Dating Do-Over - Wendy Lawton Christian fiction (purchased for my daughter), about the efforts Bailey goes makes to get a date for the senior prom. Marketed as teen fiction, but the print size and plot depth suggest 12-15 year-olds rather than the YA's who will be reading Twilight. I would have enjoyed it as a teen, but reading it as a parent, I found the plot somewhat predictable and a bit moralistic in the same way that old Baywatch episodes are. But that doesn't lessen the fact that the writing, characterisation and plot are all fine, and it's good for teens to learn that life doesn't revolve around having a date.Four stars because it does the job well (and I'd rather she learnt about dating from this kind of book than from Twilight).
