Book Review - "Prom"


Again by Laurie Halse Anderson. Frankly, "Prom" disappointed me. She was nominated for the National Book Award with "Speak" but I can't help wondering whether she only had one good book in her? Maybe she'll write another good one someday, but "Prom" just didn't grab me. There was no trouble in the first few chapters for me to get concerned about. Then, she describes how the main character (girl) was hot for some loser. I suppose if I'd read on, I would have gotten concerned for the MC's judgement, but I got tired of wading through the first few chapters and gave up.

Maybe someone else will have a different opinion.
