Jessica Darling is getting the hang of seventh grade -- finally! While her old BFF, Bridget, is busy talking (nonstop) about her new boyfriend, Burke, Jessica tries to fit in with her new friends, Sara, Manda, and Hope. The IT List instructions from her sister, Bethany, and an epic slumber party may help Jessica secure her spot in the cool clique, but does she even want it?
Megan McCafferty's It List series introduces readers to Jessica Darling, an unabashedly brainy seventh grader who stays true to herself, even if it means being (totally not) cool.
Why I'm Waiting
- Jessica Darling is one of my favorite characters ever. I loved reading about Jessica during her older teen years and as an adult. Jessica as a pre-teen is just as funny.
- I'm reading this series with my niece who is the same age/grade as Jessica. I hope that she will love this series as much as I do.
- I want to know more about Jessica's friendship with Hope. It was just beginning in book 1.
- "An epic slumber party" - 7th grade slumber parties can make or break you!
