Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she's somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association. But when their dates stand them up for prom, and the girls take matters into their own hands--earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spanx--Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating"rehabilitation techniques" now filling up her summer. Worse, with Lila and Cassie parentally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing--like she is nothing. Navigating unlikely alliances with her new coworker, two very different boys, and possibly even her parents, Amy struggles to decide if it's worth being a best friend when it makes you a public enemy. Bringing readers along on an often hilarious and heartwarming journey, Amy finds that maybe getting a life only happens once you think your life is over.

I honestly loved this story. I was able to immediately forge a emotional connection with the characters. Yes, Amy is a very grumpy and difficult person. I know some people have complained that they couldn't connect with her, but I did. She was complex and real and she grew throughout the story.I cam...
Ever had one of these moments when you finish a book and think “That was definitely NOT what I expected?” Like, you saw a cover and read the description and it never prepared you for what might be inside?
