Praise for The Dating Games #1: First Date

"Forget about The Hunger Games! The Dating Games # 1: First Date, by Melody Carlson, is the new series to which you should be drawn."--The Celebrity Cafe

"Not all characters are religious, but all love and respect their parents and sincerely try to form real friendships even when jealousy strikes. It's all completely innocent and will be a welcome book for those uncomfortable with more frank fiction for teens. Perfect for young Christian readers and fine for others too."--Kirkus Reviews

"Questions about friendship and Christian values are presented realistically but not overwhelmingly, and teen readers will be entertained by the drama and excitement. . . . A fast read and amusing story that ends with more adventures to come."--RT Book Reviews

Praise for The Dating Games #2: Blind Date

"Cassidy, Emma, Bryn, Abby, and Devon continue to be quite a diverse group of friends who often delve into frenemy territory, creating stress and drama that mirrors the teenage experience. Their struggle over how to treat Devon when she takes steps in a negative direction demonstrates how we should be forgiving and patient in imitation of Christ."--RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

"I always say it, but Melody's grip on teens and the way they think astounds me every time."--Christian Manifesto
