Perfectly Dateless: Book Review

About The Book:


Daisy Crispin has 196 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, wears lame homemade clothes, and possesses 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 attempts to completely ruin her life?


Perfectly Dateless is hilarious, shocking, and totally real. You'll fall in love with Daisy's sharp wit and resourcefulness as she navigates the world of boys, fashion, family, and friendship.


About The Author:

Kristin Billerbeck is the bestselling, award-winning author of several novels, includingWhat a Girl Wants. A Christy Award finalist and two-time winner of the American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year, Billerbeck has appeared on The Today Showand has been featured in the New York Times. She lives with her family in northern California.

My Review:
This is the first of Ms. Billerbeck that I have had the pleasure of reading. Perfectly Dateless follows the senior year of Daisy, and all the typical scenarios that teen girls will go through. The novel was an easy, and quick, read with strong story lines and well-developed characters. There will be topics in this book that will appeal to all young adults (and other readers alike). These include: dealing with parents, teen romance angst, and finding a date to the problem, among others. Most importantly, Perfectly Dateless will teach young girls how to be a godly young lady when trying to fit into the world around them. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up!
