's review

it was amazing

While most teenagers go to prom their senior year, Amy Fleishman goes to... jail?

In this witty story about a teenage girl trying to fit in and find her place in life, Amy's easy life is about to turn upside down. Her mother goes ballistic and her lawyer wants her to testify against her best friends, the only two girls that ever accepted her as she was. Hard headed Amy vows her loyalty to her friends and refuses, conscious that she may be spending the next year in jail. What's a girl to do when she's forced to find a job and forbidden to have any contact with her only friends? Become more rebellious, of course.

Lisa Burstein renders a humorous tale filled with a lot of parent nagging and teenage tantrums. And though the story is comical, it ends with a great moral. Burstein's writing style is easy to absorb and keeps true to the age of the main character's narration. After the giggles and the moral has been learned, you'll find that there's a "Pretty Amy" in you, too.
