Jess got her man and they are massively in love. She's looking forward to
The best thing about the first book was Jess's distinctive, feisty voice. Here, Limb saves the drama for the end, making most of the novel a travelogue sprinkled with Jess' insecurities. The girl's still lovable, and while it would have been nice to see more of her with her friends rather than adults, it's good to have her back. (Oct., 224 pp., $15.95)
