PRETTY AMY & Worst Prom Photo Contest

Today's a personal blogging milestone: my first cover reveal! Across the blog-o-sphere, readers are now viewing the cover of debut author Lisa Burstein's PRETTY AMY for the first time. Ta da!  

Entangled Publishing says, "We will be hosting a Worst Prom Photo contest in the weeks leading up to AMY's release on May 15. So make sure to dust off your old prom photos—the more tulle, bows, and big hair the better!—and watch Lisa's site,, for details on how to submit/enter to win a beauty package."

Here's the book blurb: "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 nothing. . .Bringing readers along on an often hilarious journey, Amy finds that maybe getting a life only happens when you think your life is over."

Looking at the cover, I'm mesmerized by the poofy layers and the girl's shoes.  I think maybe there are two types of high school girls in the world--those who wear heels to the prom, and those who don't.  You can see in the photo below which camp I fell into.

Actually, the grass is pretty high, so maybe you can't see that I was wearing flats, third from the left. Why my dress wasn't five inches longer, I will never know. 


  1. :D
    Pretty cover and I love your prom picture!

    We don´t have that type of tradition in High School in France...

    1. Aw, thanks. It's the kind of tradition that I don't think I would have minded missing, if we didn't have it. So much drama and teen angst!

  2. I love the pretty light blue dress! It's an elegant cover
