I read an advanced copy of this book, and I am here to tell you that it’s PRIME Fug Nation reading; I loved it, and I think you will, too.
What’s it about? WHAT A QUESTION. Let’s virtually flip this thing over and find out!
The year is 1991. Scrunchies, mixtapes and 90210 are, like, totally fresh. Cassie Worthy is psyched to spend the summer after graduation working at the Parkway Center Mall. In six weeks, she and her boyfriend head off to college in NYC to fulfill The Plan: higher education and happily ever after.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…
Set entirely in a classic “monument to consumerism,” the novel follows Cassie as she finds friendship, love, and ultimately herself, in the most unexpected of places. Megan McCafferty, beloved New York Times bestselling author of the Jessica Darling series, takes readers on an epic trip back in time to The Mall.
The Mall comes out today and you can buy it here at Bookshop, and everywhere else you get your books. But we hae three signed, personalized copies to give away. Yay!
THE TASK: As usual, I’ll be picking the winner at random. To enter, please comment and tell us: What was your favorite store in the mall? Mine was probably Waldenbooks, but I LOVED getting an Orange Julius. God, I wish I had an Orange Julius right now.
