Overview

The Anti-Prom by Abby McDonald

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.

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 dance and pretend that everything's fine. She wants revenge. Jolene isn't the type of girl who goes to Prom, but she's there 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 girls 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. But she can't bring herself to go inside. When their paths cross, Meg reluctantly helps the two girls. Although the three of them would never have been caught dead hanging out together, 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. Abby McDonald has a knack for taking ordinary life situations and creating engrossing reads full of drama, friendship, and a little romance. THE ANTI-PROM takes a hard look at high school cliques, questioning their significance and their worth, and provides an entertaining read in the bargain.

A good adventures prom story. I would recommend The Anti-Prom to a person who is looking to read a fluff and adventurous read. My favorite character was Meg. She was always nervous and worried. Jolene was the rebel girl. Bliss was miss popular.I was surprised that Meg did not stay with Tristan, since she had a crush on him. In the end Scott was a great match for Meg. During, prom Bliss uncovers her boyfriend, Cameron cheating on her with one of her friends named, Katiyln. She immediately wants to seek revenge and asks Jolene to help her.They seek out to destroy Katiyln in any possible way. Meg provides Bliss and Jolene with a ride to their destinations.Along the way they use Katiyln's diary to damage her reputation, but what they don't realize is that the diary will destroy many students' lifes. The diary contains material on students deepest secrets.My final thoughts were that Bliss never blamed Cameron, instead she took out her anger all on Katiyln. In my opinion Cameron deserved a good slap on the face.

The Anti-Prom was everything I wish my own prom had been: wildly adventurous, dangerous, and romantic. But Abby McDonald gives us all that one night in this book and its so much fun to tag along. Three very different girls, popular Bliss, rebel Jolene, and geeky Meg are thrown together in an unlikely threesome determined to make prom night what each one wants. Bliss is driven by revenge on her boyfriend Cameron who she sees fooling around with Kristen in the back of their limo. Jolene has years of built up hatred for her father, who she sees as turning his back on her and ruining her college fund. And Meg, who I identified so much with, is just always in the shadows. No one could believe she went to prom, or how she looks after her transformation by the other two. But I get ahead of myself here. The story is told from each girls perspective and it really flows nicely. There are a lot of wild scenes and by the end, each girl's story ends with things all right. Perfect for a beginning of summer read where you can laugh and sigh, and remember your prom, and just how different one night can be for a girl.
