"You, yes you."
The final installment of Jessica Darling's life with and without Marcus Flutie, perfect fifths, by Megan McCafferty begins with Jessica dashing through the airport to catch a plane to her friends' Bridget and Percy's wedding. As the title suggests, this is the fifth in McCafferty's series and, as the final chapter, seeks to answer all the questions Jessica and Marcus have about their tumultuous past and uncertain future. The entire book is staged around a meeting between Jessica and Marcus who have not seen each other in three years . . . since the day Jessica refused Marcus' marriage proposal. There is an amazing section written entirely in Haiku poetry which stands out as one of the most unique "conversations" I have ever read. I loved this whole series and it left me wondering where Jessica Darling was when I needed her in high school and college. This book is due to be published and available for sale on April 14, 2009.
