”Being a twenty something aspiring journalist with boy problems, roommate problems, money problems and parent problems sure is hard. But thankfully for all the Hannah Horvaths of the world, Clarissa Darling is coming back.”
“The premise [of Things I Can't Explain] sounds a lot like Clarissa Now, the 1995 CBS pilot that never made it to series but I would have given my right pinky toe to see.”
“Clarissa made me feel like my goals were possible despite the many naysayers I’d encounter in my life. Realistic and engaging, she was the first contemporary character that truly engaged me… Judging by fans’ reactions to the news about Clarissa creator Mitchell Kriegman’s upcoming Things I Can’t Explain... many others feel the same way.”
"Time to break out your loudest clothing, because Clarissa Darling is back. In a book, not a TV show. But still. Way cool.”
“Add in her talented computer game-creating skillz, a GUY best friend (practically unheard-of back then) who climbed in through her bedroom window via a ladder, and a pet alligator named Elvis, and [Clarissa] was everything I wanted to be.”
“I still have vivid memories of forcing my father to watch the show with me, no matter how much he protested, and there’s a good chance every girl who grew up in the 90’s will want to read [Things I Can't Explain], regardless of age.”
