From the Back Cover

Daisy's ready for summer fun--but it seems summer has something else in store.

High school is over, and Daisy Crispin is happy to leave it in her past and look forward to a bright new future at college. In the meantime, she is planning an all-expenses-paid trip with her best friend Claire to Argentina--home of exotic food, the tango, and her handsome sort-of boyfriend Max.

When Daisy discovers she needs to do missions work to fulfill the requirements of her scholarship, she chalks it up to her monumental bad luck in life and kisses her vacation goodbye. What was supposed to be a relaxing time in the lap of luxury turns into hard work, sleeping on a cot, avoiding scorpions, and stressing about where she stands with Max. Daisy wonders if anything in her life will ever go according to plan . . .

After reading <em>Perfectly Dateless</em>, I knew I would want to read the next <strong>Universally Misunderstood</strong> novel. I loved the way Billerbeck blended humor, romance and a good Christian message in with complex and witty characters. It was a captivating novel to say the least. So, I sat down with this next <strong>Misunderstood</strong> novel and well....I was once again highly intrigued and swept away! Billerbeck's characters are back and just as witty and charming as previously. I loved every minute of this novel!

Daisy is off to college....or so she thinks. There's a catch to her attending, though. She has to complete a mission trip for two weeks, and then she'll have a full ride with a scholarship. Well, that's an ultimate that quickly turns ridiculous! She decides to incorporate a vacation into the required mission, and things go really haywire from there!

Daisy's thinking is quite like mine.....take care of two things at once and be done. Right? Wrong!!! When she arrives in Argentina, she's trying to come to terms with her boyfriend (on again/off again....sort of!) Max, and have a little fun in an exotic land. But, as she quickly realizes, things aren't what they seem and she really needs to sit down and make up her mind about herself and where she stands in life.

With amazing messages from God, and learning to deal with the complications of life and education, making commitments and embracing the world for what it is, Ms. Billerbeck has created a fabulous 5 Book worthy novel. I highly recommend this for Young Adults and Adults, alike. You'll be swept away into the perfectly ridiculous and often misunderstood world of Daisy, her maybe boyfriend Max and all her friends! I am looking forward to another <strong>Misunderstood</strong> novel soon! Well done, Ms. Billerbeck!

Format: Paperback
Perfectly Ridiculous by Kristin Billerbeck is the third book in the YA fiction Universally Misunderstood series. Daisy Crispin is finally done with high school and looks forward to a bright future as a finance major in college. To add to her happiness, her best friend's parents are giving an all-expenses-paid trip to beautiful Argentina! As an added bonus, Argentina is where her extremely attractive sort-of boyfriend, Max, lives! Some summer fun, independence from her well meaning but slightly overbearing parents, and the possibility of an innocence foreign romance! What more could a girl ask for?

But, of course, things never turn out as Daisy expects, as we have seen in the last two books.

Soon, a letter arrives in the mail dictating that Daisy cannot get her scholarship for four years at the university unless she completes two weeks of mission work. Bye bye tango lessons, exotic tours, spa days, and Argentinian steak... Or is it? Daisy soon comes up with a compromise. One week helping with a rural VBS program and another week enjoying her vacation in paradise? Sounds like the perfect plan, right?

Or... it could be perfectly ridiculous.

This book is so refreshingly real. I mean, true, most girls don't go to Argentina, have parents who are as eccentric as Daisy's, and have an affluent best friend, but the dialogue and Daisy's inner thoughts are just so spot on! Daisy's quirks makes this book even more endearing to the point that she feels like a real person! I believe teenage girls will absolutely relate and love the witty, and honestly, brilliant writing. I also love books with a big-impact lesson.

Daisy Crispin is happy to leave high school behind and is looking forward to starting new in college. Before she goes away she is planning an all-expenses-paid trip with her best friend Claire to Argentina. She can't wait to sink her teeth in some exotic food, watch the tango, and possibly assess the relationship between her and her sort-of boyfriend, Max.

Her vacation comes to a screeching halt when she learns that she has to do missions work to fulfill the requirements for her college scholarship, not to mention her parents insist on coming with her. Now what was supposed to be a relaxing time in the lap of luxury turns into hard work, cots, avoiding scorpions, and stressing about her relationship with Max.

However, as she learns what life is like in true poverty, she becomes thankful for her life surrounded by toilet paper, homemade close, and too much family stuffed into one home. She also meets a boy who shows her what a healthy relationship can look like. If only she could forget Max and start something that doesn't make her feel less than worthy.

Can Daisy finish her scholarship requirement or will she be stuck not going? Will Daisy learn to put more trust in God or will she rely on herself her whole life? Will trouble find her like it always does or will she finally have some time that's trouble free? Will she be able to move on from Max or will she still allow him to have some hold over her?
----------------------------------

Having never read a book by this author, let alone this series, I didn't know what to expect. What I got was a book filled with adventure and trouble.
