Is the real world ready for Jessica Darling?At first it seems that she's living the elusive New York City dream. She's subletting an apartment with her best friend, Hope, working for a magazine that actually utilizes her psychology degree, and still deeply in love with Marcus Flutie, the charismatic addict-turned-Buddhist who first captivated her at sixteen.Of course, reality is more complicated than dreamy clichés. She and Hope share bunk beds in the "Cupcake" - the girlie pastel bedroom normally occupied by twelve-year-old twins. Their Brooklyn neighborhood is better suited to "breeders," and she and Hope split the rent with their promiscuous high school pal, Manda, and her "genderqueer boifriend." Freelancing for an obscure journal can't put a dent in Jessica's student loans, so she's eking out a living by babysitting her young niece and lamenting that she, unlike most of her friends, can't postpone adulthood by going back to school.Yet it's the ever-changing relationship with Marcus that leaves her most unsettled. At the ripe age of twenty-three, he's just starting his freshman year at Princeton University. Is she ready to give up her imperfect yet invigorating post-college life just because her on-again/off-again soul mate asks her to...marry him?Jessica has one week to respond to Marcus's perplexing marriage proposal. During this time, she gains surprising wisdom from unexpected sources, including a popular talk show shrink, a drag queen named Royalle G. Biv, and yes, even her parents. But the most shocking confession concerns two people she thought had nothing to hide: Hope and Marcus.Will this knowledge inspire Jessica to give up a world of late-night literary soirees, art openings, and downtown drunken karaoke to move back to New Jersey and be with the one man who's gripped her heart for years? Jessica ponders this and other life choices with her signature snark and hyper-intense insight, making it the most tumultuous and memorable week of her twenty-something life.… (mais)

"...all I can say it I LOVED IT/THEM!!!!!!!"

END SPOILERS BELOW.

It's difficult to decide between 3 or 4 stars for this. On the one hand, I didn't like Jessica as much in this one — she usually toes the line between smart snark and pretentious cynicism, and she dipped too much into the latter here. On the other hand, I think this was a deliberate choice, considering Jessica's audience and her own words toward the end about how she's presented herself to that audience. On the one hand, I don't appreciate feeling jerked around about a relationship that it seems likely will come to a positive conclusion at the end of novel #5 (this series has certainly been milking the ups and downs of Jessica/Marcus for all it's worth). On the other hand, I found the end (Marcus's letter in particular) affecting and heartbreaking, and Jessica's reasons for giving the answer she did don't feel manufactured: this is a perspective of Marcus that readers can share. I understand why Jessica loves him, but he's also an ephemeral, changeable sort of man, sort of character.

Ultimately I'm going to rate down to three stars because I felt this novel was not as tightly edited as the previous books. There's some redundancy that should have been dealt with and even several typos. This isn't specifically the fault of the author — every author needs a good editor, but there's a tendency to give successful authors freer reign over later books in established series, to the detriment of the quality of the latter part of the series. However, it affected my reading experience, so there you go. ( )

I have really been struggling with this review. I feel so indifferent that it’s actually hard for me to determine whether I even liked this novel. Everything I had loved about the first two novels has completely disappeared by the fourth. I’m beginning to realize that what I loved so much was that I felt as if I were a friend of Jessica. Crazy, I know but that is how it felt. The two of us we just going through our lives together and while she was sharing more of her issues, I could completely empathize. It had become something of substance and I felt cheated by the singular week provided. It was the first time that the friendship felt superficial to me. She claims that she is putting down all of her feelings on paper so that she can sort through her thoughts concerning the proposal but there really wasn’t a lot of that. She just seemed to brush everything she was really feeling under the rug and there it remained until someone else brought it up. Perhaps I’m so indifferent because she is. I felt like she had lost a lot of the passion and excitement that had led me to her in the first place. I’m glad to know what happened next but she has become a person I doubt I would like to be around. I feel as if it’s almost as if the author is sick of her too. Honestly, I’m not really looking forward to the final installment. ( )

Originally read in September 2010. What I liked most about this book was how other characters came to the surface more. It's still told very much from inside Jessica's head, but Hope, Manda, Bethany, and Marin are pulled to the forefront. Maybe because Jessica is writing this notebook for Marcus, instead of recording her thoughts for herself. The overarching story of Jessica contemplating a major question from Marcus drags on a little too long as she overthinks it, but it's a good chance to see the other people in her life. ( )

The pace really threw me, especially since I started this right after charmed thirds. I loved that Hope was in this, but felt kind of betrayed by her. And I was not a fan of the ending. It just didn't feel right. Whatever happens in the final book cannot completely make up for this one. ( )

I thought about you if only because I wondered how long it would take me to stop thinking about you. I thought about you, and how I might never be able to forgive you for all the girls who came before me, nor myself for all the men who would come after you.
