Waiting on Wednesday: The Anti-Prom

Breaking the Spine hosts this meme that allows us to put books on each other's radars because obviously all bookworms need more books ;D

The Anti-Prom by Abby McDonald

Release Date: April 12, 2011

Three unlikely allies team up for a night of rebellion, romance, and revenge in a high-stakes dramedy from acclaimed young author Abby McDonald.

They’ve spent years at the same high school without speaking a word to one another, but that’s all about to change. Popular Bliss was having the perfect prom until she found her BFF and boyfriend making out in the back of a limo. Bad girl Jolene wouldn’t be caught dead at the prom, yet here she is, trussed up in pink ruffles, risking her reputation for some guy - some guy who is forty minutes late. And shy, studious, über-planner Meg never counted on her date’s standing her up and leaving her idling in the parking lot outside the prom. Get ready for The Anti-Prom, Abby McDonald’s hilarious, heart-tugging tale about three girls and one unforgettable prom night.

-I believe Bliss is Mexican-American and most people know by now that I'm always looking for fun stories about teenagers of color. We need more of them! Revenge, prom, three points of view, three girls thrown together who barely know each other. I'm curious to see how they all meet and get started on their quest for revenge/a good time :)

What are you waiting on this week? I finally got my Goodreads TBR to 500 and it will stay there. So if you leave a recommendation and I don't add it right away, don't feel bad, that's why (I'm not so sure I can read more than 500 books in my lifetime)!
