The Anti-Prom is the most fun I've had in YA for quite some time. It's a night-in-the-life romp of three unlikely friends - popular Bliss, bad girl Jolene, and shy Meg - who team up to get sweet revenge on the people who've wronged them. Like McDonald's other books, particularly Sophomore Switch, it manages to upend its YA formula for a really sweet and touching story of friendship. Jolene is my favorite character, a total badass who's secretly a marshmallow with daddy issues. There's something to relate to for all readers. It's really refreshing to read a solid realistic YA that's not about creatures that go bump in the night.

I had been waiting forever to read this book as it was on my "list" for months and months. I simply love reading any YA book that centers, at least in part, on the prom - I guess it makes me relive my own prom experiences which were, UGH! quite a few years ago.

Anyway, this book actually has a very interesting "twist" quite early on in the storyline (and I feel as though I can share it without spoiling it for anyone as it is indicated right on the back cover). Yes, our main character discovers, while at her prom that her "perfect" boyfriend is actually "doing it" with another girl.

Bliss freaks out, however, decides to get even. Coincidentally, she comes across Jolene who has issues of her own - starting with her father and ending with her reputation as a rebel at school. Together, they start to plot revenge against Bliss' so called boyfriend. Then Meg enters the triangle, bringing along her own set of issues. Together this little trio will end up finding more than just revenge.

I loved the writing style. Breezy and down to earth, the author tells her story by inviting us to connect with the characters (the good and the bad). I immediately connected with Bliss - I know how hurtful it can be to discover that the guy who are with can cheat on you so easily! I also believe in karma!!!! which is a huge reason I enjoyed this book so much.

Additionally, I am always entranced by stories about people finding each other and while the anti-prom is meant to be cute and funny, it also sends another message - one of friendship and hope. People in need automatically find each other.

I loved this one.

It's prom night for Bliss, the popular girl, Jolene the bad girl, and Meg the wallflower. All three of them have prom nights that take a turn for the worse and thrust them together in quite the adventure. There is rebellion, romance, and some growing up that takes place for all of them.
There is nothing life-shattering or dramatic that will make the reader be forced to stay up for hours on end reading what will happen next. With the three characters being so different, it makes it easy for a teen girl to relate to at least one of them. It has a bit of a Breakfast Club feel to it, which isn't always a bad thing. This is a good teen read for anyone looking for the happy ending.

This book was not at all what I thought it would be. I thought it was going to be a cute read about three girls going to their prom. There was very little time spent at the prom at the beginning of the book. The rest of the book was an adventure the three girls went on.

Since all three girls are very different, you could probably find one to relate to. On the other hand, I would not recommend young adult girls to read this book. I felt like the revenge the girls were putting into place was inappropriate.

I kept reading this book hoping that it would take a turn for the better. I was disappointed it never did. Getting revenge for a whole book, just isn't my choice of a good book.

Under usual circumstances this is a book I would have put down after reading the first couple of chapters, but circumstances were not normal. This was the only audio book I had with me at work and I had a mundane task to complete so I just kept listening. By the time work was done I was nearly half way through the book and then kept listening because I wanted to know how everything turned out.

The first half of the book was just ok, it was entertaining but I really didn’t care about the characters and found it to be a little far-fetched and cheesy. However it held my interest enough to continue to the end and I did like the ending. So its rating went from a “not my kind of book” or “wouldn’t recommend” to a “take it or leave it” kind of read by the end. There really isn’t much more I have to say other than if it looks like something you might enjoy perhaps you should check out a few other reviews to see what others thought about it since it really wasn’t my cup of tea.

Rating: 2.5 Stars – Take it or Leave it

Content: Too much for my liking. Lots of language including a couple uses of the F word, talk and descriptions of everything that goes with a stereotypical prom, after parties & frat parties.

It's prom night, but the perfect night of dances, dresses and lipglosses is going anything but perfect for three very different girls. Popular girl Bliss just saw her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend, Bad girl outcast Jolene is completely out of her element, and in pink, wondering why she thought he would show up. Shy, invisible Megan is ready to take control of her life and stand out, until her date cancels on her at the last minute. When the three girls come together for a little revenge and rebellion, then end up with a night that none of them could've imagined.

This book was cute. It wasn't special, it wasn't unique, it wasn't fabulous, it was cute. This is one of those cute coming of age stories where the characters look at their lives, hate what they see, and change it in ways they didn't think would happen. It's light, it's fluffy, it puts a smile on your face and then you move on. It isn't the type to endear itself to you and leave you thinking about it for hours afterwards. It entertains you until the last page, and then you move on.

The characters are cute. I liked the three main girls. Their stories make sense, they fit the roles that were created for them. They have a lot of fun, they fight, they yell, they laugh, they have a great time with each other. The other characters in the story were perfect as well. There was nothing wrong with any of them. None of them really stand out and make you think about them, but they all played their roles really well.

The plot was simple and it was written smoothly. The story keeps you glued and you want to know what happens.
