Review of The Oracle Rebounds by Allison Van Diepen
To Be Released: November 1, 2010
5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “As the “oracle of dating,” Kayla is supposed to have all the answers about love and relationships. She’s supposed to have the perfect relationship. But now that Jared is “taking a step back,” Kayla feels like a total fraud.
So the expert on dating starts taking her own rebound advice—and some from her friends—and stops moping around. Yeah, there are other possibilities out there—including the beyond-cute French foreign exchange student she’s showing around town. But when controversy erupts about the Oracle’s advice, Kayla is sent reeling once again. Will anything work out for her this year? Yet when her friends start seriously needing the Oracle, Kayla begins to focus on what really matters: Viv, Sharese, Amy and Ryan, her trueblue buds. And suddenly, everything starts making sense again…”
The Oracle Rebounds by Allison Van Diepen continues the story of Kayla and her friends as she continues to find herself as a person. The Oracle Of Dating showed readers how complicated and messy liking someone can be if both party’s aren’t communicating very well. And in the end we as readers get to see Kayla and Jared happy together and The Oracle of Dating website booming again. The Oracle Rebounds starts off with Jared breaking up with Kayla and her having her heart broken to the point she isn’t sure what she is suppose to do. Lucky for her, she turns to herself from the past by getting her own advice through her own website.

I gave The Oracle Rebounds by Allison Van Diepen 5 smirks because it is such a touching story about how to pick yourself up when you hit a wall. Allison Van Diepen is a fantastic writer who knows how to bring real emotion to readers and get them invested in the story’s outcome. I highly recommend reading The Oracle Of Dating and of course, The Oracle Rebounds because each book can make you feel better about life in general (even if you don’t have an problems, these books can give you positive aspects to look at if you ever find yourself in an impossible situation).
