Prom Dates from Hell (Maggie Quinn: Girl vs Evil)

Prom Dates from Hell - Rosemary Clement-Moore Overall I enjoy Rosemary Clement-Moore's writing largely because she writes very snarky, entertaining main characters. Although Maggie Quinn fails to compare to the Goodnight girls, I found the book entertaining nonetheless. Maggie reminded me of Kami from [b:Unspoken|10866624|Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)|Sarah Rees Brennan|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1333397426s/10866624.jpg|15781826], both are reporters for their schools, intelligent and snarky. But again, Kami beats out Maggie in terms of entertainment value and humor as I never found anything terribly laugh-out-loud level amusing in this one. But the mystery was pretty good and overall the story is engaging, albeit nothing to write home about.

I did, however, find it annoying that yet again the jocks and cheerleaders were used as the evil parties in the book. This cliche is tiresome. The only saving grace was that one of the jocks showed himself to be more than just a part of the flock of "evil".

Minor gripes: the title is misleading, this deals with a prom very little (I'm not complaining as I did not want more prom, I just like accuracy) and the covers of the books are dreadful.
