Review: Prom Dates from Hell by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Bookish Details:

Release Date: April 22nd 2008

Goodreads Summary:
Maggie Quinn, Girl reporter. Honors student, newspaper staffer, yearbook photographer. Six weeks from graduation and all she wants to do is get out of Avalon High in one piece. Fate seems to have different plans for her.

High school may be a natural breeding ground for evil, but the scent of fire and brimstone is still a little out of the ordinary. It's the distinct smell of sulfur that makes Maggie suspect that something's a bit off. And when realTwilight Zone stuff starts happening to the school's ruling clique—the athletic elite and the head cheerleader and her minions, all of whom happen to be named Jessica—Maggie realizes it's up to her to get in touch with her inner Nancy Drew and ferret out who unleashed the ancient evil before all hell breaks loose.

Maggie has always suspected that prom is the work of the devil, but it looks like her attendance will be mandatory. Sometimes a girl's got to do some pretty undesirable things if she wants to save her town from soul-crushing demons from hell and the cheerleading squad.

My Review:
I can’t even begin to express my love for Prom Dates from Hell. This book is brilliant. That’s all there is to it. I love a book that manages to have the perfect mixture of action, humour and a bit of romance and this one defiantly ticks all those boxes.

Prom Dates from Hell follows senior, Maggie Quinn, as she battles a Demon that begins taking down the popular crowd at her school.

I love Maggie Quinn. She is amazingly hilarious with her sarcastic humour. She very much reminded me of Suze Simon from my The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot (which, if you don’t know, happens to be my most treasured book series of all time).

There are some seriously funny moments in this book. There were many times I laughed out loud whilst reading this one. I also adored Maggie’s dad, he’s such a sweetheart!

This is a really funny and enjoyable read. I’d recommend this to anyone who loves a good mystery YA novel.
