In the third Universally Misunderstood novel, Daisy becomes less of a caricature and more a realistic girl, trying to figure out her place in life and in the world. Her adventures are funny and meaningful at the same time, providing entertainment and food for thought both adults and teens will find relevant to their lives.
In order to complete the requirements for her scholarship to Pepperdine, Daisy Crispin must do some mission work. Since she and her best friend, Claire, plan to go to Argentina to celebrate graduation, she might be able to find a mission opportunity that fits the bill. However, Daisy’s parents decide to join her, and the mission is run by her mother’s former college roommate. Things quickly go downhill — how is Daisy supposed to pay for college when everything is falling apart? (REVELL, Jul., 256 pp., $12.99)
