Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–When the love of his life rejects his invitation to the senior prom, Jack Grammar's so-called best friends pose as Jack and run a personal ad in the online school newspaper soliciting a date. At first, the teen is not amused, but he agrees to go along with the plan because his friends have a list of girls eager to go out with him. In fact, it is hard to avoid the young ladies who descend on him without warning. The result is a hilarious adventure as Jack tries to speed-date 24 girls in 7 days. The author cleverly gives just enough details about each girl's personality to make her a real character, and these girls are characters. The adults are wonderful role models without being didactic. As if dating isn't enough, Jack has to contend with a mysterious online pen pal who gives him dating advice. The author superbly keeps up the suspense about the big day to the very end. This entertaining guy's-eye view on dating, friendship, and understanding one's self is one that most libraries will want to own.–Linda L. Plevak, Saint Mary's Hall, San Antonio, TX --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

Gr. 8-11. When Jack Grammar was little, his sisters used to dress up and pretend he was their prom date. Now it is two weeks until his senior prom, something he's looked forward to since those days of pretend, and he is dateless. But Natalie and Percy, his two best friends, have a solution. Unbeknownst to Jack, they post an ad in the school's online newspaper and the challenge is on. Who will be Jack Grammar's prom date? Amid much angst, hilarity, and plot twists, Jack dates and discards girl after girl until the fateful day when he must choose. Bradley captures the trials of many nice-guy teenage boys, who are insecure in today's high-school culture of dating and in need of an infusion of self-confidence. Jack and his friends are fully developed characters, full of promise and senioritis. Although the girls who court Jack border on stereotypes, the descriptive details are dead on. A satisfying dose of humor and reality in a "boy romance" that many readers may enjoy but are too embarrassed to request. Frances Bradburn

A Kid's Review on March 25, 2005
Format: Hardcover
I just finished this book..its the coolest..and it's really funny too and keeps you guessing.

You are going to wonder throughout the book who Jack will take to prom--altho some obviously won't get picked judging by the dates which provides the humor in the book.

The story basically is Jack has a lousy date life and then his friends place an ad for him to get a prom date and they get around 40 applicants and narrow the list down to 24 for him to date in 7 days..hence the title. Throughout the book Jack keeps getting e-mails from a "Fancypants" who he is mysteriously drawn too but she won't say who she is..read the book and find out which one of Jacks ladies "Fancypants" is and who he will take to prom! I highyl recommend this book--especially if you are looking for a fun summer read.

Jack Grammar wants nothing more than to go to the prom with his dream girl Pamela. But when he blows his chance, his best friends Natalie and Percy take matters into their own hands. They place an ad in the school paper declaring what a great prom date Jack would make. What started out as a semi-joke turns into to a full fledge date-a-thon with the many applicants vying for Jack's affection and chance to go to prom. The situation seems like every guys dream, but Jack isn't having much fun. In fact, he's more interested in talking to the mysterious FancyPants whose been sending him anonymous e-mails and making out with his best friend.

I couldn't put this book down trying to figure out who would be his ultimate prom date. Jack is a great character. Girl readers will fall in love with him and boy readers will find him relatable. This hilarious book is one you shouldn't pass up!

A Kid's Review on April 11, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Book Review- 24 girls in 7 days

The book 24 girls in 7 days is about a senior boy names Jack Grammar in high school who does not want to go to prom. He feels that prom is just a waste of time and since he can not go with the one girl he dreams of going with there is no reason at all. Then one day he reads the school newspaper and finds an add posted by his two best friends Percy and Natalie about him saying he needs a date to the prom and anyone who would like to accompany him may e-mail him. After what seemed to be forever Jack had gone through some hard times and then decides he doesn?t want to go to the prom but he then decides to go with this one girl who has had him on her mind all week.

24 girls in 7 days clearly had too many good parts to name one as just my favorite. However I have to narrow it down it would be when Jack finally finds out who Fancy Pants is. Not only did the book make Jack anxious but it made me anxious too. The whole book all I wanted to know was who Fancy Pants was and why was she giving Jack all this advice. However once Jack and I start getting clues and putting them together like pieces of a puzzle we both come to a conclusion of who this mysterious girl is. Not only was it a relief but it was a good feeling too, and it was a main part in the story.

Out of the many books like 24 girls in 7 days or similar books I have read this one would have to be up at the top of my list. First of all right from the beginning when it was explained in class I knew this would be an interesting book, just the way of the set-up. Another thing is that this book clearly kept me reading. So many things went on in the book all I wanted to do was to know what was going to happen.

24 girls in 7 days. It's every teenage boy's fantasy, or is it? Jack Grammar is just an average kid with straight A's and two best friends. As the end of his senior year creeps closer, so does prom and Jack is desperate for a date. He's never really had a girlfriend and is extremely shy, so after getting turned down by his longtime crush, his best friends Natalie and Percy decide to help him. Without Jack's knowledge, they post a personals add for him on the school's website, and surprisingly, they soon have over 100 responses to it. Percy and Natalie convince Jack to participate in a "Bachelor"-like competiton in which 24 girls are chosen to go on dates with him. There are only 7 days until prom, and Jack must choose one lucky girl to be his date. The adventure that follows is full of kisses, insults, icecream, and a whole lot of surprises.

24 Girls in 7 Days is by far one of the best books I have ever read. I literally did not put it down until I had finished the whole thing. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, the storyline twisted. That's what turns a good story into a great one. This book is outright hilarious, and really shows how you can change your life for the better. I would most definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for love, because it goes to show that sometimes love can be found where you least expect it.
