Second Helpings continues Megan McCafferty's New York Times bestselling series - now with a new foreword by New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Serle
Jessica Darling is in her senior year of high school and things can’t seem to get worse: her best friend, Hope, still lives in another state, and the mysterious and oh-so-compelling Marcus Flutie continues to be a distraction she doesn’t need. Not to mention her parents won’t get off her back about choosing a college, and her older sister’s pregnancy is causing quite a bit of drama in the Darling household.
The second book in Megan McCafferty’s critically acclaimed Jessica Darling series is fun, irreverent, and shows that being a teenager is never easy (or boring). Now with a foreword from New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Serle and a new author's note from Megan McCafferty!
About the Author
MEGAN MCCAFFERTY writes fiction for tweens, teens and teens-at-heart of all ages. The author of over ten novels, she’s best known for Sloppy Firsts and four more books in the New York Times bestselling Jessica Darling series. Described in her first review as “Judy Blume meets Dorothy Parker” (Wall Street Journal), she’s been trying to live up to that high standard ever since.
Praise for the Jessica Darling series:
"Alongside Meg Cabot’s novels and the Gossip Girl series, I can’t think of a series more formative to the turn of the millennium YA!" —Book Riot
“Judy Blume meets Dorothy Parker.” —Wall Street Journal
"Smart, tentative, and funny, Jessica is a likable and wry observer of the competitive, gossipy high-school world.”—Booklist on Second Helpings
“McCafferty looks at travails with humor as well as heart.” —People on Second Helpings
“McCafferty writes strong characters with rich, believable inner lives.”—Publishers Weekly on Perfect Fifths
“Megan McCafferty rocks! Her sharp wit and keen satirical eye make her books automatic must-reads.” —Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series and Size 12 Is Not Fat
“Such a sharp, funny, poignant heroine, with an inner world we can all relate to. I love it.” —Sophie Kinsella, author of the New York Times bestselling Shopaholic series on Sloppy Firsts
“Megan McCafferty puts Jessica Darling through college in Charmed Thirds, and in the process turns her from a tart-tongued New Jersey high school philosopher into a heart-wrenching representation of all things uncertain. If she’s not careful, she might end up with a heroine for our times.” —Ned Vizzini, author of Be More Chill and It’s Kind of a Funny Story
“Charmed Thirds is a witty, biting, and altogether true accounting of a girl’s journey to young womanhood, complete with all of the cringe-inducing, hilarious moments of love, shame, and uncertainty that readers will remember from their own lives.” —Jennifer Weiner, author of Goodnight Nobody and Good in Bed
