Review: Tessa Masterson Will Go to Prom
Tessa Masterson Will Go to Prom by Brendan Halpin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A really high-quality read. Lucas is crushing hardcore on Tessa, and devises a really dramatic, romantic way to ask her to prom. It falls flat, however, because Tessa likes girls and not boys. Lucas feels betrayed, and Tessa and him fall out a bit, and the story follows Tessa's attempts to go to the prom (facing significant scorn from the local community) and Lucas dealing with being the other guy/jerk.
There's not a lot to say about it except that it's a great story that isn't bogged down by its fairly clear message - a rarity. Definitely a good read overall.
