You'd think life couldn't get much worse than being arrested on prom night. But you'd be wrong.
No friends . My two besties, Cassie and Lila, are now officially parentally banned.
No summer of freedom . Instead, I'll be working at a convenience store, earning money just so I can cover bail.
No future . Just a series of humiliating "rehabilitation techniques" designed to teach me a lesson.
The only silver lining is Aaron--a mystery wrapped in a leather jacket and wielding car keys--who just happens to show up right when I need him. Now I only feel alive when we're driving together, the wind in my hair.
Maybe finally getting a life only happens once you think your life is over.

|display_description||Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she's somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association. But when their dates stand them up for prom, and the girls take matters into their own hands--earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spanx--Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating "rehabilitation techniques" now filling up her summer. Worse, with Lila and Cassie parentally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing--like she is nothing. Navigating unlikely alliances with her new coworker, two very different boys, and possibly even her parents, Amy struggles to decide if it's worth being a best friend when it makes you a public enemy. Bringing readers along on an often hilarious and heartwarming journey, Amy finds that maybe getting a life only happens once you think your life is over.|
