A Kid's Review on January 25, 2001
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. It was one of my favorite Turning Seventeen copies. Jessica got into some trouble, but finally did the right thing to get out of it.I think she is one of the best girls in this series. She has a lovely way of making everything turn out. She has to do so much, but still has time to do it and be with her friends. She's like Wonder Woman, but as an almost seventeen year old girl, just doing what she feels she has to, just going with the flow,and going to college at the same time.It's hard to go to college if you're still in high school, but she does it. It's hard to make time for all your friends and your boyfriend when you're so busy, but she does it.It's hard to just think strait if so many things are going on in your life and you just want to get a whole new one, but know you can't and just have to deal with it,she can do it.That is why I decided to write a review for this book, I believe that Jessica is a young woman with a lot of spunk. Wendi Corsi Staub is a very talented writer and I want to thank her for inventing this series.

In this book, smart, geeky Jessica meets a guy named Scott as a B.B.Q Party. Scott ends up hitting on Jessica, and kissing her. Meanwhile, Jessica has a b/f, Alex. She and Alex had been going steady for 2 years. Jessica ends up being a 'bad girl' and sneaking out with Scott. Scott ends up to be a total player-at a party, he tries to have sex with jessica-and when she says no, he has sex with a drunk girl. jessica dumps him, but she does something to Alex-that she'll totally regreat.
This book was soooooo awesome! It's even better then the first TURNING SEVENTEEN book!

Wow! That pretty much sums up my feelings about the second book in the "Turning Seventeen" series. "More Than This" focuses on Jessica, a beautiful straight-A student with the sweetest boyfriend one can imagine. She seems like she has it all, but she feels like something's missing. We learned from the first book that Kerri is Jessica's best friend and we got a glimpse of her busy life, attending courses at the local college, a part of the yearbook staff and squeezing in time to spend with her boyfriend, Alex. This book really explores who Jessica is and what she wants out of life. She's not content with her relationship and ends up getting involved with bad boy Scott. Jessica makes some irresponsible choices throughout this book that I think a lot of girls can not only relate to, but learn from. Don't expect a complete happy ending, but expect a fantastic read. I finished it in a few hours!
