Perfectly Dateless Review

Hmmmm, I hardly know what to say about this book. Perfectly Dateless, by Kristin Billerbeck, is a teenage fiction novel about a young girl, Daisy, who is looking for the perfect date for prom. The problem is that she comes from a strong Christian family who won't let her date and she is determined to change their minds.

I did not like this book. Understandable as I am not a teenage heart-throb out looking for the next man meat to devour. However, I think I would have found it melodramatic even as a teenager. I was never this boy crazy. The book is written half story, half journal entries (which I found boring) and definitely not my kind of book.

Who this book is good for: This book might possibly be good for a very young teenager. Any highschool student would most likely scoff at the naiive absurdity of it all. However, a preteen 12-14 year old would probably swoon at the prospect of prom and prom dates.

**I received this book free of charge through Baker Publishing House
