When a jealous conflict turns deadly, it threatens to destroy the prom on which Jessica and Elizabeth have worked so hard.
I couldn't believe how shallow and vapid my two favorite twins seemed. Jessica is really the most nauseatingly ego-tistical little idiot who floats through life forgetting about everything and expecting everything to come her way. Her entire attitude throughout the book is "OH, I can't wait to be prom queen!"
Unfortunately, Elizabeth wasn't much better. She tilted off keel on the other extreme from freaking out about small things. (Her sister was dared to swim out to the buoy at a beach party and Elizabeth ran up and down the beach trying to figure out how to save her poor little sister swimming in the dark ocean. She even decided to go borrow this guy's surf board and paddle out and get her.) I read that and thought, oh come on...
Then we come to the finale. Everything happens like it was stacked like a triple helping of fate served up in the stars. Jessica spikes Elizabeth's drink, with what? Rubbing alcohol? I can't think of half a glass of anything, even hard liquor that would mess someone up so severely that they couldn't walk and were slurring their words in such a drunken way. So how big was that punch cup?? Because from what I remember, most punch glasses aren't very big.
And the ending..what are the chances of that really happening? Oh well, this is a young adult novel.
As a sidenote, I was pleasantly surprised by some of the secondary characters. Lila actually made pretty good sense most of the time. I almost applauded her when she was sunbathing in Jessica's backyard, and she mentally commented on how "immature and nauseating" Jessica's behavior actually was. Bruce wasn't so bad either.
