Perfectly Dateless (review)

Perfectly Dateless
By: Kristin Billerbeck
My Copy: From Publisher (Revell)

Summary: Daisy Crispin has 242 days to find the right date for the prom. There's only one problem--her parents won't let her date or even talk to a guy on the phone. Oh, and she's totally invisible at school, has to wear lame homemade clothes, and has no social skills. Okay, so maybe there's more than one problem. Can she talk her parents into letting her go to the prom? Or will they succeed at their obvious attempt to completely ruin her life? With hilarious and truthful writing, Kristin Billerbeck uncovers the small--and large--mortifications that teen girls encounter. Readers will fall in love with Daisy's sharp wit and resourcefulness as she navigates the world of boys, fashion, family, and friendship.

Review: Perfectly Dateless was a fun summer read, but not too much more. It’s not too deep, there’s no insanely important life-changing lesson that the characters learn. But it was very entertaining and hilarious. While at times Daisy could be a bit rude she had great comebacks and sarcasm. I didn't care for her journal entries, they were a bit to long and not that important.

Lets face it, there are so many dark paranormal books covering the shelves at bookstores now it’s nice to get a break from that (even though I love them). So if this sounds like a book you would enjoy, make sure you throw it into you suitcase, or beach bag this summer.
