Girl Gives Birth to Own Prom Date is a lighthearted and breezy novel in which the daily troubles of growing up and socializing are presented humorously. Even the dark details of school life only briefly intrude on the happy, often goofy tone of the narrative. The story is told in alternating short chapters by Nicole and Chase, neighbors who at first do not have much to do with each other. Nicole is a social climber whose life is devoted to looking good and finding a great date for the prom, and Chase is a somewhat childish rebel who is devoted to looking bad and avoiding taking anything, especially proms, seriously. Could anything be more likely than these two falling in love?
