summerhippee Deming

Jessica Darling is devistated when her best friend, Hope, moves away. Jessica doesn’t fit in at school, the guy she likes doesn’t even know she excitsts and she doesn’t fit in at home, with her dad who only talks to her when it has to do with her track meets. With Hope gone Jessica feels like nothing, just nothing. But Jessica is thrown for a loop when Marcus Flutie, known as a “Dreg” at school suddenly takes intrest in her. Jessica soon finds herself taking a false pee test and spending more time with strange but compelling Marcus.
This book started out really slow and kind of depressing but as soon as Marcus enters the picture the book really heated up. This is the first in five books and I am un-clear if McCafferty is planning on writing more or if there are only going to be five. I can’t wait to read the next one.
