Product Description

Daisy Crispin is at a crossroads. In one direction lies the promised land--life at college, away from her embarrassing and overprotective parents. In the other direction is reality--her strapped bank account, an ailing father, and family priorities. Daisy knows the "perfect" daughter wouldn't have to think twice. But maybe Daisy was never really perfect on any level, because she does not want her life to look the way her parents think it should. She won't let that stop her, though. Now that she has been given an exciting free trip to Argentina before going to college, she's thrilled--until her parents decide to go along with her.

    All too realistic.

    Daisy Crispin's life is changing, in just a few months she will be on her way to college on a full ride scholarship. So for the Summer she is planning to go on a relaxing vacation to Argentina, but there's just one teeny, tiny -- HUGE problem. In order to get the full scholarship, Daisy has to complete 2 weeks of missions work. But her big Summer vacation plans don't have any room for missions. And what about her old Argentine boyfriend? What's a girl to do?

    I liked how this book had a realistic feel to it and I could honestly see the things happening in real life. But I had a tough time getting into this book, and honestly I never really did. Because this book was the third in a series where I had not read the other two, it was difficult to catch up on what had happened in the last books. And there were parts that to me, were slow going. There were parts that I liked, and I really liked the conclusion, (but I can't tell you about that!).

    This book was well written with a upbeat first person present tense narrative. Because the book had a great realness to it was an totally teenage over-dramatic touch, but in the end I have concluded that the book didn't relate to me, personally. And overall, I guess I'm just sorry that I couldn't appreciate this book as much as it deserves, and as much as a I wanted to.

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

    Summary: Daisy is so fed up with guys! She's right here, in Argentina, the home of Max and yet he's all but ignoring her. She really thought he was interested in her, even loved her. And yet when he should be pursuing her the most, he's backing off. Whatever. She's got a job to do. She is here to do a last minute service project in order to earn the scholarship she needs to get into college and she doesn't need a guy messing that up. Enter J.C., a good looking guy who's really into her and has a huge heart for hurting children. When he discovers an abused child, he risks his own life to save her from the abusive parent. But he's also risking Daisy's scholarship. The director of the mission hated Daisy from the moment she walked in and will take any available excuse to get rid of her. As luck would have it, that's sort of the fault of a guy too. Poor Daisy! Does she stand at a chance at having a guy just love her and not lead her straight into trouble?

    Notes: In this book, the 3rd in the Universally Misunderstood series, the character continues to explore what God's will is and what her identity should be. It continues Daisy's story as a girl from a very strict family (homemade clothes, no cell phones, no dates, no accepting rides from guys, etc) who desperately longs for normal to the point where she rebels to get it in the first book. At this point, she's come a long ways in her relationship with God and her relationship with her parents. But she still is unsure of who she is and who she should be. And she's very unsure of her relationship with Max. The spiritual themes are focused around being content where God has placed you. Daisy has to learn to fall in love with Jesus before she can enter into a relationship with a guy.

    Joshua 22:5 - But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you: to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to obey his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul.

    Thank you to Revell for giving me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion!

    Daisy Crispin makes me smile. She believes in God, but this time her problems might be even too big for Him to solve. She believes in love but keeps landing in Dumpsville. She deserves a vacation; she gets an adventure.

    Kristen Billerbeck did us a favor when she created Daisy. Her character is strong, scatter-brained, and unlucky. She has a boy problem--two of them. All she wants is independence, and she gets stuck in prison. What is that all about? :)

    The beginning of the tale took off slowly via Daisy's journal, which could have had an easier-to-read font. While it was enjoyable to read, the action didn't pick up until near the middle. Then I couldn't put it down.

    Dialogue rocked. I always knew who was talking and giggling over what they said.

    Plot was unpredictable.

    The supporting cast of characters were charming and 3-D. Max was a wee bit aggravating at times. My emotions were jerked all about with that character--as Daisy's were.

    Spiritual arc seemed a bit hammered in at the end. The concept was clear and consistent throughout the book.

    In short this novel is a perfectly ridiculous read. I recommend it. I received this book courtesy of Revell. This is my honest opinion.

    You've got to love Daisy. She really tries to get it right. All she ever wanted was to blend in and not be noticed. It's not easy to be "odd man out" in high school.

    Daisy made it through school and was looking forward to summer. A lot of Daisy's life has been perfectly ridiculous, but now she thinks she's gotten beyond that.

    She's going on a vacation with her good friend to Argentina, and will get to spend time with her "so called" boyfriend. Then off to college in the fall.

    She's thing that's a perfect beginning to her post high school life. Wrong! Her college scholarship is based on doing charity work. Okay, that takes up one week of her vacation, but she still has another week to enjoy. Wrong! Her parents decide to come with her. You know - the father who dresses in silly costumes and sings, and the mother who makes all Daisy's dorky clothes.

    Then there's the alleged boyfriend and then a new possible boyfriend. What could happen with all that going on? Lots could and does happen.

    I'm eager for the next book in Daisy's life.

    Daisy and Claire have finally graduated from high school and Claire's parents give them an all-expenses-paid vacation to Argentina as a graduation present. The only problem? Daisy learns that she must fulfill a community service / missions requirement to remain eligible for her college scholarship. Her vacation turns into a mission trip . . . and her parents decide to join her as a chaperone. This is not turning out to be the vacation of her dreams! Will anything in Daisy's life work out like she plans?

    I've been reading quite a bit of YA fiction recently and jumped at the chance to read Kristin Billerbeck's Perfectly Ridiculous. I wanted to go back and read the earlier books in the series before reading the third, but I had a really hard time getting into the first book. I finally just skipped ahead to Perfectly Ridiculous and found it to be a delightfully funny book!

    This is a story that will take you right back to all the turmoil and angst of high school. Daisy's parents don't understand her, her best friend is her complete opposite, she has crushes on boys who don't return her feelings, and she's fighting to assert her independence before she goes off to college. Billerbeck does a great job of portraying all the craziness of being a high school girl!

    If you're looking for a light-hearted summer read full of laughs, you'll enjoy Perfectly Ridiculous! [4 stars]

    I received a free copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my fair and honest review.
