Books 31-40 offered us readers a great deal of drama.  Let’s review what happened:

Time Elapsed: About  26 weeks (136 weeks total)

  • Jessica dates a fat guy and is mortified

By the Numbers:

  • # of guys Jessica dates: 6

During the course of these books, the twins also had a spring break and a winter break-thing, wherein there was that terrible carnival.  I personally cannot wait to see what happens next!
