Riot Grrrl Problems

"Watching repeats of Nickelodeon’s Clarissa Explains It All is like opening a neon-colored ’90s time capsule, where 15-year-old Clarissa Darling could explain absolutely anything with the help of quippy monologues, her best friend Sam, and rudimentary computer games. Now, almost 19 years after the series finale, Clarissa creator Mitchell Kriegman is letting our fashion-forward heroine enter uncharted territory with a new book, Things I Can’t Explain, tentatively slated for Fall 2014. Acquired by Thomas Dunne Books editor and Macmillan Films head Brendan Deneen, the novel will follow 23-year-old Clarissa as she tries to carve out a career as a journalist and deals with the obstacles toward becoming a real adult: finding and keeping a job in a turbulent economy, the luxury of a first apartment without roommates, figuring out how to deal with parents all over again, and unexpected feelings for a really cute guy who — of course — has an on-and-off again girlfriend.”

—I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t really, really excited about this.
