  • 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).

  • "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).

  • "Trust me, you'll adore Jessica Darling ten different ways." (E. Lockhart, author of The Boyfriend List and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks).
