Jennie has been a widow for two years. Her twelve-year-old son thinks it's about time she started dating, and so does her best friend, Angela. So with Angela's help, Jennie signs up to an online dating site. Within hours, she has several dates lined up for the week. Surely there will be one Prince Charming in the bunch. And if not, it's only one date, right? How bad could it be?
"This is great for adult newcomers to reading or the English language as well as anyone who enjoys zipping through a lighthearted read in a single, short sitting."

"Melodie Campbell is the Queen of the Rapid Read…Worst Date Ever is one the best of this genre. Like all her novels the dialogue is the driving force. This tale is funny, but Campbell finds the sad notes, the desperate moves and the gentle poignancy when two people realize that what they wanted was right in front of them. Finding a complete story like this in a novella form is rare…This rapid read is more than a good read."

"Campbell's work will appeal to adults as well as to teens who enjoy romantic comedies."
