I'm liking this series, but not for the usual reason of Marcus Flutie. Honestly, he ticks me off. But I completely empathize with Jessica on so many things. I swear, I've had the same thoughts and feelings about the same topics! I'm nowhere near as Ivy-smart as she is, but I have been there when it comes to trying to relate to your parents when you have nothing intellectually in common. And the job prospect angst--oh yeah, every time DH's job moves us around. There was one spot where she talks about applying to correspondence school for gun cleaning, and I swear I laughed out loud because I have often lamented my lack of "practical" skills! I can discuss Michel Foucault's take on punishment in society, but as for marketable skills, I am somewhat lacking. Fortunately, I have been able to roll with what life has thrown at me (for the most part) and picked up a few of those real world skills along the way, and I hope that the same will be true for Jessica in future books. Looking forward to picking up Fourth Comings tomorrow at the library.
