Perfectly Dateless: Universally Misunderstood Series #1
This book surprised me.
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 heroineÃ¢ÂÂs life and character are brought into focus, and zoomed in on, until the reader truly knows Daisy and Ã¢ÂÂgets herÃ¢ÂÂ. 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 plannedÃ¢ÂÂ¦but He always has a few ironies tucked up his Almighty sleeves.

Simple, but touching!
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.

A fun read for teen girls.
Review by Jill Williamson
Daisy Crispin is not allowed to date until sheÃ¢ÂÂs 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.
