Grade 7–10—In this import from Great Britain, best friends Zoe and Chloe are desperate to find dates to accompany them to the Earthquake Ball (a fund-raiser for disaster victims). The problem is that all of the young men they know are "so immature they're practically fetuses!" Zoe's father unwittingly poses a solution: advertise in a want ad. The results, along with other madcap adventures—including Zoe's embarrassing encounters with the boy of her dreams and a nightmarish babysitting gig—will have readers laughing out loud. Limb makes the most of each comic situation with fast-paced text sprinkled with dialogue that often incorporates British slang and strong language. This funny episodic novel by the author of Girl, 15: Charming but Insane
(Delacorte, 2004) will appeal to fans of British chick lit.—Susan Riley, Mount Kisco Public Library, NY
