Synopsis

The Anti-prom by 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 has the perfect boyfriend, the perfect prom dress - and now the perfect case for revenge after finding her best friend and boyfriend making out in the back of a limo. Bad girl Jolene wouldn't be caught dead at the prom, yet (due to her mother's ultimatum) here she is, trussed up in pink ruffles, wondering whether boot camp might have been the better choice. And shy, studious, uber-planner Meg, ready to stop being a wallflower and start experiencing life firsthand, never counted on her date's standing her up and leaving her idling in the car park outside the prom. Get ready for The Anti-Prom, Abby McDonald's hilarous, heart-tugging tale about three girls on one crazy night.

Reviews

it's all about the intersecting cliques of high school and doesn't shy away from tough topics Kiss

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

The best new books on the market, reviewed honestly, to give your readers the best choices.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
