About 15th of the way into this book I realized that this book was what an upper middle class suburban girl would write if she was writing about normal lower middle class kidsAnderson starts referring to the number of kids that are crack whores in jail etc but none of the characters in the book get into any kind of serious trouble This is simply not the truth for large groups of lower middle class kids Many lower middle class kids have friends who get into serious trouble Ashley hangs out with hard partying kids but none of them have conseuences That s an upper middle class reality not the reality for families that are too cash strapped to get their kids a good lawyerThe narrator Ashley lacks authenticity She just doesn t feel real She has a bazillion detentions but doesn t ever earn them during the book She seems to ditch class regularly but the conseuences aren t real ie tickets contracts court dates etc The book on the whole is sweet but it lacks truth Skip Prom and go read My Most Excellent Year a story about truly normal kids
