Another fun read by Melody Carlson! Her books may not be for everyone, but I love them for some reason.

I like the fact that Megan getting in over her head actually seemed realistic, and that her problems didn't just magically go away when she prayed, which is what sometimes happens in Melody's books.

I wish there were more books in this series - I would have loved a book about Zoe! Or even Janelle, since she seems to be the snarky one in the group.

So far, Megan Bernard’s senior year at Kingston High been boring; no extracurricular activities, no clubs, and no chance of running for prom queen (even though she secretly wants to be crowned). Everything changes though when one Sunday morning, too ill to go to church, she is forced to watch “Shower of Power”, a televised church service.

Megan soon finds herself believing that she can not only run for p
Overall I really enjoyed "The Prom Queen" and thought it was very realistic! It was an ordinary, everyday high school senior who took on what could be the potential deceiving words of a televangelist and applied them to her own life (at least in the context that Megan did). However in the process she took God out of the center and instead filled it with pride and selfishness. This resulted in a slow, chaotic down spiral of over-committing and exhaustion.

I felt Carlson had put quite a bit of rese
A teen novel, Megan decides she needs to be more positive and have dreams. She decides to strive towards being prom queen.
Not only was this a great read, but it contained a message that I need to hear right about now.

This book was okay. It was kinda slow at first and had a beautiful ending, what with Bethany Bridgewater and everything. But the characters were so. . . annoying. Lishia was having mood swings, Megan was so self-absorbed and Janelle was your basic brat. Chelsea was the only one I could stand. I wish I were more like her, to be honest.

Jack and Dayton were annoying. Jack was like PMSing or something. And Chelsea encouraged Megan to go to prom with Dayton. Um, Chelsea, what happened to wh
