My least favorite of the trilogy, but still cute and entertaining. Does capture a sense of adolescent angst and emotional volatility. Also makes me happy to be a grown up in many ways!

One of a series by Sue Limb, this is the most recent volume. I confess I haven't read the other two and I'm not sure Iwill after reading this one. It's okay, but nothing spectacular. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385732198, Paperback)

It's never fun when a great summer comes to an end.

Particularly when one argues with one’s adorable, but grossly insensitive, boyfriend the night before school starts. It’s such a terrible fight, Jess doesn’t know—are they broken up? Should she apologize? Too bad Jess is spending all her time in detention and can’t talk to Fred to figure it out. A sadistic new English teacher has decided Jess needs an attitude adjustment, and Jess can’t seem to stop making terrible mistakes. When she ends up pantless in her own backyard, Jess is left to ask herself: Where did she go wrong? And what can be done to make it up to Fred and salvage this horrible, horrible year?
