High school senior Justina Griffith was never the girl who dreamed of going to prom. Designer dresses and strappy heels? Not her thing. So she never expected her best friend, Ian Clark, to ask her.
Ian, who always passed her the baseball bat handle first.
Ian, who knew exactly when she needed red licorice.
Ian, who promised her the most amazing night at prom.
And then ditched her.
Now, as the sun rises over her small town, and with only the help of some opinionated ladies at the 7-Eleven, Justina must piece together — stain by stain on her thrift-store dress — exactly how she ended up dateless. A three-legged Chihuahua was involved. Along with a demolition derby-ready Cadillac. And there was that incident at the tattoo parlor. Plus the flying leap from Brian Sontag's moving car...
But to get the whole story, Justina will have to face the boy who ditched her. And discover if losing out at prom can ultimately lead to true love.My Review:
This was an utterly hilarious book! I loved how close that they could get to each other, but just miss each other, that back and forth, that almost meeting, almost getting together, but not quite making it, it was really quite hilarious, how close that they got, and yeah, it was just great when they actually met up!
I loved how the story was told in flashbacks, in order of the various stains on her dress, and how so many things went wrong, and how she was telling this to the attendant of the 7-Eleven, yeah, just hilarious, and there were some pretty creative stains in her dress!
Yeah, I loved how basically, Justina and Ian ran around like chickens with their heads chopped off, and they did have legitimate reason for keep missing each other, so yeah, their reunion, that was just epic, and really sweet, and really enjoyable!
This was a really great book, really entertaining, and I really loved it!
