really liked it
bookshelves: 2012, young-adult

I wasn't sure about this at first-seemed like the standard too-clever-by-half teen making snarky judgements on everyone around her. I was glad I stayed with it to see that this character has more to her than that, and that this wasn't just the fluffy read I expected it to be. The realizations Jessica reaches don't come easily and there's no triteness to her growth and the promise of more growth in future volumes. The transformations come across very naturally and realistically, from her relationship with her mother to her relationships with people she had written off with an easy sarcastic label. Jessica is still "notso" Darling, but by the end of this book, she'd worked her way into my affections.
