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.
Three unlikely allies team up for a night of rebellion, romance, and revenge in a high-stakes dramedy from acclaimed young author Abby McDonald. ---Candlewick
I loved the triple first person points of view in this story. It's really difficult to do more than one first person narrators, but Ms. McDonald has nailed it. She gave each one a very distinct voice and personality, which made me close to each girl in this story.
The beginning just broke my heart. Let me just say Bliss's boyfriend is a total jerk and I was rooting for the girls to serve up revenge on his ass.
Loved this one!
