Reviewed by Cindy Loven

Being raised by parents who are determined you will not make the same mistakes they made, can be miserable.  Just ask Daisy Crispin.  Her parents, who were raised in non-Christian homes, have sheltered Daisy to the point she is now feeling smothered.  Trying to break out and find who Daisy is, though is much harder than she thought.  Urged on by her best friend Claire, she finds that sometimes her ideas and Claire's totally clash. 
Senior year, it is supposed to be your most memorable high school year.  Well Daisy's senior year is shaping up to be exactly that, but for all the wrong reasons.  Keeping a journal about her quest for a date for the senior prom, Daisy begins trying to break the parental chains, she feels are holding her back.  Will she find that ever elusive prom date?  Will her life long crush turn out to be her knight in shining armor? or just a dud?
This book was a good book, it showed that Daisy did stick to her morals and the training with which she was raised, a very encouraging thing for a parent.  But since this book is for teens, it also is a good thing because it shows that sticking to your morals and your standards do pay off.  People will respect you for who you are and what you believe.  I enjoyed this book, and give it a 4 star rating!  259 pages US 9.99 4 stars
