Book Review

by Lynda Sandoval

Genre: Young Adult

RT Rating

Some books are supposed to teach lessons; others are just about having a good time. Sandoval's latest takes the latter route, with a lighthearted story about three girls searching for—what else?—a boyfriend.

The real charm of this book is in the language. Sandoval has a real talent for giving her characters snappy dialogue that makes an otherwise basic statement hilarious.

Lila, Meryl and Caressa have a
problem—their fathers. The girls' dads
are so intimidating that they're sure
they'll keep them from ever getting a date. Lila's dad is
the chief of police
in their Colorado town; Meryl's dad is, among other things, her school's dean
of discipline; and Caressa's dad is a famous musician. The girls do everything they can think of—including staging a Celtic ritual—to try to attract guys. But sometimes you can't choose who you end up with—fate decides for you.
