    1. Before she started with Sweet Valley and other series, Pascal wrote a few novels that I really liked when I was about 12.


    2. 'My First Love and Other Disasters' is the second book in the Victoria Martin Trilogy. I enjoyed this one much more than the first one because it was a bit more relatable and funny. Victoria finds herself babysitting two young kids on an island where there's the perfect man and the totally dorky best guy friend. But which one will win her heart in the end?This book was a bit more mature than the first and a bit more humorous. It related some more realistic issus in the teen world than the first [...]


    3. This was very enjoyable and defied neat happy endings in that low-key 'let's be realistic' YA way, like: so the dude you like is a shitty spoilt dude and the dude who likes you but whom you didn't find very exciting actually turns out to be funny and giving and nice, but! End of the book, you're both still just friends, just kicking it, and that's nice, and the nice dude never gets mentioned again because you're just friends. Which I think is a very valuable lesson for overwrought 15 year olds w [...]


    4. 3 1/2 Stars. Despite my annoyance with the protagonist, this turned out to be an okay book. Some of Victoria's thoughts and views really tickled me. The plot wasn't enthralling, but it was somewhat entertaining.


    5. I just enjoyed this a lot. Her books were my favorite YA when I was growing up. I just loved her characters. They were relatable and the situations that she put them in where realistic.


    6. It was frustrating that the protagonist was brought up in a world thinking that people who disrespected her, especially in areas of consent, were right and fine to do so, and I worry for young people reading it that they might believe her in terms of what she thinks is true during those specific scenes. I know the whole point was that Jim was a jerk, but the characters never reflected on the fact that those moments were unhealthy and, truthfully, illegal. I can't stand when Teen Fiction does tha [...]


    7. My first love and other disastersBy Francine PascalVictoria, now fifteen and having just finished her freshman year of high school, she is so startled and focused on getting her parents to allow her to take a job as a "Mother helper" to their glamorous divorced neighbor when she spends the summer on Fire Island because of her opportunity to ensnare her crush, the hunky new guy at school, Jim, who will be spending the summer there. But the situation is further complicated by the fact that Jim alr [...]


    8. I read this book when I was about 13 years old, and I still remember how hilarious it was. The scene where Victoria and her best friend go to the shoe store where Jim works is probably the single most hysterically funny scene EVER. I recall actually laughing out loud at parts of the book, tears streaming.Having said all this, the book does also confront some tough topics, like the fact that Jim has a girlfriend and so is Victoria behaving well by scheming and fooling around with him? What about [...]
