St. James Academy Seeks Culprit In Rooftop Incident…
TEXT MESSAGE FROM: DAISY CRISPIN
TO: MOLLY CRISPIN
MOM, help me! I’m in big trouble, come back to school now! Daisy
Award-winning author Kristen Billerbeck returns with another story about Daisy Crispin in Perfectly Invisible (ISBN: 978-0-8007-7913-9. $9.99, 272 pages, July 2011). A lot is happening in Daisy’s senior year of high school. Daisy faces many ups and downs as she tries to finish her final year in high school being a normal teen in a not so normal environment. She wants to stand up for her faith when others don’t care about theirs. Readers will relate to the situations Daisy encounters at school, at home, and in the work place and how she deals with them.
It’s Daisy’s final three months of high school, and she plans to make it count. Her grades should secure a scholarship to the college of her dreams and she loves her job. Daisy is in control of everything, or is she? Her handsome boyfriend, Max is treating her like she’s invisible, and her best friend, Claire is selling bad costume jewelry in the school quad–and hanging out with Daisy’s boyfriend. To top it off, Daisy’s major humiliation for the year will be remembered in the yearbook for all eternity. Then comes the crushing news…it’s enough to make Daisy wonder if maybe being invisible isn’t so bad after all.
With more of the funny-but-true-to-life 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.
Daisy’s back and working on a perfect woman journal. Now, we know she’s not going to achieve perfection, but it’s certainly fun to watch her try.
Daisy’s senior year of high school is filled with one disaster after another. We saw the beginnings of this in Perfectly Dateless. It continues. The harder she tries to keep her life under control, the more interesting it becomes.
I certainly would like to continue on with Daisy’s adventures, so here’s hoping there will be another book showcasing Daisy and her friend Claire. I can see this book leading into that.
BTW You might need a tissue or two at the end of the book.
