The Oracle Rebounds

Kayla knows about wisdom and advice for they don’t call her the oracle of dating for nothing. Yet everything changes when her long-time beau Jared dumps her. The thing is that lately even as the Oracle she doesn’t know what to do at this time. She never expected for this happen especially since she thought everything was going okay. Everybody around her doesn’t know her real identity but when a controversial conversation comes-up she knows it is time to reveal her true self. Through all the heartache of the debacle Jared stays in her life making her wonder if the breakup was necessary. She has no idea what to do now but knows that if she keeps the oracle a secret any longer people will hate her. Can she reveal her identity or just pretend like nothing has happened?

The Oracle Rebounds by Allison Van Diepen was a rare treat to read about considering this is the first time I have read anything from this author. Allison definitely knows about dating and The Oracle was hilarious all the way. It had a sense of Carrie Bradshaw mixed with Sweet Valley High yet came out a little bit better. I loved that Kayla is just a teenager yet has everybody’s problems on her shoulders. Now Jared is definitely the man for her but is confused about his main priorities. Together these two are typical sweethearts yet Allison shows us that even young love can conquer anything. The Oracle Rebounds is definitely a great book to read for every young teen out there.
