Quigley Johnson has, reluctantly, given up the rest of her last year of high school to take part in her best friend Ann’s Betterment Plan, which will turn them into the best-dressed, most sought-after, most admired girls at their senior formal. Because – hey – who doesn’t want the perfect prom, complete with a dream dress and a devastatingly handsome date?
But the prom costs money – lots of money – and even though the girls could easily have Ann’s mom design their dresses (she’s only Victoria Parisi, one of the most famous designers in the world), Ann insists that they pay their own way. And that’s how Quigley gets stuck making artistic topping masterpieces on frozen pizzas canvases, before becoming a live model for Ms. Parisi’s fashion design class, where she meets Zander.
He’s cute, and cool, and funny, with a killer design sensibility (even if he can’t sketch). But is he too good to be true? And what about David, the hot, talented artist at school, who’s also kind of a jerk, but won’t leave Quigley alone? And Ann – she started the Betterment Plan to improve Quigley and herself, but it seems like it’s ripping their friendship to shreds.
This road to the prom dream may just end in disaster. – Goodreads
My Opinion: I really enjoyed this book. There were so many moments where I laughed and though “Oh my gosh, that so true.” Quigley is just like your average student. I know because I still don’t know to which college I want to go to and just choosing is super hard because of all the pressure. I loved that she changes in little steps because of how she learns little things and I love the loyalty she feels towards Anne. Quigley is a great character. However, my favorite had to be The Spikester (Lance) because of all the things that he had to go through to be the type of person he is today especially with all the obstacles.
I also really enjoyed how the novel progressed and the growing up that the characters went through. It was a great book that made me read it in in less than 24 hours. Loved it!!!
Haha my favorite part had to be the Elvis pizza!!!
Overall: 5 out of 5
