Sixteen Candles meets Sliding Doors in this hilariously charming and irreverent YA debut. Fans of realistic teen fiction like Lauren Barnholdt's Two-Way Street and Sarah Mlynowski's Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have) will love Ask Again Later's pitch-perfect tale of prom night drama—with a twist.
Heart LaCoeur has zero interest in a messy high-school romance, no matter what her name suggests. That's why she's decided to avoid prom angst by going with a group of single friends. And that's why, when two surprise prom invites derail her brilliant plan, Heart takes the only foolproof, drama-free solution: a coin flip—that somehow gives her the chance to live out both prom nights. Heads or tails, where they both end up might be the most surprising thing of all. . . .

Praise For Ask Again Later…
— Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door
“A hilarious romp. Heart is the kind of narrator you’ll love rooting for: self-deprecating, brutally honest, and charmingly quirky. A Molly Ringwald for the next generation. The only question you won’t need to ask again later is whether or not to read this book. The answer is yes.”
— Shaun Hutchinson, author of The Deathday Letter and FML
“Czukas’ debut is pure fun; at times, readers will feel as if in a John Hughes movie—and that’s a good thing.”
— ALA Booklist
“A genuine comedic voice and well-developed characters.”
— Kirkus Reviews
“Fans of Stephanie Perkins and Jane Austen will swoon.”
