Darla Decker Diaries – Book 1

Patience is for people without worlds to conquer. I’m practically a teen, and I have ZERO patience.

“This novel has the potential to be to a modern audience what [Judy] Blume’s works were to girls of the 70s and 80s, and its blunt honesty and relevant topics make it the preferable choice.” ~ AvidEye

“In Darla, McHugh has created a character that is dynamic and interesting and while I don’t pretend in any way to really know the mindset of a young, pre-teen girl, I read the prose and I feel like I am hearing the voice of a child. Not the perfected cartoonized version of a child, not as simple fodder for the story, but as a genuine, three dimensional, real child. It brought me back to a lot of the young adult books I would read in grade school, living along with the day-to-day exploits of the protagonist as she deals with the dramas of her life and underneath everything, the ultimate and slow transition into adulthood.” ~ C. Clark, Author

Darla Decker Diaries – Book 2

Being a teenager is complicated when you’re only eleven, but I am soooooooo ready for the challenge.

“Every now and then you get the chance to connect with a book, to find a story and a group of characters that tickle all the happy, nostalgic parts of your brain and takes you back to places you thought were gone forever.” ~ C. Clark, Author

“Oh, camp life. It’s humiliating and magical, heady and miserable, all at the same time. You’re never really ready to go, but then again, you never really want to leave. Jessica McHugh does a brilliant job of capturing that poignant childhood experience….” ~ Ellie Di Julio

Darla Decker Diaries – Book 3

Cigarettes, shoplifting, and show choir…. I’m sure it will be a doozy of a 7th grade!

“Between the annoying older brother, mostly supportive parents with their own problems, and all the anxiety of early puberty, Darla reminded me of my earlier teenage years in an almost uncomfortably realistic way (which is a high compliment).” ~ Kimberly Lacey

“Once again McHugh delivers with this coming of age series. It definitely hits you right in the feels over and over!” ~ Mad Mae
