This book is about a girl named Jessica "Not-So" Darling and her teenage drama filled life in Pineville, New Jersey. Jessica's best friend, Hope, just moved and now she only has the "Clueless Crue" to spend time with at school. There's also Scotty, her ex boyfriend from middle school, that still has feelings for her (even though he doesn't know that she knows!) but she doesn't like him like that. Then a new girl comes to town, and she feels like they could actually become friends. And then there's Marcus Flutie, who's suddenly talking to her.

I loved this book! At the beginning I thought it was going to be this "girl whines, oh her life is so bad, blah, blah" book. But it wasn't really like that. It was so much fun to read! I was exited when I had to sit down and open the pages of this book.

The book is told entirely from Jessica's point of view and it's her journal we're reading. And each chapter is a month, from January to December and the days in between.

Jessica is such a teenager girl. But she's not a popular girl or a "plastic girl". Jessica is more of a worrier and is a little depressed.
She likes to run and write in her journal. But please, do not take her shopping or have any type of girly conversations, she hates that.

I loved the relationship between her and Hope. Even though we only get to know Hope through one way letters that Jessica writes to her, you can see how deep and meaningful their friendship is. You get to really connect and understand Jessica and you just want to help her out, or at least, keep reading what's going on with her.

Of course, there's the romantic interest. In this case is Marcus. He's the bad boy-drug using-hooks up with a lot of girls- guy. And this will make you happy. It isn't "insta-love". It grows slowly, normally, and man, how happy I was because of that.

The book was so much fun to read. I can't wait to read the second book and see what else Jessica is going through. I will get the rest of the series. Do I recommend it? You bet! Get your copy and join Jessica and her crazy life!

Why, why WHY! Did I not read this book in 2001 when it was released!? I was 15 then and I would have absolutely worshiped Jessica Darling! I would've wanted to follow in all of her footsteps, even the mortifying ones. I would have wished that Jessica were real so she could be my best friend! Even now, at 24, I kinda worship her.

She is completely misunderstood by most of her peers. She's full of angst and snarky opinions. She's depressed, angry and lonely. She's a teenager! I loved every second of it! The book is told in Jessica's diary entries, so you get a completely uncensored look at her day to day life. She has a love hate relationship with everyone, including herself. Her cynical outlook on the world was something I connected to right away! And her observations and opinions will have you laughing nonstop!

This was a very fast read. Once I got used to Jessica's voice, I was unable to put the book down. I had to know what completely insane things she was going to do next, and once Marcus Flutie was introduced I couldn't get enough. Marcus Flutie is the complete opposite of Jessica. He's the ultimate bad boy...turned good guy. The tension between the two had me shouting inappropriate things like "JUST DO IT!!!" at the book. I was just a tiny bit obsessed with Marcus, just like Jessica, and I NEED to live vicariously through her...

One other thing I LOVED about the book is that it takes place in 2000. Jessica is just a couple of years older than me, so all the pop culture things that are mentioned are things from my teenagedom too!! I was just a tad bit obsessed with BSB back in the day and they are mentioned a lot! Along with funny Real World tidbits like Ruthie being an alkie! (Do you remember that one?)

All in all I just LOVED the book!! So much so that when I finished it I started reading Second Helpings right after, even though I had a ton of review books to read! So, READ THIS SERIES! But be warned it is highly addictive!

Since I had to explain to my wife that my latest reading excursion was not in fact a between-the-sheets adventure with multiple terms for male and female genitalia, I might have reached my erotica novel quota for the month of May and possibly June as well. In case you haven’t already figured it out, this is not erotica, nor is it even classified as romance. But I was romantically involved with it all the same. SLOPPY FIRSTS punched my two front teeth out and slapped me hard on the cheek. It lifted my feet six inches off the ground, and turned me upside down. Had I managed to offer the world a coherent thought or two, I probably would have followed it up with a giggle.

Jessica Darling might have been the greatest thing to happen to my otherwise miserable existence. She actually made me happy to be alive, and I even managed to smile for once in my dejected life. She made me want to attempt night running and swoon over poetry and wander the hallowed halls of my youth aimlessly and have crushes on Spanish teachers and pretend that I had a big sister named Bethany who was so full of herself that her head was a ticking time bomb and run through malls…and yes, it really was that flipping good.

The voice was filled with sardonic poetry and wisdom and wit and charm, and she sounded older than she really was, even if her body had the developed pace of a kindergartner. Whether it was Burke or Bridget or Marcus or Manda or Sara, I was hooked, lined, and snickered, and I found myself reeling in a big mouth bass.

Whether I actually did or not is hard to say, but I found myself bouncing along the halls with my head held high and my corduroys on rye and a picture perfect wave across the sky helping me find my way home.

If I really stop to think about it, I probably shouldn’t have fallen in love with this novel, but you can’t always choose what books you love, and in this case, I tried to say no, but I ended up saying yes. Over and over and over again.
