Perfectly Invisible

CBR Review:
Daisy Crispin is back again.  It is the last few months of her senior year, and she has survived the prom, (read Perfectly Dateless) and she is ready to finish up high school spectacularly and wants to be remembered.  It seems the harder she tries to show others why she is special, she becomes more invisible. Until a car shows up on the school with someone declaring their love for Daisy.  She has no clue who has done this crazy act, but she does know that whoever did it, couldn't truly love her because this act is causing her mega trouble.  Daisy is still pining for Max, her dance partner from the prom, but he seems to have a think going for Claire, Daisy's best friend.  This is breaking the ultimate girl rule, Daisy is betrayed or so she thinks.  I enjoyed this book, but it was really a bit over the top for me.  I felt bad for Daisy, because her parent's seemed unreasonable about many things, even the grandparents agreed.  But I also wanted to shake some sense into Daisy, because she tried to make everything about her.  I understand that is the normal thing for kids that age (I have a child who graduated this year).  This book was a quick read and was enjoyable.  I give it a 4 star rating!

Press Release:


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.
