Publisher's Description

Megan Bernard would sell her soul to be prom queen. Okay, maybe not her soul. But her popular older sister Bethany was prom queen three years ago, and Megan is certain that the only thing that would make her truly happy would be to attain the same honor. Her mom thinks it would be pretty cool too. 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 after all.

Teen favorite Melody Carlson is back for one more Kingston High saga, tackling what happens when we become obsessed with position, popularity, and the lure of celebrity.

Author Bio

Melody Carlson is the award-winning author of more than 200 books, including The Jerk Magnet, Never Been Kissed, and Double Take. She recently received a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award in the inspirational market for her many books, including the DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL series and Finding Alice. Melody and her husband live in Oregon.

Booklist

Hard work by your friends and fairy-tale good luck can get you elected prom queen--if you want it badly enough. After catching a televangelist's message to "believe it and receive it," Megan decides that the prom crown will be hers. As part of her campaign during the months running up to prom, she tries to get involved in a range of extracurricular activities at her Christian high school, do good works, show leadership, lose weight, and get a date for the big night. While the teen guy characters don't feel fully developed, here, Megan and her girlfriends are presented as credibly flawed and sympathetic, and readers will enjoy all of Megan's projects to boost her electability, even if they occasionally stretch probability. There is no need for readers to refer to earlier episodes in the Life at Kingston High series for this entry to make sense to fans of very gentle Christian romances.

    This review was written for #3: The Prom Queen.
    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!
