I hadn't even gotten to homeroom yet and I'd already discovered five hard truths about junior high:
1. My best friend had turned pretty. 2. She didn't know it yet. 3. It wouldn't be long before she did. 4. That knowledge would change everything between us. 5. And there wasn't a thing I could do about it.
It's the first day of seventh grade. Is Jessica Darling doomed for dorkdom?
New York Times bestselling author Megan McCafferty's hilarious new novel will have you laughing, cringing, and cheering for Jessica Darling as she learns that being herself beats being popular, pretty & perfect any day.
"Jessica is a winning heroine, and as she stumbles and fumbles (and literally falls flat on her face), readers will laugh alongside her and, yes, cheer as she comes into her authentic self."
"I loved meeting Megan McCafferty's hilarious and irrepressible Jessica Darling in Sloppy Firsts. Now, I'm thrilled to turn back the clock and watch her navigate the highs and lows of seventh grade. I laughed and cheered for her and so will you."
—Wendy Mass, New York Times bestselling author of The Candymakers and 13 Gifts
