1.) My parents bought me this book at my Middle School book fair.

2.) The story took place during the school year, and mostly at a High School or just around the town they lived in.

3.) Mads, Holly, and Lina all had both internal and external problems they had to deal with. One that all of them shared is with Sean. Mads has a huge crash on Sean but Sean likes Holly but Holly didn't know what to do about. This got Holly and Mads into a fight, and Lina is stuck in the middle of them fighting.

4.) -Ho

PARALLEL PARKING is the sixth book in the DATING GAME series. The whole series is funny and lighthearted. It's a great book to read if you feel like reading something that is not long and drug out and depressing. This book is the total opposite of that!

Holly, Lina, and Madison are up to more mischief with their uber-popular website that they started as a school project. Holly and Madison have to take driver's education this semester so that they can

Burn it. Burn this book and any books related to it. I couldn't get through maybe more than 20 or 30 pages of this terrible book. It's so corny I was gagging. I'm not trying to be mean, but seriously...

Did kids get more mellow-dramatic since I graduated high school? I mean it wasn't that long ago. Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention.

This...this just makes me want to scream. If kids are this wrapped up in their dating lives or are this touchy, then society is doomed as we know it.

In the Dating Game, by Natalie Standiford, a group of teenagers in high school start a dating game. The objective of the dating game is to match people in their school up with whoever they might be compatible with. I can describe this book in one word. BORING! The book has no specific plot. I would not recommend this book to anyone!

An overall smashing finale to The Dating Game...but it NEEDS a sequel. It's just crying out for one. It examines possible love situations for Ramona and Holly, as well as (a little) Mads, and the only thing that was really wrong with it was...what happened to Holly's boyfriend from the last book?!

This is a really good series, but this particular one I didn't like as much as the other ones...i think that the first one was the best.

Girls always want a prince, in this book they move a little to fast with their guy friends. But overall A great way to end the series.

this book actually isn't that bad. Totally geared to the teens, maybe 13ish. But if your into highschool drama, this has it.
