Synopsis

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 six 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 the best laid plans…

Set entirely in a classic “monument to consumerism,” the novel follows Cassie as she finds friendship, love, and ultimately herself, in the most unexpected of places.


Review

If you’re looking for a fun, fast-paced hit of nostalgia, look no further. The Mall is a look at teen life highs and lows through the epicenter of teenage culture – the mall.

Cassie Worthy is fresh off a not-so-great bout of mono and is excited to start the summer before college off by working together with her boyfriend of two years at the local mall. But plans shift unexpectedly and Cassie finds herself working alongside a former best friend and crushing on the music store’s rebel cashier. With laugh-out-loud humor and a Cabbage Patch-led treasure hunt, Megan McCafferty’s The Mall is a story you won’t want to put down.
