Prom Dresses, Take Two!

Last week I posted seven hot new prom dress styles, and asked readers to vote.

It turns out we had a tie for favorite prom dress, numbers two and three:

I agree--both great choices!

I picked one commenter to win a signed copy of Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress and that is...

Mrs. V!

(Yay!) Mrs. V., please contact me at with contact information so I can get that book in the mail to you!

Thanks to all who voted and entered the contest!

Now, staying with the prom theme, I was thrilled to learn last week to learn that School Library Journal announced a 2009 Prom Fiction List, and guess what book got included?

See for yourself:

Anderson, Laurie Halse. Prom.
Bradley, Alex. 24 Girls in 7 Days.

Happy Birthday Stephanie!

The only book I've read on that list is yours. I think it may have spoiled me for the rest of them.

I won't mention how many of those I have (not) read because it's embarrassing, but mega congrats Tina!!! The book that inspired my all-time favorite teen movie is on the list. How I Created My Perfect Prom Date by Todd Strasser got turned into Drive Me Crazy, starring Melissa Joan Hart and Adrian Grenier. Yum.

TLC, I didn't realize that Todd Strasser's book inspired that movie. Thanks to your recommendation, I watched it and loved it, too!

I heard from Mrs. V., and am dropping her book in the mail today!
