Goodreads:  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.

Ope’s Opinion:  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.

Rating:  Two Chairs – I may have one friend who might like this book.
