Daisy Crispin has 196 days to find a prom date, but does she stand a chance when her “countercultural (read: weird)” parents (her mother makes all her clothes and her father delivers singing telegrams) won’t allow her to date? Tired of being perfect in their eyes, the unpopular senior starts a prom journal to devise a plan for normalcy and the dance. But after narrowing her list to her crush since kindergarten, why does she keep pondering the transfer student from Argentina? As in Billerbeck’s popular Ashley Stockingdale series for adults, witty musings and snappy dialogue form the rock of her Christian YA chick-lit debut. Grades 8-12. --Angela Leeper

is hilarious, shocking, and totally real. You'll fall in love with Daisy's sharp wit and resourcefulness as she navigates the world of boys, fashion, family, and friendship.
