Book Review : Chasing Daisy by Paige Toon
Read: May 6-7 Verdict: 5 stars
Daisy is part of the team that looks after a famous Formula 1 racing team, and she has developed a bit of a crush on one of the drivers, Will. The only problem is Will has had a girlfriend, since well forever! And how can a girl compete against that? Luckily, Daisy has some friends to help her out, and the annoying advice of Luiz, the other driver on the team.
If you've read Johnny Be Good and Baby Be Mine, also by Paige Toon, you may recognise Daisy and may even know the ending of the book. But that doesn't mean it's not a hell of a ride.
Both Will and Luis in this book are both really nice guys, with really different personalities. Luis definitely has that South American spice and feistiness to him, which definitely played off well with the Italian passion and temper that Daisy inherited from her grandparents but then Will was much more soft-spoken, kind and decent. It was so hard to know who to root for. Being honest, I was totally expecting Will to end up being the biggest ass, cause obviously he had the girlfriend and he was so torn between Daisy and Laura. I really did not expect what happened!
The reader goes through a whole load of emotions with Daisy, from confusion, love, grief, the magic of new beginnings and finally acceptance and happiness. This book will make you laugh and cry, sometimes all at the same time!
