A nice, quick read. Anderson's writing flows as effortlessly as always. The main character is a bit different than her previous ones, I found her very enjoyable. The characters were rich and I felt everything was well presented and well represented.

Good realistic view of modern teen life, with entertaining character development and novel plot.

I like Anderson's books but I also dislike them. They have a great influence on people but that's also why I dislike them. I read books to escape from the world's problems so reading her defeats the purpose. PROM was masterfully written but depressing. Anderson has wrote the book in a very negative yet great way.

A very entertaining story with lots of eccentric characters and very short chapters.
