Product Description

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?

    This book surprised me. Written in seventeen year old girl first-person, it was hard to follow at first, but as the story unfolded I was drawn in. Every aspect of the heroine’s life and character are brought into focus, and zoomed in on, until the reader truly knows Daisy and “gets her”. The very real and frequent dilemma of growing up, making your own choices, and living with the consequences reminds readers (teen or adult) that no one is perfect, but that God can take difficult circumstances and turn them for good. Daisy learns that there is more to her parents than she knows, and they come to realize that what they have planned for her may not be what God has planned…but He always has a few ironies tucked up his Almighty sleeves.

    If you are looking for a book that is able to make you thankful for how your life is, this is it! I identified so well with the character, and earned a new perspective for my own life. Anyway,if you are for a literature masterpiece, this is not your book. It is simple, with a predictable plot... And a somehow confusing narrative! It is the typical story with the happy ending and the "now finally everything works" theme...
    But I loved the story!

    Miss Billerbeck captured the life of me and others with her novel that told everything like it is. The relationship with her parents was real-though weird and utterly embarrassing. I can relate to her struggles and her feelings. This book shows you that your not alone and it shows you how it's wise to listen to God. You're friends don't know everything.

    Review by Jill Williamson

    Daisy Crispin is not allowed to date until she’s eighteen and had moved far away from her parents watchful eyes. Still, she has one dream for her senior year: attend prom with a date. T minus 196 days and counting. Daisy has a list of five possible candidates. But there is one other small problem. She is invisible, wears sad homemade clothing, and her only social skill is to spout random statistics. Not cool. Still she is determined and sets off to win the prize of having a date to senior prom.

    This was a fun read. Daisy is a quirky character who tries really hard to do the right thing. And when she fails, she fails big time. I read this in one sitting because it was too much fun to watch Daisy bounce between boys, fashion, friends, parental stress, and her job. A fun read for teen girls.

    Perfectly Dateless by Kristin Billerbeck is the first in the Universally Misunderstood series. Daisy Crispin wants her senior year to be different. Her parents are over-the-top about being stingy with money as well as way over-protective of their only child. She attends a Christian high school, but wears homemade clothing more appropriate for a Denny's waitress, and she's not allowed to date..ever. But Daisy wants a date for prom to show that her time in high school wasn't a complete waste, and she's sick of being perfect. Perfect grades, perfect daughter, hard working, etc. But there are cliques in her high school, just like any other, and despite attending school there for three years, she's virtually invisible to anyone with popularity, except for life-long crush Chase, who would be her ideal date. I had a hard time liking Claire, Daisy's best friend. Claire can't seem to ever say anything even remotely nice, and she refused to listen to anything Daisy had to say, regularly disregarding her feelings. But Daisy is a stand-out heroine. She is occasionally misled, but her intentions are so good and her thirst for life so strong, it's impossible not to love her. At first her parents seem like any other set in YA Christian fiction, well-intentioned but misunderstood by their children, but as the book progresses, the reader discovers that Daisy's parents are truly every teen's worst nightmare. They refuse to listen to anything she has to say or consider her point of view because they are so completely obsessed with her not repeating their mistakes. Their character growth as well as Daisy's makes the book a terrific read for teens as they realize that parents can make mistakes too, and are works in progress, just like they are. I do hope that Billerbeck writes more books using these characters, especially Claire who is in desperate need of best-friend rehab.
