Standard

The Anti-Prom by Abby McDonald

Hardcover, 288 pages
Expected publication: April 12th 2011 by Candlewick Press
Three unlikely allies team up for a night of rebellion, romance, and revenge in a high-stakes dramedy from acclaimed young author Abby McDonald.

They’ve spent years at the same high school without speaking a word to one another, but that’s all about to change. Popular Bliss was having the perfect prom until she found her BFF and boyfriend making out in the back of a limo. Bad girl Jolene wouldn’t be caught dead at the prom, yet here she is, trussed up in pink ruffles, risking her reputation for some guy – some guy who is forty minutes late. And shy, studious, über-planner Meg never counted on her date’s standing her up and leaving her idling in the parking lot outside the prom. Get ready for The Anti-Prom, Abby McDonald’s hilarious, heart-tugging tale about three girls and one unforgettable prom night. – Goodreads

My Opinion: This is a very fun book. It was a quick read and its basically about learning about friendship and how it can grow form nothing. At first when I read the summary of this book I thought that it would be similar to the movie John Tucker Must Die but in the end it was different all thought the ending itself was similar because all three of the girls, Meg, Jolene, and Bliss turned out to become very good friends.
I really enjoyed the aspect of getting revenge. I thought that it added such a huge spike it in being appealing because usually when girls are targeted by boyfriends and abandonment from parents that they sort of play the victim and I thought that the whole running around made this so much fun and adventurous.  I almost sort of wish my prom to be like that although I plan on being there for it.
This was a fun and amazing read about a new and real friendship.
Overall: 5 out of 5
