Ahley, a teen living on the other side of the tracks, attends a highschool where the prom's money gets stolen. Of course, Ashley has no interest in going, but seeing all the other girls distraught over no prom, signs up for a committee that will gather more money and supplies for the prom. Meanwhile, Ahsley deals with her boyfriend, her family, her grades which are slowly dropping, and the fact that she might not be able to attend the only thing she has worked so hard for.
Prom, such a wide subject. Prom, as I consider it, is an event when lots of girls spend money on meaningless items such as dresses and shoes and have their hair done really nice, just for something as materialistic as one night of fun. That's what I used to think prom was. After reading this book, I come to find it is so much more. It's one night of letting go, becoming someone you never were, becoming someone pretty, noticed, and so much more. It's different for alot of teen but one hope we all share is to have one night of blissful memories, one night of fun that we can always treasure. In this book, it's one community that doesn't have everything they can, no endless supply of money, worries that never come to an end. It's one community coming together after a day's hard work. It's inspiring to see all these characters that face immense hardships, family problems, lack of money, and alot more come together to let go of all life's worries and just enjoy life.
