Natalie standiford dating game the 1 dating game
This debut book in the Dating Game series gets its title from an online site that a trio of best friends design for a 10th-grade project, trying to prove that "boys think about sex more than girls." As they prepare quizzes and play matchmaker for themselves and their peers, each of the three struggles with her own romantic dilemma.Madison wants more sexual experience, poetic Lina is in love with her teacher, and curvy Holly has a wild reputation.
When The Dating Game web site they create for a sophomore class project is a smash hit, they become the matchmaking masters of their schooland, they hope, their own lives.This will appeal to high school girls who like "chick lit," and you can feel good recommending it to them.Even though the girls eventually admit "our scientific technique is not exactly airtight here," it's hard to understand how some of the materials relate to their project.Yet the girls' struggles come across as authentic, and the writing can be both funny and honest (especially Holly's painful experience with "the double standard, how it was good for boys to have a wild rep and bad for girls").
Overall, readers will probably find enough to laugh about and relate to as the trio plans-and plays-The Dating Game. They all have goals for the semester: Madison wants to go out with hot senior Sean Benedetto; Lina wants her teacher Dan to fall in love with her; and Holly just wants everyone to stop calling her Boobmeister.As a project for Dan's health class, the girls set up a website where their classmates can answer sex quizzes and be matched up on blind dates with each other.
