Perfectly Invisible...Review

About the book:
It's Daisy Crispin's final trimester of high school, and she plans to make it count. Her long-awaited freedom is mere months away, and her big plans for college loom in the future. Everything is under control. Or is it? Her boyfriend is treating her like she's invisible, and her best friend is selling bad costume jewelry in the school quad—and hanging out with her boyfriend. To top it off, Daisy's major humiliation for the year will be remembered in the yearbook for all eternity. It's enough to make her wonder if maybe being invisible isn't so bad after all.

With more of the funny-but-too-true writing readers have come to expect from Kristin Billerbeck,
Perfectly Invisible shows teen girls that everyone is special—no matter what they're going through.

This is a sequel to Perfectly Dateless which I haven't read.  I don't know if it is intended to stand alone, but there are references to past events and I always felt like I was missing something.  I never connected with any of the characters and quite frankly, didn't even like them. I couldn't understand Daisy and Claire's friendship, especially since Claire isn't even very nice to Daisy. The book is full of high school drama and the Christian elements are light.  Perhaps I'm just too old for Teen/YA books now.  I don't know.

Still, I think that fans of Kristin Billerbeck will probably enjoy this, especially if they've read Perfectly Dateless.  It was cute, but not one I ultimately enjoyed. 

Available July 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.  Thanks to Donna at Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about Kristin Billerbeck here.  You can purchase your own copy here.
