High school senior Ashley Hannigan doesn't care about prom, but she's the exception. It's pretty much the only good thing at her urban Philadelphia high school, and everyone plans to make the most of it-especially Ash's best friend, Natalia, who's the head of the committee. Then the faculty advisor is busted for taking the prom money, and Ash suddenly finds herself roped into putting together a gala dance out of absolutely nada. But she has help-from her large and loving (if exasperating!) family, from Nat's eccentric grandmother, from her fellow classmates. And in putting the prom together, Ash learns that she has choices about her life after high school. Prom has everything that award-winning author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for-humor, poignancy, teen readers' tough issues dealt with head-on, and a voice teen readers will recognize as their own.

Quick Thoughts/ Mini Review: I really liked this book- it was a quick read and it had a lot going on but in a good way. There are a few characters and side stories but they keep the story moving. I loved ash's family- I thought that they were described very well and that they were "crazy" (doesn't everyone think their family is crazy?) but loving and supportive. I enjoyed the characters and the story- I and I really loved the end (shhhh no spoilers- although there isn't much to spoil). Favorite Line? from page 40 (Ashley's dad) - "I sort of dropped that old punch bowl that we never use anymore. But don't tell your mother. You know how she gets."
