Recommended to Lori by: teens, people who were teens, those who do not suffer fools glad

I hope I don't kill the love for this series by admitting that I am a middle aged woman who loves it. Although Jessica Darling is less than half my age, I would have loved to be friends with her in high school...or even now. How pathetic is that?

Not very, actually. Jessica is an acerbic, rapier witted narratrix. The picture she paints of a New Jersey high school soon after the millennium change is at turnes hilarious, depressing and ridiculous...just like my memories of high school.

I started this series back when I was a librarian for teenagers...and had a solid excuse. Now I have none. But I am going to keep reading these anyway. If Jessica continues to balance the snark and the insights in her own special way, I am a fan for life and will follow her adventures into the nursing home, if possible.
