The Jelly Bean Crisis by Jolene Stockman
A total meltdown. The whole school watching. Now Poppy’s an ex-straight-A with no Plan B.
When Poppy Johnson throws away a full scholarship to Columbia, she can only blame the jelly beans. The yucky green ones? Midnight cram sessions and Saturday’s spent studying. The delicious red? The family legacy: Columbia, and a future in finance. Except now it’s starting to look like Poppy’s jelly bean theory is wrong. School has been her life until, but maybe it’s time to start living now.
Poppy has thirty days to try a new life. No school, no studying. Just jumping into every possible world. Thirty days to find her passion, her path, and maybe even love.
The Jelly Bean Crisis is officially on.

Jelly Bean Crisis is an analogy for going through crap and doing stuff you don’t want to do to get to the good stuff you do want. It’s a great story about a girl whose life is perfectly planed but she gets second thoughts about it all and decides to go on a search for her happiness by taking a month off for finding out what she wants to do in her life. It’s a good read with a great message. I could connect to Poppy and her situation and I admired her for standing up to her parents without any major drama. I wish there were a little more romance in it but that’s just my preference. I know the story was about Poppy and her life but I wished the friends were more developed characters as well. I feel it would be easier to understand them. All in all a good read.
