“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 that always supported her. They were a diverse group who went together perfectly. Each of them was unique and realistic and Allison 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.
Allison has a great writing style and The Oracle of Dating contained some serious sides as well. Although Kayla spent a lot of her time giving out dating advice, she'd only had two failed relationships. Luckily, Jared enters the picture. I loved Jared. He was the perfect mix of sweet, 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 and to see what happens to Kayla and her friends next. I highly recommend picking this up!
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
