    One thought on “The Beetle and Me: A Love Story”

    1. I loved this story the first time I read it and I loved it just as much the second time! I love the way Daisy is, as a strong female character and I adore the double romance, between Daisy and Billy and between Daisy and her car.

    2. My sister gave me this book a couple of years ago because it had a bug on it. I read it today and it made me feel nostalgic. I was/am Daisy the main character in the book. Like Daisy, I have cried over my Volkswagen bug because something went wrong, kissed a boy in it, and have loved my car more than anyone should ever love their car. The only difference between Daisy and I is that she can fix her car. This story was amazingly adorable, and one I will probably read again!

    3. Rereading this book has made me remember how much i love it. Daisy is an underage female car mechanic determined to rebuild the engine of the VW beetle that has been slowly moldering away in her parents' icehouse. how can you not want to read it after that? i mean, come on, her aunt is a professional mechanic, her uncle races cars for a living, her sister dances ballet, her mom works in a hospital and everyone in her family gets grubby underneath cars. what a great family dynamic to build a book [...]

    4. Daisy has a dream of restoring her father's old Beetle all by herself. She would rather deal with machinery than people (most of the time.) Older sister Helen is preoccupied with Tom Bixby, older cousin Imogene has Ben and even when Daisy meets Daniel, he soon gets tired of talking cars with her. Soon he is off with Imogene, leaving Daisy even more confused. When she starts school in the fall, she meets Billy in her Auto Mechanics class, and soon discovers her relationship may go beyond talking [...]

    5. Audiobook narrated by Julie Dretzin. 15-year-old Daisy Pandolfini and her family are into cars. She knows how to repair them and can talk shop. She takes on the project of repairing her father's old 1957 VW Beetle. Meanwhile, she also crushes on Daniel, sorts through her ambivalent feelings toward Billy and her own teenage angst. Nice portrayal of a close-knit family , lots of car talk, but at times Daisy's introspectiveness is so much navel-gazing.

    6. This was one of several stories read about girls who are into something besides the boyfriend. In this case the protagonist is into restoring an old Volkswagen Beetle. Some of us felt that there was just too much about the car, but others of us liked that the girl was interested in something nontraditional for a girl.

    7. I found this book buried in a cabinet dusty and neglected. So I took it home and added it to my pile of to-reads. After putting it off until the bottom of the pile, I finally gave it a look. The plotline is outdated and flawed, but something about the Beetle and Me is just plain appealing. I felt a bond Daisy. As she fixed up her old sweet car, I enjoyed this old sweet book.

    8. Daisy can't drive yet, but she is determined to rebuild her father's 57 beetle by herself. Cars run in her family, and she doesn't need any help. It is her refuge away from her confusing life. Her family is always butting in, and even Daisy doesn't always know what she is feeling. But she might just need some help after all, maybe from Billy, who she isn't sure if she loves or not.

    9. I too picked this book up at a used book store because the title had a Beetle Bug in it. It is definitely a teen read! The story is simple but satisfying and inspiring. It showed a different side of a teen girl who was grounded and not afraid to be who she was - auto shop and all!
