today I'm participating on the cover reveal of Pretty Amy, a debut contemporary novel by Lisa Burstein. You know how much I love contemps, aaaaaand, I just adore the sound of this book so I had to join the excitement!
So without further ado, I present you the fabulous cover and synopsis:
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.
People, people, people. DON'T YOU LOVE THIS COVER?!
I do! I think it's so cool how she's in full prom attire while in jail! looks awesome, and blue is my favorite color, I would have loved to wear blue for prom :/...
Speaking of prom, Lisa (who is so cool and funny) will be hosting a Worst Prom Photo contest in the weeks leading up to AMY's release on May 15. And what better way to get people to join that sharing her own Prom Pic:
