Megan McCafferty

As many of you know, especially my fellow booksellers, I love the Jessica Darling Series (Sloppy Firsts, Second Helpings, Charmed Thirds, Fourth Comings and soon Perfect Fifths). You know this cause I have raved about these books, I have recommended them to every customer who seems to have a similar taste in books and cause I have included "Meet Megan McCafferty" on my 101 list. Well, she is having a senryu contest to win an Advanced Reader Copy of the fifth and final book… and my entries are below. Some spoilers included, so if you haven’t read/finished the books, don’t read these! And if you haven’t read the books, you should. Just ask those who I have convinced to do so :D

Sloppy Firsts
Loss of Hope and Heath
Plus meatballers and bimbos
Marcus is her Fall

Second Helpings
Jess, Marcus and Len
The end of youth and high school
You. Yes. You. means more

Charmed Thirds
College apart, while
Love may have the longest arms
Time is still fickle

Fourth Comings
Grown up, yet still green
No syllabus to guide life
No wedding either

Perfect Fifths
Sadness will remain
With the loss of good friends, but
Perfect Fifths=closure
