This book is much more than i expected. What I expected was a chick lit, a cheesy story of a teenager and her ramblings about boys.
But this is a coming of age story.
Jess is a stressed teenager whose best friend has just moved away and whose parents try to make her be something she is not. She tries to mold herself into being what everybody expects from her in order to fit in until a junkie guy, Marcus Flutie, makes her realize her priorities in life.
I liked this book for various reasons: first, even though i'm 34 and therefore well past my teenage years, Jess is a character i could easily relate too. She is an interesting, brainiac and very opinionated girl. The language was a plus as well. I am not a notive speaker and i enjoyed the slang used in the book. Finally she is funny, i nearly rolled down the couch when ,accused of being a lesbo, Jess replies: "Me?! A vagitarian??". I will read the next installment, curious to see what happens next.
