Convince us to read the book: HA HA HA!!! This book was the funniest thing I have read in a long, long while. SO, These three girls, the ultimate outcasts (the overweight one, the goth one, and the awkward one) get chosen to go on a "reality TV show" ( you know the ones, where they say it's "reality," but when you say something they don't like, they yell "CUT" and make you redo it) about becoming Prom queens. As a little curve ball, they throw in the girl's nemesis's to fight for the crown (and of course, the ultimate date and dress). The book ends in an all-out hair-pulling, nail-chipping (oh, the horror) brawl. IT IS SO FUNNY!!!
Memorable or Forgettable: The way this book was written makes it hilarious.
Cover: The cover did a great job of describing the book. I mean, when you look at it, you can tell right of the bat that it is about (the real prom queens), where it mainly takes place (Westfield High), and who win's the crown (the main character).
Age Range: under 12 through 18 and up
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Additional Comments: HA HA HA!!!
Annotation: This book is the ultimate outcasts-turned-popular. It was hilarious reading about the bad decisions the girls made when they were popular.
