Review: Anti-Prom

While Prom is the dream of many high school students, for three girls it becomes the worst night of their lives.

Bliss finds her boyfriend and her best friend making out in the limo. She can’t bear to go back into the prom and pretend that everything’s fine. She wants revenge.

Jolene isn’t the type of girl who goes to prom, but she’s here against her will. She’s wearing a pink dress with ruffles and she’s hating every minute of it. When Bliss breaks down and asks for her help, she thinks there might be a way to save the night after all. Plus she might find a way to get back at her father.

As the two girl stumble into the night, they come across Meg driving away from the prom. Meg doesn’t have a date or any friends waiting for her. Her Mom would have wanted her to have this experience, so she came. She can’t bring herself to go into the dance.

When their paths cross, Meg reluctantly helps the two girls. Although the three of them would never have been caught dead hanging out, for one night, they might break the social cliques of high school and become friends.

One thing is for certain, it will be a prom night to remember.

My Thoughts: Abby McDonald has a knack for taking ordinary life and creating engrossing reads full of drama, friendships, and a little romance. The Anti-Prom takes a hard look at high school cliques, questioning their significance and their worth.
