May Book Review Club - PERFECT FIFTHS

Hope you had a super Cinco De Mayo! We enjoyed our annual soft taco supremes and nachos for dinner. :) Yum. 

The first Wednesday means another edition of the Book Review Club. Today I'm  featuring PERFECT FIFTHS from my May Chick Lit Pick column for South Jersey Mom magazine. Thanks again to Barrie Summy,
fabulous author of I DO DON'T DO MYSTERIES for organizing this event. 

Perfect Fifths
By: Megan McCafferty

New Jersey mom and best-selling author, Megan McCafferty pens Perfect Fifths, the highly anticipated fifth book of the bestselling Jessica Darling series.


Eight years ago, McCafferty introduced readers to New Jersey native, Jessica Darling and her eccentric high school classmate, Marcus Flutie with Sloppy Firsts. Four novels later, Jessica and Marcus have endured high school drama, separate ivy league educations, a marriage proposal, infidelity, and death, leaving readers wondering if this duo was truly destined to be. Told over the course of hours during a chance encounter at an airport, McCafferty switches from her usual first person point of view to third person, sprinkling in scenes of pure dialogue and poetry, thus allowing readers a chance to dive into Marcus’s head for the first time. Will Marcus and Jessica end up together? Or are they just too different?


Unique and unforgettable, McCafferty’s incredible voice and creative prose will carry Perfect Fifths to the top of the bestsellers’ list. Don’t miss this amazing series.

Today I'm recommending Perfect Fifths to Nicole at WORD for Teens. Enjoy, Nicole! But, I have a sneaky suspicion, you probably already read this one. 


Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone! And don't forget to check out more book reviews here

Wow, sounds intriguing. Hats off to an author who can grow her characters out of high school and into college and beyond. That is an amazing feat!

I agree! How exciting to have a fifth book in a series, still exploring your fave character!

Thanks for this review. I am always looking for new books for my teenage daughter -- and I think she has worn the Twilight romance out at this point!

I'm always amazed by how many pies you get your fingers in Mrs. Mikulski. You must make very good pies.

(I intend to sample one soon)

Sheri said...

She writes between first and third person??? That alone makes me intrigued enough to read it! I HAVE to see how a writer would do this...

Sarahlynn said...

Oh, this sounds fun. When I'm done with my current stack, I think I'll move on to ONLY reading YA for a while . . .

Angela said...

Ohhhh poetry too!? I'm going to check it out!

Keri Mikulski said...

Hi, Big Plain V! Hmm.. Interesting choice of words. LOL. :)

Hi, Sheri! The other books in the series were first and this one is third. She pulls it off really well, giving the reader an insiders perspective of Marcus. :)

Hi, Sarah Lynn! Enjoy! ;)

Hey, Angela! Enjoy! ;)
