There are no guarantees of success in this world, not even for those whose lives are as charmed as yours. So have fun now! Do it! Put down the books! Have sex! Drink too much beer! Do something stupid while you’re still young enough to chalk it up to blissful ignorance!
-Jessica Darling, Charmed Thirds
If you haven't read this series already, I highly recommend it. No, actually I require you read it. In the era when most teenage protagonists in novels are either chasing designer shoes or glittery guys, Megan McCafferty has created one of the most witty, thoughtful and constantly questioning heroines in teenage student Jessica Darling. As far as I'm concerned, Miss Darling is my literary soul sister.
You'll love her, I promise.
Love to you all,
