Book Review – Ask Again Later

 Synopsis: Despite what her name might suggest, Heart has zero interest in complicated romance. So when her brilliant plan to go to prom with a group of friends is disrupted by two surprise invites, Heart knows there’s only one drama-free solution: flip a coin.

Heads: The jock. He might spend all night staring at his ex or throw up in the limo, but how bad can her brother’s best friend really be?

Tails: The theater geek…with a secret. What could be better than a guy who shares all Heart’s interests–even if he wants to share all his feelings?

Heart’s simple coin flip has somehow given her the chance to live out both dates. But where her prom night ends up might be the most surprising thing of all…

 

This book was extremely cute and hilarious. It was so funny and I’m glad I decided to read it. Heart is so dead set to avoid making the mistakes of her mother (teenage pregnancy and abandoning her kids) that she decides to swear off dating. Completely.

Prom approaches and her plans to go with a group are shattered when Troy (her brother’s recently dumped friend) and Ryan (who revealed to Heart he’s gay) both ask her to go to prom. (I’ll just insert here that whilst I liked her brother at first, he can be such a douche) Heart is torn can’t say no to either which leads to the interesting concept of this book being told from alternating timelines (which took a while to get use to) that were dependent on who she chose (Troy/Ryan).

The other interesting thing is that both choices lead up to her being confronted by another close friend who happened to like her all along resulting in her reevaluating her previous no dating rule (almost a bit like fate). Heart’s narration is so funny and I laughed out loud several times.
