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, she must piece together stain-by-stain on her thrift store dress—exactly how she ended up dateless…with only the help of some opinionated ladies at the 7-Eleven. But to get to the whole story, Justina will have to face the boy who ditched her. Can losing out at her prom ultimately lead to finding true love?

What People Are Saying
Zany comedy dominates this romp through the prom night from Hell… The author displays a well-developed touch for the absurd… For readers with a funny bone that needs a tingle, this should hit the spot. ~Kirkus
Mellom’s debut is a laugh-out-loud tale of a prom nightmare. She understands what makes teens giggle and what makes them cringe…Give this one to those non-Cinderella types who have a knack for getting into trouble. ~Booklist
It’s like The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and Sixteen Candles all rolled into one…four outrageous friends bond in an unlikely way…and an ending that will blow you away. This book is brilliant. ~myguiltyobsession.blogspot
