On My (Library) WishList #2




Title: The Anti-Prom
Author: Abby McDonald
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Publication Date: 8 Mar 2011

Synopsis: From Amazon
Three unlikely allies team up for a night of rebellion, romance, and revenge in a high-stakes dramedy from acclaimed young author Abby McDonald.

They’ve spent years at the same high school without speaking a word to one another, but that’s all about to change. Popular Bliss was having the perfect prom until she found her BFF and boyfriend making out in the back of a limo.
Bad girl Jolene wouldn’t be caught dead at the prom, yet here she is, trussed up in pink ruffles, risking her reputation for some guy - some guy who is forty minutes late. And shy, studious, ├╝ber-planner Meg never counted on her date’s standing her up and leaving her idling in the parking lot outside the prom. Get ready for The Anti-Prom, Abby McDonald’s hilarious, heart-tugging tale about three girls and one unforgettable prom night.

I saw a great review of this one on YA Book Nerd this week and thought it would be a terrific addition to the school library.

Title: The Demons Lexicon
Series: Demons
Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Children’s Books
Publication Date: 1 Jun 2009
Synopsis: From Amazon
Nick and his brother Alan are on the run with their mother, who was once the lover of a powerful magician. When she left him, she stole an important charm - and he will stop at nothing to reclaim it. Now Alan has been marked with the sign of death by the magician's demon, and only Nick can save him. But to do so he must face those he has fled from all his life - the magicians - and kill them. So the hunted becomes the hunter...but in saving his brother, Nick discovers something that will unravel his whole past...

I actually borrowed this one from the county library but would really love to have the series in the school library. Review here.

  7. The Anti-Prom reminds me of Ugly Betty. I just finished The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan so now I'm wishing for The Son of Neptune. I'm also making good progress on crossing books off my wishlist. Come see!
