      MY REVIEW:If you liked the movie Napoleon Dynamite then you will like this novel aimed at teen girls. However, I thought that Napoleon Dynamite was rather pointless and that's how I feel about this book as well. There was a lot of drama, and some humor, too, but not a lot of clear purpose.I liked the theme - conservative parents at odds with their generally well-behaved teen daughter. But there was so many other issues and characters packed into this book that it was hard to follow along at poin [...]

      Daisy Crispin is the school's biggest geek. Her parents are overly protective, she wears lame clothes, has never been on a date, and gets made fun of by all the cool kids. But this is Daisy's senior year. And she's determined to change all that. With a little luck and a lot of planning, Daisy plans to go to her prom with the perfect guyd show her classmates just how cool she can be. Very disappointed with this book. :( I love chick lit. I read a lot of it. I was expecting this to be a light, flu [...]

      I don't often give one stars. You have to really, really upset me in some way for me to give your book one star. But this book was such a mess. It started off cute - the opening chapters were full of fun, snappy one-liners and descriptions that made me smile.I could even handle the absolutely, completely insane parents because Daisy seemed normal and was bucking against their totally, over-the-top controlling ways. (I'm a big, big believer in free will. I believe you teach your children, you set [...]

      I really like this author, so I was really unhappy about this book. First of all, I hate love triangles! Second, I hate when the guy you like is the bad guy!!! And then she ends up with the guy who is only briefly in the book! AHH! I like her other books better.

      Perfectly Dateless by Kristin Billerbeck is a YA (Young Adult) novel about a high school senior named Daisy who is determined to find a date for the prom, despite her low social status. In an often amusing story, Billerbeck shows that she’s in touch with teen culture, even if her tale derails at the end.Daisy Crispin lives in a world controlled entirely by her parents, who do not permit her to date or talk on the phone to boys. They have committed her to marriage by courtship. Not only that, b [...]

      There were some things I enjoyed about this book and somet so much. I loved how weird Daisy was, but not how she talked to her mother and father. I've met some rude teens in my life, but whoa, is this one more rude than most, and not just in her thoughts. It was like a Christian version of Rosanne. Remember that TV show? Anyway, I'm not all that into fashion and never have been, so some of the vanity stuff and importance of looking good in all the right brands went right over my head. On the oth [...]

      My goodness after reading this book I feel like I just had a whirlwind return to high school. When I first picked up Perfectly Dateless: A Universally Misunderstood Novel I assumed that it was a novel like Never the Bride: A Novel or the film 27 Dresses, I had not realized it was about a senior in high school searching for a prom date. Kristin did a great job of really tapping into the mentality and conversations of teen, almost adult, but not quite there yet girls and guys. On many levels I fel [...]

      Daisy Crispin is an absolute perfectionist. But her life is anything but perfect- in her eyes, at least. Her parents, who, for a living, dress up in costumes and sing at parties (and her school…yeah, awkward), are conservative to the max. Translation: homemade clothes, no cable, no phone, and no car (for Daisy, that is). On top of it all, Daisy is perfectly dateless, and with prom coming up, that is the one thing Daisy doesn’t want to be. So to help get herself a date, Daisy starts a “prom [...]

    12. Christy Lockstein

      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 dateever. But Daisy wants a date for prom to show that her time in high school wasn't a complete waste, and sh [...]

    13. Chelsey Mbf

      I feel like I abandoned this book too quickly but at the same time I feel OK ditching this novel at pg 19. I know it sounds like I didn't give it a chance but with the way it started outI feel it would be a waste of my time to continue. for the most part the protagonist is relatable. Some of her narrative sounds like me when I was in high school, except when I said those things, people never called it witty or insightful. *sad face* (No offense to the author.) I feel like I'm irritated enough by [...]

    14. Kelli

      Kristin Billerbeck's books are so funny and crazy. She writes fluff novels that are actually really enjoyable without being too sappy. I didn't like that the book started out with such a long diary entry. Billerbeck seems queen of the random paragraphs that go off topic. But I guess thats just her interpretation of teenage girls. And really some of them are like that with how they talk. Still, I do enjoy reading about the main character. The whole 'finding a prom date' story line is classic and [...]

    15. Kaylea

      I think a lot of girls feel the same "desperation" that Kristin Billerbeck portrays in her main female character - Daisy Crispin, as she "counts down" the days until her senior prom. Daisy not only sees it as THE event of her senior year, she sees it as THE event that will set the tone for the rest of her life.But, as Daisy learns, life doesn't always go according to plan, no matter how much she tries to control everything around her - or tries to break out of her "structured" upbringing.I thoug [...]

      Being raised by parents who are determined you will not make the same mistakes they made, can be miserable. Just ask Daisy Crispin. Her parents, who were raised in non-Christian homes, have sheltered Daisy to the point she is now feeling smothered. Trying to break out and find who Daisy is, though is much harder than she thought. Urged on by her best friend Claire, she finds that sometimes her ideas and Claire's totally clash. Senior year, it is supposed to be your most memorable high school yea [...]

      Daisy wants to go to prom, but it's not as easy as that. Daisy is a young Christian girl who has parents that have interesting view on how to live life. They are ridiculously strict and won't allow her to shop at certain stores. She can only wear homemade clothes and her parents won't let her talk to boys because she is only allowed to "court" not date. Because she is invisible at school, Daisy decides she wants to go out with a bang. She wants to go to prom with a boy. But, all of her attempts [...]

    18. Lydia

      This is not only a contemporary romance novel, but also a Christian novel. Daisy wants a date for the prom, despite the fact that her parents will not let her date, much less do much else. Not only are there strict rules on her activities, even though she attends a Christian high school, but her parents believe in being extreme frugal. Daisy bemoans her handmade and Goodwill clothes, which she has worn for all four years of high school. Her best friend Claire is her antithesis: rich, allowed lot [...]

      When I first picked up Perfectly Dateless, I was sure I wouldn't enjoy it because I thought it was just for teenagers. I was wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed Kristin Billerbeck's newest book. Over dessert a couple times, I read excerpts to my family and everyone laughed and cringed where appropriate.The funny thing about this book for me is that I experienced it from both angles; the daughter ashamed of her conservative parents and the mother lecturing her daughters on responsibility, purity, being d [...]

    20. Arielle

      Not the most well written or imaginative book out there, thus the low rating. Also had a drop off ending which I hate. Overall the plot was a little weak. But then again I think it is supposed to be a fluffy teen book so I will be gracious. It was funny though, and made me laugh at the many parts I related too. I think I would have really enjoyed this book (more) when I was in my early teen years. My heart went out for Daisy, I understood how she felt but also understood her parents to a certain [...]

    21. Cheryl

      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 o [...]

    22. Lady

      Very cute and funny and real and constantly heart-fluttering. (view spoiler)[But I'm tired of being betrayed by book boyfriends. This is the second book where everything did not turn out the way it seemed and its no fun at all. (hide spoiler)]. But those are my issues and there's a dozen reasons people would enjoy how this book plays out. I liked that the characters were very human and almost all likable. There wasn't really an evil character even though everyone made bad choices. They also made [...]

    23. Jill Williamson

      Review by Jill WilliamsonDaisy 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 hav [...]

      Kristin Billerbeck fans will love this book! "Perfectly Dateless" follows Daisy Crispin's journey towards getting a date for her senior prom in typical Kristin Billerbeck style: fast dialogue, high drama and humor. On the other hand, I've always felt love-hate feelings towards Billerbeck's works. I always find myself falling in love with the characters and laughing out loud at the humor, but for my perfectionist personality, her books are always a little too disorganized. The dialogue is very tr [...]

    25. Becki

      I don�t know if I just was not in a �Young Adult� fiction state of mind when I read this today or if I just have such high standards for Kristin Billerbeck because I loved her What a Girl Wants books. \nDaisy Crispin is not your average teenage girls. She is smart, but that is about all she has going for her. Her mom makes her clothes, and her parents won�t let her date. But she is determined to go to prom her senior yeard with a date no less. A mix of journal entries and narrative tells [...]

    26. Jenny

      This is a teen novel - so its short, characters are prone to not thinking clearly and all events are exaggerated (like in harry potter when his family feeds him only a bowl of soup. Exaggerated to generate sympathy). Keep that in mind and it is a great book about misjudging others, what really matters in life, and growing up to learn your own mind and heart.It basically revolves around a sheltered christian girl who has never had a date due to dressing different and having very strict parents. S [...]

    27. Stephanie

      I'm not sure if it was because I was extremely busy during the period of time I had this book or because it was just a horrible book that dragged on. I think perhaps a little bit of both. First off, I feel for Miss Daisy Crispin restricted social life (though mine doesn't go to her extreme measures) I feel that this book took forever to get to the point. Was there even a point? I couldn't tell if Daisy liked Chase or Max. Like seriously make up your mind! It all came together at the end when it [...]
