Revell #3: The Prom Queen

All Megan Bernard wants is to be prom queen, just like her older sister Bethany. But when Megan decides she'll do whatever it takes to take home the crown, life gets decidedly complicated. Maybe "celebrity" isn't all it's cracked up to be.

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 research in the novel concerning how to run a prom campaign as well as the energy that goes into hosting it on top of having a fundraiser. I really never thought about how much work might go into running for prom queen because many of the candidates make it look easy. On the outside they made it look easy, but as in this story it was easy to see that any high school girl can become easily trapped into the idea of living up to others expectations. However, I love how the author describes Megan's God moment of realizing that in the end the only thing that matters is giving God to glory! The surrender that Megan experiences is amazing and makes the ending that more beautiful!
I would give this novel a 4 out of 5 stars only because there were a few parts that didn't hold my attention very well! Despite that though, I would still recommend this YA novel for any high school girl! Relatable characters with a great message!

this book is so good, i just could not put it down!! I love kingston high books so much, i wish there was another one. But this book i feel talks a lot about what girls think they have to do to impress and the thoughts people through in your face and its just a really good book that i recommend.
