It’s time to prepare for the big dance — by reading The Anti-Prom!

The Anti-Prom by Abby McDonald is a hilarious adventure caper that takes place on that night of all memorable high school nights — prom night.

The beautiful Bliss had the perfect prom planned, right up until the minute she spots her boyfriend making out with her best friend in their limo.

Bad girl Jolene has cultivated her tough image for years, only to show up to prom wearing pink ruffles. When Bliss asks for her help, Jolene can’t say no (even though she tries).

Meg, the shy geek-girl, got stood up by her pre-arranged date and is sitting in her car, idling in the parking lot, when Bliss and Jolene run from the building.

Three girls leave the prom for very different reasons and begin an exciting evening’s journey of revenge, sabotage and vandalism that leads to self-discovery and friendship.

The Anti-Prom is better than a traditional perfect prom story– because really, even if the perfect prom night could happen, it’s certainly not as memorable as a prom story like this one!

The Anti-Prom is available as a printed book in the YA Fiction section of the library and it’s also available as an ebook for checkout and download from
