Praise

* "This latest installment in the perils of Pineville Junior High can be described in just the same way as describing its title character: hilarious, sweet, and smart. This is a fun but not fluffy book; instead it provides some insightful truths about the heartbreaks of growing up, while maintaining a wicked sense of humor."—VOYA (starred review)
"Razor-sharp writing, witty dialogue, and the genuineness of Jessica's struggles make this a sure bet for tween readers."—Booklist
"McCafferty knows her way around this age group; her depictions are pitch-perfect and will loudly resonate with girls facing their own friends and foes."—Kirkus Reviews
"Jessica Darling is starting seventh grade, trying her best to navigate changing friendships and the mysteries of boys -- with cringe-worthy embarrassments at every turn. A good series for tweens who have made their way through Dork Diaries but are not quite ready for Gossip Girl."—School Library Journal
Praise for Jessica Darling's It List:
"Readers meeting Jessica for the first time will be charmed by this authentic and funny girl who makes well-tread territory feel as new as a pair of first-day-of-school sneakers."—Publishers Weekly
"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."—Booklist
"Brief characterizations of teachers and students are often humorously spot-on, and rules, such as those for cutting lines, fully capture the junior high social scene in all its often distressing ignominy."—Kirkus Reviews
"Told in the hilariously authentic voice of a preteen girl, this book will have readers laughing out loud at Jessica's high jinks, especially her disastrous stint as the school's mascot."—School Library Journal
"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
"If I had to do seventh grade all over again, there's nobody I'd rather have by my side than Jessica Darling. She's funny, winning, and completely relatable, and it's impossible not to root for her through all her misadventures. I'm already excited to find out what the next chapter of her story might bring!"—Jennifer E. Smith, author of This is What Happy Looks Like, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, and The Storm Makers
"My long-lost friend Jessica Darling is back! I feel so lucky to have a peek into her middle school years in Megan McCafferty's sparkly new series. How I've missed you so, Jessica Darling!"—Jenny Han, New York Times bestselling author of the Summer series and Shug
