Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Expected Publication: May 15, 2012
Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she’s somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association. But when their dates stand them up for prom, and the girls take matters into their own hands—earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spanx—Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating “rehabilitation techniques” now filling up her summer. Worse, with Lila and Cassie parentally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing—like she is nothing.
Navigating unlikely alliances with her new coworker, two very different boys, and possibly even her parents, Amy struggles to decide if it’s worth being a best friend when it makes you a public enemy. Bringing readers along on an often hilarious and heartwarming journey, Amy finds that maybe getting a life only happens once you think your life is over.
Thoughts: This cover is exactly what the title says, pretty! I absolutely cannot get enough of the cover! I LOVE the prom dress and how it is exactly what you would imagine a prom dress to look like, big, poofy and princess looking! lol Every girl wanted that stunning unique dress at prom so sometimes you took unique over simple, and elegant! Also, I love the background of the cover, it gives the illusion of an old fashioned jail house, and seeing as the three girls end up in jail for one night it suits the book perfectly! I dont think I have ever seen a cover that fits the titles and synopsis so exquisitely as Pretty Amy's does! I also adore how the cover and authors name isn't taking away from the cover, it isn't overbearing but still noticeable, almost like graffiti on the wall - makes the books cover very unique and different from most covers out there. What do you all think?
