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.

Praise For The Anti-Prom

As in the excellent Sophomore Switch (2009), McDonald instills more intelligence than you'd expect from such a plot while not skimping on the simple pleasures, either

Plenty of snarky language and good one-liners will grab readers…Will certainly attract readers looking for light chick lit.

Woven into the revenge antics is a sensitive and compelling exploration of the vicissitudes of high-school relationships.
