Jack Grammar is a terminally shy senior trying to find a prom date. His friends place an ad in the school paper advertising this, and soon Jack has agreed to go on 24 dates in 7 days to choose his date. Very funny, and it's nice to see one of these from the boy's perspective. ( )

This is a really cute young adult novel about a boy, Jack Grammar, who is trying to find a date for the senior prom. His friends write a personal ad for him to put on the school's website, and the response is overwhelming! The friends narrow the list down from hundreds of girls to just twenty-four, whom Jack must go out with in the last 7 days before prom. Parts of this book are laugh-out-loud funny, and overall it is just a great story that reads well and sticks with you once you're done. ( )

Very fun - I liked that it didn't go the places I anticipated. ( )

A breezy, fun read about a guy, Jack, whose best friends put an ad on his behalf in their school's online newspaper to advertise for a prom date. He has a week to go on 24 dates and find his date to the prom.
As Jack tries to navigate this strange situation, he gets some wise words along the way from the mysterious FancyPants. While his friends have his best interests at heart, they aren't always honest with Jack, whose week pushes his boundaries.
I really liked this line, "The worst thing that people can really do is say 'no' to you. And 'no' isn't that bad because eventually it helps point you in the right direction, I think. Helps you find 'yes'." (254) ( )

24 Girls started out strong, but as I reached the half way point, I realized that I'd slowly begun to care less and less what happened to our hero. It's a really interesting premise, where a likeable guy's best friends post a joke ad for a prom date and he gets a list of possible girls, all of whom are not right in some way because he's been talking to someone called FancyPants online and we all know where that's heading. As much as I enjoyed the opening, it lost steam after the first third and I really didn't care anymore. I skimmed the last part of the book just to find out who FancyPants was. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142405434, Paperback)

There are few things sadder than Jack Grammar’s love life. So when his friends take it upon themselves to get him a date to the prom by placing an intensely humiliating ad in the school paper, they think they are doing him a favor. Jack doesn’t agree. But then the most amazing thing happens: responses to the ad are overwhelming. So overwhelming, in fact, that Jack must narrow the list down. A lot. Not an easy task. Turns out, the girls at City High are quite competitive. From drive-by flashings to breaking and entering to cell phone stalkers, these potential prom dates will stop at nothing to snag the suddenly popular Jack. How will he ever choose just one?
