Being in high school is tough but it is worse if you are Daisy Crispin. Daisy is a perfect student and never gets into trouble. Poor Daisy her parents won’t let her date. This makes things very complicated to get a date to prom, when prom is only 196 days away.
Daisy doesn’t care what her parents say she can or can’t do. All Daisy knows is that she can’t go off to college without a prom picture to show. It will be just embarrassing if she is the only girl in college who has never dated or had a prom date. Luckily for Daisy, her good friend Claire won’t let Daisy go to college without a prom picture.
Perfectly Dateless is a comical, light-hearted, fast read. Young adults will enjoy and relate to Daisy. Daisy is so likeable. The comments Daisy’s mom would make were so funny but I couldn’t help but feel sorry for Daisy and how embarrassed she must have felt. Like when Chase called for Daisy and her mother told Daisy it is not proper for a guy to be calling or when her mother “humping” in relation to the prom. I plan to check out Kristin Billerbeck other books.
