Kudos, Dayla Moon! This was one of the best romantic comedies I've ever read. Peridot has so much attitude and spunk! This novel is about the 18 year old Peridot, a waitress at The Whistle, who is trying to find a boyfriend and lose her virginity. Through it all, she tries to become more "normal" and "authentic", cutting off her dreadlocks and wearing less punk rock clothes. Peridot snags the attentions of Marc and Cooper though she can't decide who she likes more. On the flip side, after each date, Marc and Cooper both give her mixed signals because they themselves can't figure their emotions either. Then in comes best friend issues, a brother who eats a bag of pot, a father with ADD, and a rockstar mother, what's a girl got to do to snag some man meat??

This following quote is one of the out-of-the-box descriptions Dayla uses in her story that I think works to provide such a good character description of Peridot. I had a burst of the giggles when I first read this in context. After Peridot had her dreadlocks cut off and washed her hair in the shower:

"I didn't want it to go down the drain and mess up the ancient pipes in our house, so I plastered a clump of my hair against the tile wall in the shower, to be retrieved later. The clump looked like a furry little monster, so I made him a smaller clump as a friend."

What I Liked: The humor and snarkiness of Peridot's interactions plus all the little side dramas aka. Courtney/Britain, Donny/Toph, Ginger, Uncle Jeff, etc. I also like that Peridot's family is so dysfunctionally funny, with Garnet talking about squeezing man boobs to her Dad punching people in the face.

What I Didn't Like: There were a couple spelling problems in my version that I downloaded from Dayla's e-mail attachment.

5/5 for a romantic comedy!

Perry is an 18 year old with issues. Between her rock star mom and her ADD dad there is enough drama but throw in her bestfriends new gf hating her and her little brother being - well a little brother it's enough to make any sane person snap. During all this she makes it her mission to get her first boyfriend and finally get some of that "love" stuff for herself. I love how Perry is brutally honest and makes no apology for who she is, I do believe she's a little bit my hero.

When Perry's mother goes off leaving her in charge of her father and brother she decides to find a boyfriend. Her first step is getting rid of her dreadlocks. This was a very fun and funny read. I loved the interaction between Perry and and her father and brother. I think I liked it more than Practice Cake which was set in the same time and place but both are stand alone books. There were A LOT of current pop culture references which will date in in the future but still worth reading.

I won this book from member librarything giveaways in exchange for an honest review.

Smart Mouth Waitress is one in a series of books by Dayla Moon that stars different characters. Peridot, or Perry, is the protagonist in this book. We watch her as she stumbles through her romantic life, deals with absent parents, and tries to act as the "mother" to her father and brother. She also deals with her lesbian friend getting a girlfriend.

Perry is someone I'd like to know. We have a lot in common. We both like Margaret Cho. We both laugh at the comedian Russell Peters. We make snarky comments to make people laugh. We feel lonely when people we care about forget us and move on with their lives. I believe the fact that we as readers can relate to her (or at least I can) is the strength of this novel.

However, this novel read more like a blog than a book, and I could only take doses of it at a time. In fact, I feel like I would like to read her opinions on things and why she thinks certain things more than how ridiculous her love life is getting (or at least only read about it once in a day). At points, I just didn't get why she continued to pursue either guy. This novel treads very familiar ground, and I suppose every romantic comedy is supposed to take certain steps. I just didn't want it to be so formulaic.

That said, this novel was very readable with an interesting protagonist.

Perry decides she's ready for love so she brushes out her white girl dreads and turns on the charm at her job as a Smartmouth waitress at The Whistle. Although three guys in particular immediately take notice, can any one of them handle a girl who speaks her mind before even she's aware of what she's thinking?

I cracked up so many times, and wished I was cool enough to be Perry's friend. I also had to reread it as soon as I finished bc I didn't want it to end.

Definitely the best free download I've picked up. I'm definitely planning on checking out Ms. Moon's other titles!

This was light, warm, entertaining reading. Gave a nice sense of Vancouver for a start. Following Peridot's quest for love, her family life, friendship with her best friend, interactions at The Whistle et cetera were full of surprises, laughs and the ups and downs associated with the life of a teenager entering adulthood. Some years since I've been that age but a book like this does help keep one in touch with younger days! Witty and well written, the author has done a fantastic job with this.
