Perfectly Ridiculous by Kristin Billerbeck
Genre: Christian Young Adult Fiction
Pages: Trade Paperback
Publisher: Revell Books
Daisy’s ready for summer fun–but it seems summer has something else in store.
High school is over, and Daisy Crispin is happy to leave it in her past and look forward to a bright new future at college. In the meantime, she is planning an all-expenses-paid trip with her best friend Claire to Argentina–home of exotic food, the tango, and her handsome sort-of boyfriend Max.
When Daisy discovers she needs to do missions work to fulfill the requirements of her scholarship, she chalks it up to her monumental bad luck in life and kisses her vacation goodbye. What was supposed to be a relaxing time in the lap of luxury turns into hard work, sleeping on a cot, avoiding scorpions, and stressing about where she stands with Max. Daisy wonders if anything in her life will ever go according to plan . . .
Kristin does it to me every time and I cannot wait for more. I’m on a bit of an action-thriller kick and I did not want to read a young adult novel this week, but the tour is now and I needed to get it accomplished. Low and behold of course once I start I cannot stop and I’m incapable of putting the book down and all I want to do is turn the next page. I loved Perfectly Dateless and I was glad to see that I enjoyed Perfectly Invisible even more, but now I have to say that Perfectly Ridiculous is my favorite in the series. Each novel does add on the one before, but I think you might be able to get away with reading it alone.
She touches on the heart of what every teenage girl has felt in wanting that connection. I think it is definitely a recommended read and one I’ll save for my daughters. Just like the rest of the series. I hope that she’ll write more like these in the future.
