REVIEW for Will Work for Prom Dress


















A huge thank you goes out to Goodman Media for sending me a copy of this book - which has been on my "must have" list!

TITLE:                   Will Work for Prom Dress

AUTHOR:              Aimee Ferris

GENRE:                 YA

RATING:                4 Stars


I love, love, YA that features social angst and this book is full of both social angst AND humor - a wonderful mixture that makes reading Will Work for Prom Dress one of the funniest (and best) reads I have had in a long time.

Our main characters are working towards saving enough money for their "betterment plan" actually, for their dream prom event - which leads to some funny episodes and some great dialogue. It also leads to Quigley and Ann meeting some hot guys - namely David and Zander

The opening chapter is hilarious with Ann and Quigley trying to have some fun as they are "stuck" making frozen pizza (how much fun can that be?).

The plotline moves along quickly and for the most part, the writing is great, although if I have one negative it is to say that, for some reason, I did not bond with the main characters all that much as I found them to be a tad immature at times.  Yet, this "immaturity" also promoted some great moments that were honestly quite funny - a bit of a catch 22 for me.

Nonetheless, this book was hoot to read.
