Waiting on Wednesday: Jessica Darling's It List #1

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Jessica Darling's It List #1: The (Totally Not) Guaranteed Guide to Popularity, Prettiness & Perfection 
by Megan McCafferty
Expected publication date: September 3, 2013
Published by Poppy  

There isn't an official synopsis yet,  but I couldn't contain my excitement and just had to share this asap! Megan McCafferty has given us a little bit info on her website from her post New Year, New Book. Jessica and Marcus and Hope in junior high. It's going to be a ton of fun. I just know it!

(from Amazon)

Jessica Darling wasn't nervous about starting Pineville Junior High. That is, until her older sister, Bethany, told her that entering seventh grade means that everything will change. Hoping to continue the "Darling Domination of Popularity," Bethany presents Jessica with The IT List: The Guaranteed Guide to Popularity, Prettiness & Perfection.

But even armed with her instructions, Jessica stumbles her way through the start of the school year and inadvertently becomes Pineville Junior High's mascot, the mighty New Jersey seagull. Totally not the type of attention-getting her sister had in mind.

New York Times bestselling author Megan McCafferty's hilarious series opener will have you laughing, cringing, and cheering for the inimitable Jessica Darling.


  1. I haven't heard of this one before, but it sounds good. And I love those type of books :-)
    My WoW

  2. Oh my! Now I really need to hurry and finish the original series, don't I?

  3. Oh my gosh! I had no idea the book already had a cover AND a synopsis. Thanks so much for sharing! I cannot wait for this one :)

  4. It sounds interesting. I'm not really a middle reader kinda girl but I have some questions after reading that blurb. Like, what's up with their mascots? Nice pick.


  5. I read the first one of this series and really loved it! I'm interested to see how this one turns out! Great pick :)

    Here's my WoW!

  6. It makes me so happy that most of you are already familiar with this series. The Jessica Darling books are my favorite series and Second Helpings in one of my top 5 favorite books of all time.

    Thank you all for stopping by and your comments.

  7. I'm thrilled that the Jessica Darling series is being continued but am a little sad that it's with a middle grade book. I don't follow that at all. I might try and pick it up just because of how much I loved the original series but we'll see. Good pick though :)
