This Spring, Jessica’s Story Comes Full-Circle
Old flames are reignited in this eagerly awaited fifth and final book in the Jessica Darling series. Captivated readers have followed her through every step and misstep, from a tormented, tart-tongued teenager, to a college grad stumbling toward adulthood. Now a young professional in her mid-twenties, Jess is off to a Caribbean wedding. [SPOILER ALERT! Proceed with caution if you haven't read Fourth Comings.] As she rushes to her gate at the airport, she literally runs into her former boyfriend, Marcus Flutie. It’s the first time she’s seen him since she reluctantly turned down his marriage proposal three years earlier—and emotions run high. Marcus and Jessica have both changed dramatically, yet their connection feels as familiar as ever. Is their reunion just a fluke or has fate orchestrated this collision of their lives once again? Partly told from Marcus’s point of view, Perfect Fifths finally lets readers inside the mind of the only person who’s both troubled and titillated Jessica Darling for years. Expect nothing less than the satisfying conclusion fans have been waiting for, one perfect in its imperfection.That's all I could find on this on, but, hello? It's Megan McCafferty's final book in the Jessica Darling series. How is it not a book you aren't waiting for? Jessica Darling is like the average, of averages of teen girls out there who grow up and normal life and have a mysterious love life with someone named Marcus. Well, okay, not that last part. Not everybody has a mysterious love life, especially with someone named Marcus Flutie, but, you know what I mean. I just wish I read these books closer to when they first came out, besides the fact that I would of been in like first or second grade when Sloppy Firsts came out in . . . 2001 I think. But still. You can learn a lot from Jessica. Anyway, you can obviously tell I am in love with these books, so yeah. Perfect Fifths is on my list to pre-order.
