Sloppy First by Megan Mccafferty is about a hyper-observent teen trying to survive high school without her best friend Hope. Hope has just moved to Tennessee after her brother's overdose when we meet Jessica Darling. Jessica is a track star, with a crush to end all crushes on the senior captain who doesn't even know she's alive. And Scotty, her first boyfriend of 11 days in eighth grade, still likes her, and everyone thinks she should so totally go out with him. And to make things worse, her sister Bethany is getting married, and her mother is in wedding overdrive. As she writes about life, love (or lack there of) and poseurs, you find yourself laughing along with Jessica and feeling her sorrows. This book is extremely funny and a must read for teens. Also check out the rest of the series: Second Helpings, Charming Thirds and Fourth Comings. Perfect Fifths, the final book in the series, is coming out in April.
