I know I'm supposed to be reading Newbery Medal books right now, and I am - I just finished Holes, and started The View From Saturday - but I also love the Jessica Darling books by NY Times Bestselling Author, Megan McCafferty. Her prose and characters are witty and intelligent, and the storyline is one that almost every teenager and adult who used to be a teenager can relate to.
I read the first book, Sloppy Firsts awhile back, but I need to get over to the library to check out Second Helpings and then the remainder of the series. The fifth book just came out so I have some reading to do. Go to her website (the link is above) and check out her (retro)blog where she posts excerpts from her diary from when she was a teenager - hilarious!
