Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Philadelphia high school who doesn’t care about the prom. It’s pretty much the only good thing that happens there, and everyone plans to make the most of it—especially Ash’s best friend, Natalia, who’s the head of the committee and has prom stars in her eyes. Then the faculty advisor is busted for taking the prom money and Ash finds herself roped into putting together a gala dance. But she has plenty of help—from her large and loving (if exasperating!) family, from Nat’s eccentric grandmother, from the principal, from her fellow classmates. And in making the prom happen, Ash learns some surprising things about making her life happen, too.

Review:

"'This energetic novel, narrated by Ashley, offers snappy commentary about high-school life, and some priceless scenes,' wrote PW. Ages 14-up. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Containing everything she's known for, this latest novel by the award-winning author of "Speak" and "Catalyst" describes the angst surrounding an American teenage rite of passage: the senior prom.
