Jessica Darling’s in college!

Things are looking up for Jessica Darling. She has finally left her New Jersey hometown/hellhole for Columbia University in New York City; she’s more into her boyfriend, Marcus Flutie, than ever (so what if he’s at a Buddhist college in California?); and she’s making new friends who just might qualify as stand-ins for her beloved best friend, Hope.

But Jessica soon realizes that her bliss might not last. She lands an internship at a snarky Brooklyn-based magazine, but will she fit in with the überhip staff (and will she even want to)? As she and Marcus hit the rocks, will she end up falling for her GOPunk, neoconservative RA . . . or the hot (and married!) Spanish grad student she’s assisting on a summer project . . . or the oh-so-sensitive emo boy down the hall? Will she even make it through college now that her parents have cut her off financially? And what do the cryptic one-word postcards from Marcus really mean?

With hilarious insight, the hyperobservant Jessica Darling struggles through her college years—and the summers in between—while maintaining her usual mix of wit, cynicism, and candor.

From the Hardcover edition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Roller-coaster ride Jessica, now in college, continues on her introspective assessment of life. Like most college students, she seems obsessively self-centered so much so that I thought more than once that for someone so intelligent, she seems so unbelievably stupid. There were times that I felt she really needed a good smack to the side of her head. Thank goodness for some honest insight from her friend Bridget which I never thought I would say. Not as good as books 1 & 2 mostly because (fingers crossed) college is a frustrating time. I'm hopeful for book 4 though. Hopefully those annoying years are behind darling Jessica.
