Book Review: Fourth Comings by Megan McCafferty
Fourth Comings takes place over a week as Jessica decides whether or not to accept her boyfriend Marcus's marriage proposal that came out of the blue just as she was contemplating breaking up with him. The book is written as journal entries that are for Marcus's eyes only so there is a lot of "you" references. We, the reader, are really Marcus, the you.
Although the books prior to this were light on plot this one is pretty non-existent. A whole book dedicated to a 22-year-old deciding to marry or break up with her boyfriend is not very interesting, despite a cast of characters who are familiar and fun. I would say that the fourth book is the weakest and I just hope that book five ends the series on a high note.
6 out of 10.
