THE DATING GAME
Believing she's been chosen for a Survivor-type reality show, Mattie Grant is horrified to learn that she's the star of "Love and the Average Jill." High heels, designer dresses and a dozen eligible men are scarier to Mattie than spiders and snakes, and even handsome contestant David Bennett isn't enough of a distraction. But there's a substantial prize, and the soccer league Mattie chairs needs the money. All she has to do is last for a week -- and she just might, with David's help. Shirley Jump's The Dating Game (3) is all about the characters. Every one is fun and fresh, especially delightful, non-girly Mattie.
