Our customer reviews

THE ORACLE OF DATING was a fun and flirty start to what I'm sure will be a great new series. The main character, Kayla, was extremely likable and I loved being able to read about her different experiences. She always kept a level head and never let anyone get the best of her. In addition to Kayla, she had a great group of friends who always supported her. They were a diverse group who went together perfectly. Each of them was unique and realistic, and Ms. van Diepen did a great job of getting into the head of a modern high school student. One of my favorite aspects of the novel was reading about Kayla's website - The Oracle of Dating. She gave out great advice and the website was such a huge part of her life. I understood how she wanted to keep it a secret, but I was happy her sister was in on it. Tracey was another fantastic character. She and Kayla had a great relationship, even though at times Kayla seemed like she was the older one, always giving Tracey advice and being a shoulder to lean on when her relationships didn't work out. The author has a great writing style and the book contained some serious sides, as well. Although Kayla spent a lot of her time giving out dating advice, she'd personally only had two failed relationships. Luckily, Jared enters the picture. I loved Jared. He was the perfect mix of sweet and bad boy that kept both Kayla and the reader guessing. It was great watching their relationship develop, and I was crossing my fingers that everything would work out for them. Overall, THE ORACLE OF DATING was a great - and original - novel that left me eager to start the sequel, THE ORACLE REBOUNDS, and to see what happens to Kayla and her friends next. I highly recommend picking this one up!show more

The Oracle of Dating is an adorable young adult novel! It has a set of great characters, an interesting storyline, and some really cool dating advices! It's better than I'd expected! Kayla is an ordinary girl who has had two disastrous relationships before. She cleverly uses her knowledge about love relationships to create a website specialized to help teens in their love life. She is the oh-so-famous Oracle of Dating, and no one even knows it. She has a serious crush on fellow art class classmate, Jared, but is unsure about how he feels for her. Her best friend Viv is an Indian girl whose her parents will only let her date an Indian boy. The problem is, she is in love with a guy with white skin, and she doesn't know what to do. And so, she consults The Oracle of Dating. Kayla, being so excited about her friend's feelings, urges her to follow her heart. And so Viv does. When Viv's parents know about this, they decides to ground her for 6 weeks and Kayla starts to blame herself for this. Kayla, being a sister, is very protective of her older sister Tracey, who has been hurt a lot of times in love relationships. Kayla also gives advices to her sister and I can see that she really cares about Tracey. She can be pejorative sometimes, especially when it comes to love relationships. I love to see how Kayla's character grows as she learns about the things in life. I also enjoyed the presence of Jared because he sounds so amazing and is just the perfect match for Kayla. He is not a pushy or possessive guy, but acts just nice - like a friend, with a liking and closeness that is not overboard. They are such a sweet couple! :) Through this book, I can see that the author does have a great sense of humour. I laughed when I read this book because the descriptions of the scenes and the character's inner thoughts are quite hilarious sometimes. As most young adult novels, this book has no lacking of popular but mean characters. Overall, this was a fun, absorbing and out of the ordinary book. I'm now patiently waiting for the sequel, The Oracle Rebounds! I certainly won't miss it!show more
