my name is Amanda. I would like to have a second of your time to tell you
about "Prom Dress." I enjoyed this book because it is excitting and will
keep you guessing what will happen until the very end. This book is about
a girl in her teens who is dating the most popular guy at school and he
wants to take her to prom but her family is poor.
Her dad died and her mom is working a job that doesn't pay enough for the
kind of dress it would take to impress her guy. She works as a housekeeper
for her next door neighbor. She is a little old and odd but asks her to
borrow a beautiful dress she caught a glimps of in the attic, but the lady
refuses. It took part in a horrible tragedy at her prom in which a monsterous
scar was produced on her face. To find out the rest, you'll have to read
"Prom Dress." (Amanda, student, Musselman Middle School. Bunker Hill,
