Will Work for Prom Dress

Will Work for Prom Dress
Author: Aimee Ferris
pages: 265
publication date: February 8 2011

Quigley Johnson has, reluctantly, given up the rest of her last year of high school to take part in her best friend Ann's Betterment Plan, which will turn them into the best-dressed, most sought-after, most admired girls at their senior formal. Because - hey - who doesn't want the perfect prom, complete with a dream dress and a devastatingly handsome date?

But the prom costs money - lots of money - and even though the girls could easily have Ann's mom design their dresses (she's only Victoria Parisi, one of the most famous designers in the world), Ann insists that they pay their own way. And that's how Quigley gets stuck making artistic topping masterpieces on frozen pizzas canvases, before becoming a live model for Ms. Parisi's fashion design class, where she meets Zander.

He's cute, and cool, and funny, with a killer design sensibility (even if he can't sketch). But is he too good to be true? And what about David, the hot, talented artist at school, who's also kind of a jerk, but won't leave Quigley alone? And Ann - she started the Betterment Plan to improve Quigley and herself, but it seems like it's ripping their friendship to shreds.

This road to the prom dream may just end in disaster

To say I liked this book was an understatement. I honestly could not stop reading it till I was finished. It was a break from all the paranormal/dystopian novels I have been reading recently and I couldn’t get enough of it.
Quigley and Ann are best friends, Ann’s mom is a famous fashion designer and she told both the girls that she would make them prom dresses for free. But Ann doesn’t want that. So Quigley and Ann both get jobs to pay for them as a frozen pizza topper, unfortunately an incident happens and they are both fired.
Quigley is upset she just wants to have the perfect prom dress, Ann has an idea, she sets them up as models for a college fashion design course and things start looking up. Especially when she gets paired up with Zander, the nice, cute Zander, I absolutely adored him, for some reason I didn’t see him as 19 years old. He seemed much younger than that. He was such a mysterious character, wouldn’t talk much about his past but he just made the whole story complete.
When Quigley was kind of going out with David and Zander at the same time I was furious at her, she acted like a fool, why can’t she see that Zander is the one for her.   I sometimes question the stupidity of characters in books. I do realize that there all fictional but I feel like when I read any book there real characters and that’s when I think that the characters seriously need to lose the stupidity.
Anyways my point of this whole review is that everyone should go out and read this amazing book. It was a refreshing read and it’s very fast paced. I look forward to reading more of Aimee’s books!
5/5 stars

Oh I almost forgot about this book! It sounds like such a fun cute read. It's definitely a good break from all the heavy dystopian out on the market right now.
