What a hoot! You've got that teen voice DOWN PAT. Fun from start to finish.

I'm howling! Superb, authentic tone, perky pace, adorable story-line, plot twist at the end...This is beyond entertaining! I feel as though I know this kid. (Hmmm, yup. She's my little sister!) Fabulous read.

So funny! That teen girl thing is down pat in this story. (Makes me kinda glad I have a boy.) Great writing gives this story the flavor it needs-high school angst and everything that goes with it.

If only I had been so bold!!!

Sadly, I will have to hang my head in shame when my kids ask if I went to prom...

LOVED THIS! Thanks for making me laugh.

This is such fun. Your voice is perfect for a teen. Great job. I really enjoyed it. I loved how it ended...like mother, like daughter...in a neck brace. Bravo.

“How big is your God?” I could just hear the mother's voice. My goodness, but this piece was hilarious. The whole thing was a happily-ended exercise in pain!

What fun! I love the sarcastic teen routine and the slightly twisted, but totally believable family dynamics. The last paragraph, and particularly the last line were brilliant!

Congratulations on your win. Your story was hilarious. Reminded me of ancient times when I was so desperate to get a date for the prom that I asked a boy myself. He turned me down very sweetly, saying he'd like to go but it was expensive and he just didn't have the money. At the time I was devastated but later married a man who danced divinely--he could cook too, lol. Getting back to the present, I LOVED your story!
