Synopsis (as seen on back of book)

Three friends, one prom, and just twenty-one days to get ready.
Chloe Thomas is going to the prom. Of course, she doesn't have a date, she needs a dress, and she's the last person anyone expects to see there. But her two oldest friends asked her to go, and she said yes. Right away things start to fall apart. Laura and Jace are too busy with their own preparations to help Chloe, her "real" friends think she's insane, and her parents are so excited that she can't even be in the same room with them. Why on earth did she agree to do this? With drama, humor, and a touch of prom magic, Blake Nelson delivers a story as memorable as prom itself.

My Synopsis

This book is about three girls, Chloe, Laura and Jace. The girls used to be best friends but have grown apart. Chloe has become a sort of outcast geek, Laura the popular one and Jace is the athlete. Chloe really does not want to go to their prom but Laura and Jace insist. They try to help Chloe as much as they can, trying to help her find a date, a perfect dress and everything else involved with going to prom. Finally the girls find Chloe a date.. but will he be a handsome stud or a geeky loser? Will Chloe be a social outcast at the prom? Will she look beautiful or horrible? Will she embarrass herself in front of everybody? This is what Chloe fears about during the entire book and the answers to those questions will be answered when prom rolls around.

Meanwhile Laura and Jace have their own problems. Laura has a boyfriend but something seems off about them these days and at work she meets a cute boy that she feels a connection with. Laura is the one who wants everything to be perfect. Perfect date, perfect dress, perfect friends and most importantly perfect night! But will she figure out everything with her boyfriend before prom? And what about that hottie at her work? Will Laura be able to pull everything off? Will trying to unite the three girls be a disaster?

Jace needs a date and has a crush on this cute tennis player named Paul. She doesn't know if she should ask him to the prom or not. He's good looking and nice but there's something weird about him, something different that Jace intends to figure out. Will Jace be able to figure everything out with Paul or will she be at the prom dateless?

I read this book awhile ago and I actually enjoyed it a lot. It was very cute and funny. Obviously about girls and their cute boy drama... and prom! Which is always fun. But it's also about friends and trusting them. It definitely kept me interested and I was excited to see how the book would end.



  1. Hmmm Not really my kind of book, but I like the cover...

    Following! ^^

  2. With the synopsis it seems like Chloe is medically unwell when in reality she is just an outcast, I don't like the synopsis or cover but the review makes me want to read it.



Don't be shy! We love to hear from you!
