The Mall Summary
New York Times bestselling author Megan McCafferty returns to her roots with this YA coming of age story set in a New Jersey Mall.
The Year is 1991. Scrunchies, mixtapes and 90210 are, like, totally fresh. Cassie Worthy is psyched to spend the summer after graduation working at the Parkway Center Mall. In 6 weeks, she and her boyfriend head off to college in NYC to fulfill The Plan: higher education and happily ever after.
But you know what they say about best laid plans.
Set entirely in a classic “momument to consumerism”, the novel follows Cassie as she finds friendship, love, and ultimately herself, in the most unexpected of places.
The Mall Review
I gave The Mall 4 stars. It was an easy read and the characters were realistic and mix of likeable and complicated. The storyline has enough aspects to feel like you don’t have to be a fan of romance or mystery or contemporary. It is a good mix. The Mall shows people that they don’t have to be the high school version of themselves forever, it is okay to evolve and discover that you want more for yourself and lift other people up too without having to be snobby or look down your nose at people who want different things from you.
