Created from here.
lol, I’m totally making one.
Poll: Who from YA lit is most like Obama?
1. Liz Wakefield, for being so honest and squeaky-clean. (Typing that made my teeth hurt.)
2. Caitlin Ryan, for being really fucking rich.
3. Jana Morgan, for her leadership skills.
4. Jessi Ramsey. Do I need to explain this one?
… They’re both really good at ballet and can’t babysit at night?
IHW– Did you scan your inventory of SVHs to find a suitable Jessica cover? Or did you just have that one in mind?
I ask because that cover (can’t remember the book but I know it was from the early 90s era–maybe it was one of the super editions about the prom?) is PRECISELY the one I carry around in my mind when I think of Jessica’s self-absorbtion. It would be weird if we both had that mental association burned on our brains.
Oh, and as for Liz’s Condescension: I think all of us here know how amazingly quick and easy a task it was to come up with a cover illustrating that.
It’s the cheekbones, by the way. Something about Jimmy’s perfect rendering of rounded cheeks and pursed lips bespeaks just the right combination of self-pleasure and sauce. It’s not the airy hauteur of Lila or the smug self-satisfaction of sanctimony.
The best Jessica covers showcase her indelible essence of “I not only love myself–I take pleasure in being me and being as outrageous as I wanna be.”
Can you tell I’m a Jessica fan? (Not as much as Lila, though. Lila doesn’t send me on a roller coaster of “I love you…no, you madden me…nah, I think I love you.”)
Jener, I didn’t want to be the one to tell you this, but Jessi is (looks over the shoulder to make sure no one is listening) BLACK.
who would want to babysit at night when we all know its a prime time for racism to be exposed in dear stonnybrooke? lol.
