Perfectly Dateless by Kristin Billerbeck Book Review


Perfectly Dateless
By Kristin Billerbeck
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3439-8
Available July 2010; $9.99

From the publisher:

The countdown to prom has begun. 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.

My Review:

Have you ever seen the series Gilmore Girls?  I felt like I was reading the story, only with a Christian twist. 

The main character is Daisy who has over protective parents.  She also has a best friend who I would not want on my bad side.  This book is meant for the young at heart and is definitely meant to bring humor when the “teenage" years are the hardest.

I thought the book was humorous only because I kept picturing the Gilmore re-runs.  In every chapter, is an allude to something that has happened in either social media or in the last few years.  Again, the same with the Gilmore Girls.  (I doubt my Grandma would understand half the references.)

I would hesitate to allow young young eyes read this book without the permission of the parents.  It had reference to drugs and some parts suggest other things that are for the mature audience.

Note:  I was sent complimentary copy for review purposes only.  This review has not been monetarily compensated.  The review was my honest opinion and views and not influenced by the sponsor in any way.
