Editorial Reviews

"Campbell's work will appeal to adults as well as to teens who enjoy romantic comedies."

— CM Magazine

"This is great for adult newcomers to reading or the English language as well as anyone who enjoys zipping through a lighthearted read in a single, short sitting."

— Booklist

"Melodie Campbell is the Queen of the Rapid Read…Worst Date Ever is one the best of this genre. Like all her novels the dialogue is the driving force. This tale is funny, but Campbell finds the sad notes, the desperate moves and the gentle poignancy when two people realize that what they wanted was right in front of them. Finding a complete story like this in a novella form is rare…This rapid read is more than a good read."

— Canadian Mystery Reviews
