    DescriptionPhiladelphia high school who doesn't care about the prom. It's pretty much the only good thing that happens there, and everyone plans to make the most of it--especially Ash's best friend, Natalia, who's the head of the committee and has prom stars in her eyes. Then the faculty advisor is busted for taking the prom money and Ash finds herself roped into putting together a gala dance. But she has plenty of help--from her large and loving (if exasperating!) family, from Nat's eccentric grandmother, from the principal, from her fellow classmates. And in making the prom happen, Ash learns some surprising things about making her life happen, too.

    Review quote
    "Modern teen life just outside Philadelphia is vividly drawn in Ashley's first person tale, and it's both screamingly funny and surprisingly tender. Expect teen readers to be quoting aloud to each other, and giggling." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
