but the boy never seems to have any problem telling her when to stop being so judgmental.
