I was given this book by a good friend and at first I was afraid I was maybe a little too old for it, but in the end I really loved it! I think that the trio of Mads, Lina and Holly make up a great group of friends and you really feel a quick attachment to all three, mainly because they go thru such believeable issues. Who hasnt felt the crush of being dumped? Or worried that your kissing technique wasnt turning a guy on? The idea of a teen speed dating event I think would be totally believeable in real life. I would love to try and get something like that started at my school. Now I hope my friend gives me more of this series so I can keep up with the girls!

We have all heard, or seen, the crazy world of adults dating. From blind dates to speed dating, it may all seem too desperate. But speed dating for teenagers? Mads, Lina, and Holly are back in this fifth installment of THE DATING GAME series. After the unfair events of parents wanting to shut down the website, the girls are ready to take it to the next level. Instead of having to pair couples up by using information about each person submitted to the website, they decide to let their classmates do the talking by creating speed dating. So they set up their plans at the widely popular Vineland Café, and invite kids from their school to meet and greet the opposite sex. Each person writes comments about whoever they meet so that Mads, Lina, and Holly are able to pair them up perfectly.

But the new addition to the website isn't the only thing that the girls have to worry about. Mads is definitely trying to learn to kiss her boyfriend, Stephen, the right way, without him having to pull away. Lina has to deal with the consequences when she starts to write about the very familiar couple Tess and Peter in her new blog. And the newly single Holly has to decide if the guy she accidentally met at the speed dating event is real or not. The girls are definitely back with much bigger problems than before.

SPEED DATING was a great addition to this page-turning series. Although some of the important characters from previous novels do not make their way into this story as much as before, Mads, Lina, and Holly still keep your attention. After reading this novel, SPEED DATING sounds better than ever.
