2010 book 229

Megan Mccafferty's Sloppy Firsts
I had the intentions of reading a deep Jewishy novel on Yom Kippur this year (Joseph Skibell's A Blessing on the Moon) but you just can't concentrate on great literature when you're fasting. So, cute YA books it is! This is the first in a series that always gets raves on YA book blogs for having a real, likable, snarky heroine, and I've been meaning to read it for a while. And the heroine is real and likable and snarky, dealing with high school angst after her best friend moves away. It came out in like 2000, though, so there are a few hilariously dated references to pagers. Luckily high school drama, crushes, and friendships are always timely.
