The Oracle of Dating
Allison Van Diepen
For five bucks, the Oracle of Dating will tell you:
How to flirt
If that cute guy your crushing on likes you too
Whether your new romance will last through lunch period
And much more
What she won't tell you? Who she is.
No one at Kayla's school knows she's the famous Oracle of dating--the anonymous queen of dating advice. She doesn't even have a boyfriend. Two relationship disasters were enough to make Kayla focus on everyone Else's love life. But then her advice backfires on her best friend. And Kayla starts to seriously obsess of Jard Stewart--the very cute, very mysterious new guy in school. Suddenly the teen queen of advice needs her own oracle of dating--and she knows just where to kind one...
OK, this book made me laugh out loud. The Oracle of Dating is about Kayla's crazy life of giving people romance advice, and having as little romance for herself as possible. Although that proves difficult when she begins to sneak an extra peek at Jared next to her, and put his name behind a bunch of What-ifs. Kayla was a likable, funny character who had quirks and insecurities just like any other teenage girl. She wondered things that normal girls wonder. Does he like me, how to I talk to him, how do I feel?
All her friends are funny characters as well, from Viv to Amy to Ryan and Sharese. They were all real characters, and even though they were side ones, I wanted to get to know them. If they were real, I'd have them as friends! They supported her through her rough times and she tried hard to help them in return. Which is what friendship is really about.
Now Jared, is awesome. He's cute and caring but mysterious and brooding. He doesn't care what people think about him, and even as a guy, he's unsure of what to do in a relationship. He worries and wonders like an normal teenage boy would.
The Oracle of Dating is a funny, light-hearted book that will make you smile and giggle and grin.
