Review by Suze
 
Daisy's parents are each other's soul mates and Daisy knows what true love is because she witnesses it every day. She thought she found something just like it, but then her boyfriend Matt moved to Spain and left her behind. She's heartbroken and because she can't face the reactions of all of her college friends she decides to transfer to another school. Daisy's parents have a wedding agency and she's constantly surrounded by love. She wants to have that in her life again. Matt has moved on and it's time for her to do the same. At her new school she meets someone who seems to be ideal. His name is Toby and he's handsome, he's smart and he's generous. Only is Toby really as perfect as Daisy thinks he is?
 
The #1 Rule for Girls is a book about friendship, relationships, love and making the right decisions. Daisy is confident at first, but she can't seem to find back her happiness and that means she's starting to lose some of her self-esteem. I hoped with all my heart that she would find it back again. She's such a fantastic main character. I loved the way she dresses and enjoyed reading Rachel McIntyre's descriptions of her outfits. Daisy's mother makes most of her clothes and she always has something unique to wear. She likes bold colors and isn't afraid to wear them. Her favorite shoes are pink Dr. Martens, a detail I liked a lot. Another fabulous thing about her is the way she talks. Daisy knows who she is and she has a great personality. 
 
Rachel McIntyre has a wonderful sense of humor. Daisy is funny and she's bold. I like how her mind works and she isn't afraid to tell people the truth which is refreshing. The main topic of this story is a very good one. Not every guy is nice and there are early signs that tell you a lot about a person. Only sometimes it isn't easy to see them, especially when you really want things to be different. Rachel McIntyre uses these signs for her story in a clever way. Fortunately Daisy has a close friend who always has her back. Friendship is important and Daisy is lucky in that area. She struggles because her friends are in a different school though and it's easy to feel left out in a situation like that. She's going through something realistic and real that could happen to any girl who's unhappy, which is an interesting idea for a story. Because Daisy is so accessible it was easy to sympathize with her. The #1 Rule for Girls is a fantastic book and I highly recommend it.
