Three unlikely allies team up for a night of rebellion, romance and revenge in a high-stakes drama from acclaimed young author Abby McDonald. Hilarious and heart-tugging by turns it's not to be missed.

Please note that this book contains sexually explicit content.


The Anti-prom by 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 has the perfect boyfriend, the perfect prom dress - and now the perfect case for revenge after finding her best friend and boyfriend making out in the back of a limo.

Bad girl Jolene wouldn't be caught dead at the prom, yet (due to her mother's ultimatum) here she is, trussed up in pink ruffles, wondering whether boot camp might have been the better choice.

And shy, studious, uber-planner Meg, ready to stop being a wallflower and start experiencing life firsthand, never counted on her date's standing her up and leaving her idling in the car park outside the prom.


it's all about the intersecting cliques of high school and doesn't shy away from tough topics Kiss

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
