This book is the third in the series chronicling Jessica Darling's life in college. Don't be fooled by the girlie cover. I highly recommend the first two books Sloppy Firsts and Second Helpings. Jessica is sharp, witty, and immensely likable. She goes through the ups and downs of Columbia's college life including money issues, different relationships, and worrying what she'll do with the rest of her life. It can seem quite long at times, and yet face paced. Over the course of the book, about two or three years go by. It can be a bit dull but I love all the different characters. They're so relatable. Yes, everyone has a 'Sara' in their life. One who always says 'omigod' and will not stop blabbing on about useless gossip. The ending is satisfying and I really enjoyed it.
Thumbs Up.
