"This is one book you don't want to miss!"--Crossings Book Club "Blackston's light and breezy style makes Flabbergasted an ideal reading choice for a lazy summer night."--Bookpage "Blackston's first novel is refreshingly honest ...Good writing and an ample dose of humor make this as charming as Bridget Jones' Diary from the male point of view. Highly recommended."--Library Journal "A fun, lighthearted and thoroughly enjoyable 'relational gumbo' of a novel ...quirky and very satisfying, this novel is an excellent debut."--CCM Magazine "[A] superb first novel."--Christian Retailing "Blackston takes an amusing look at the Christian singles scene, The story proceeds at a leisurely, episodic pace, focusing on dialogue and characterization to provide the plot."--Romantic Times "This book made me laugh out loud."--Liz Curtis Higgs
