Reading ‘Ditched’ by Robin Mellom makes me feel like a teenage girl once again. It is not only refreshing, but it’s also highly entertaining. It’s definitely an easy read and it’s that sort of book that you’d like to pick up whenever you had a bad day in school or thinks that you had just screwed up your math test.
This story was told in a very playful manner and I couldn’t help but giggle every now and then while reading this book. Kudos to the author and I hope to read more from the author in the near future.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book from Disney-Hyperion via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book.
High school senior Justina Griffith was never the girl who dreamed of going to prom. Designer dresses and strappy heels? Not her thing. So she never expected her best friend, Ian Clark, to ask her.
Ian, who always passed her the baseball bat handle first.
Ian, who knew exactly when she needed red licorice.
Ian, who promised her the most amazing night at prom.
And then ditched her.
Now, as the sun rises over her small town, and with only the help of some opinionated ladies at the 7-Eleven, Justina must piece together — stain by stain on her thrift-store dress — exactly how she ended up dateless. A three-legged Chihuahua was involved. Along with a demolition derby-ready Cadillac. And there was that incident at the tattoo parlor. Plus the flying leap from Brian Sontag’s moving car…
But to get the whole story, Justina will have to face the boy who ditched her. And discover if losing out at prom can ultimately lead to true love.
Filled with humor, charm, and romance, Ditched: A Love Story by debut novelist Robin Mellom will have readers dreaming of love on their own prom nights.
