VIRTUAL EVENT: Megan McCafferty with Rebecca Serle
Thank you for tuning into our virtual event celebrating the relaunch of one of our manager Sarah's favorite series, the Jessica Darling books by Megan McCafferty! If you missed the live stream, you can still watch the video HERE! Purchases of Sloppy Firsts will include a signed book plate!
I am SO excited that the book series that defined my high school years in the very early aughts is back for new readers to enjoy! It's perfect for both contemporary YA lovers and nostalgic millennials. Jessica is one of my favorite literary protagonists and Sloppy Firsts my favorite epistolary novel. It's a realistic look at high school life and highlights the importance of female friendships!
I really enjoyed this novel and it made me laugh and cry. Our story is about two women, Dannie and her best friend Bella who grew up together in two very different households. Dannie is a highly motivated corporate lawayer with a life plan and knows she will marry her longtime boyfriend David. Whereas Bella, is not a planner, and moves through life to the beat of her own drum and jumps from one relationship to the next until she meets Aaron Gregory. However, fate has different plans for both Bella and Dannie. Ultimately, the story is about love and frienship between two women.
