I liked Tessa Masterson Will Go To Prom. I thought it was a good story filled with drama, but I also felt that the authors did not fully develop Tessa as a character. Readers really only know that she is a lesbian who has a best friend until she comes out of the closet once he asks her to prom and she has to say no. Otherwise, in my opinion, the writers of the book did not develop her as a character. We do not know her feelings, other than upset that she cannot go to prom. Also, it is not clear why she likes Josie (her girlfriend). Their relationship is not shown in the book very much. It seems like Tessa only wants to be with her because she is a lesbian. Regardless of the book's flaws, I thought it sent a great message. I recommend this book to girls ages 13 and up.
