I posted a short review of the first book in this series, and now I'll post a short review of the series as a whole.

I've read nearly everything that Meg Cabot has written. While some parts of this series were familiar to me as a Cabot fan (the tough heroine, ready with a punch, the parents that simply don't understand), this series was a real departure from her norm.

In her blog, Cabot has written that 9/11 never happened in Mia's world (the heroine of the Princess Diaries). 9/11 did happen here--and so did the war in Afghanistan, if not in Iraq. Unlike her other works, Cabot confronts real issues and real life problems in this book--internet predators, porn, post traumatic stress syndrome. Jess' brother has schizophrenia, and this series could be said to be about his recovery as much as Jess'. These real problems make the stakes in Jess' life seem even more powerful.

I would highly recommend this book to any Cabot fan that would like to see her stretch beyond what's familiar.
