Blind Date by Melody Carlson

About the Book:

When it comes to being set up on a blind date, true friends can be trusted . . .
Or can they?
Devon, Emma, Cassidy, Bryn, and Abby are ready for their next Dating Games challenge: setting each other up on blind dates for the upcoming masquerade ball.

But trouble is brewing. Some of the girls are questioning whether their friends can be trusted to deliver on their promises. In fact, there's a very real danger that this dating treat could turn into a nasty trick.

Will their club--and their friendships--survive?

My Thoughts:

I'm finally far enough from my teenaged years that I can't remember all of the antics my friends and I found ourselves caught up in back then.  But I trust Melody Carlson to have her finger on the pulse of teen girlhood, and I would have loved to be a part of a club like The Dating Games.

Just maybe not for this particular story!

This time the girls are setting each other up with blind dates for a costume dance at the local high school.  They drew names, and no one is supposed to have a clue which girl is fixing up which friend of the five, nor with whom she is being set up with for the big dance.

The talk of costumes and characters from literature was fun, but the angst of who would be who's date and if it would destroy friendships...yeah, I don't miss those days at all.  But there is strength in numbers, and when you get in with the right group of friends, you can weather just about anything.

When those friends love Jesus, your group can become unstoppable.  Which is just the kind of friends Devon will need to get her through her "Blind Date".  My thanks to my friends at Revell Publishing for my advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is great summer-by-the-pool reading...and don't forget to pick up the first book in the series as well ("First Date")!

Happy Reading!
