Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"Ashley tells her story in an authentic, sympathetic voice that combines gum-snapping, tell-it-like-it-is humor with honest questions about her future." (Booklist)

Horrible Narration

SO MUCH MOUTH NOISE. You can't concentrate on the story because you hear this person's spit swilling around in your ear.
Narrator is way too old to be reading the part of an 18 year old girl. It sounds like the character's late middle aged mom or a teacher is reading the story. The language of this teenager sounds absolutely ridiculous.

Bad production choices.
