Cover Reveal: Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein

5 Mar 2012

Pretty Amy 
by Lisa Burstein
Released May 15th 2012, 
by Entangled Publishing 

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.

Lisa Burstein is a tea seller by day and a writer by night. She wrote her first story when she was in second grade. It was a Thanksgiving tale from the point of view of the turkey from freezer to oven to plate. It was scandalous.
She was a lot like Amy when she was in high school.
She is still a lot like Amy.
Check out Lisa's junior prom photo! <3
Also, in addition to the PRETTY AMY cover reveal, there will be a Worst Prom Photo contest in the weeks leading up to AMY's release on May 15. So make sure to dust off your old prom photos—the more tulle, bows, and big hair the better!—and watch Lisa's site, for details on how to submit/enter to win a beauty package. it just me, or does the cover look a bit like Serena Van der Woodson (Blake Lively) from afar? :P

What do you think of the cover? :D


  1. I do like this cover which is odd for me because I usually dislike covers with girls in big dresses!


    Looks so unique and different! Also love the summary, sounds really interesting!

    And awww, Lisa looks so PRETTY in her prom photo! And yeah, from far, the girl in the cover does look similar to Blake Lively!

    Anyway, I can't wait to read this! Thank you for sharing this with us, Shirley! <3

  3. Oooh I added this to my wishlist the other day because I thought it sounded awesome and now we has a prettyful cover! Haha actually she kinda sorta does look a little like Blake Lively at a really quick glance! I can't wait to read this one!

  4. This one sounds cute, and aww Lisa's prom pic. :) I'm adding this to my TBR pile. Thanks for putting this on my radar.
