The Anti-Prom (Hardcover)
Special Order - Subject to availability
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.
About the Author
Abby McDonald is the author of two other novels for young adults—Sophomore Switch and Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots—as well as two adult novels. She divides her time between Montreal and her hometown in Sussex, England.
As in the excellent Sophomore Switch (2009), McDonald instills more intelligence than you'd expect from such a plot while not skimping on the simple pleasures, either
Plenty of snarky language and good one-liners will grab readers…Will certainly attract readers looking for light chick lit.
Woven into the revenge antics is a sensitive and compelling exploration of the vicissitudes of high-school relationships.
