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.

    " What I liked best... it was short. It was bearable enough to get through, but if you've ever read a book where an author is trying too hard, you'll understand why I wouldn't recommend. I think the inner-city stereotyping was just unbearable at times. The book had moments of humor and Ashley's family was quite entertaing... just enough to give 2.5 stars. "

    " I bought this at the Rochester Teen Book fest a few years ago, and had it signed by the author. It was the first of her books that I read, but she's become a favorite of mine subsequently. I think this may be her best work, though--it creates a realistic, but still entertaining portrait of multiracial urban teens preparing for that classic teen milestone in new and interesting ways. Her style is breezy, but captures the voices of her characters extremely well, and I found the story both compelling and highly enjoyable. "

    " No one does attitude like Laurie Halse Anderson. I read this in one sitting, it was gripping, and well-written and fun. And I love, love, love how she describes things. There's this scene where the main character is kicking the washing machine again and again. It totally made the book worth it. "

    " Good book, but I wasn't thrilled with the ending...I don't like when books end unrealistically with all conflicts being perfectly resolved. "
