“Knowing that I’ve just done something that will take decades off my parents’ lives with worry, you’ll excuse me for not getting into the fa-la-la-la-la Yuletide spirit this year…The only difference between Christmas 2001 and Christmas 2000 is that I don’t have a visit from Hope to look forward to. And Bethany has already packed on some major fetal flab. Oh, and now Gladdie doesn’t need to ask a bizillion questions about my boyfriend, because she’s already gotten the dirt from you know who.”

Jessica Darling is up in arms again in this much-anticipated, hilarious sequel to Sloppy Firsts. This time, the hyperobservant, angst-ridden teenager is going through the social and emotional ordeal of her senior year at Pineville High. Not only does the mysterious and oh-so-compelling Marcus Flutie continue to distract Jessica, but her best friend, Hope, still lives in another state, and she can’t seem to escape the clutches of the Clueless Crew, her annoying so-called friends. To top it off, Jessica’s parents won’t get off her butt about choosing a college, and her sister Bethany’s pregnancy is causing a big stir in the Darling household.

    I don’t know if you’ve read Playlist for the Dead already, but I’d love to see your creative interpretation of this book.

    This color palate is probably my favorite one so far! Although I love me some greys (haha, much to Matt’s dismay – he grumbles anytime I come home with another grey piece of clothing), blues and purples make my heart sing!

    I love this wallpaper–it is just luminous with beauty! I am so drawn to blues and purples and pinks, and the color combo here is gorgeous.

    I imagine you’ve probably already done All Four Stars and I can look it up, but if you haven’t chosen that book for wallpaper, I would put my vote in!

  6. You are incredibly talented! I would love love love to see you create something with any of the numerous covers of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I am doing my Master’s thesis on the novel right now!
