I want to read that...

Ditched: A Love Story by Robin Mellom

From Goodreads: High school senior Justina Griffith was never the girl who dreamed of going to prom. Designer dresses and strappy heels? Not her thing. So she never expected her best friend, Ian Clark, to ask her.


Ian, who always passed her the baseball bat handle first.
Ian, who knew exactly when she needed red licorice.
Ian, who promised her the most amazing night at prom.
And then ditched her.


Now, as the sun rises over her small town, and with only the help of some opinionated ladies at the 7-Eleven, Justina must piece together – stain by stain on her thrift-store dress – exactly how she ended up dateless. A three-legged Chihuahua was involved. Along with a demolition derby-ready Cadillac. And there was that incident at the tattoo parlor. Plus the flying leap from Brian Sontag’s moving car…


But to get the whole story, Justina will have to face the boy who ditched her. And discover if losing out at prom can ultimately lead to true love.

How much do I love the sound of this one?  There is something very John Hughes about it! And I am a major John Hughes fan - you don't want to know how many times I've watched The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful.  Oh and Ferris Bueller's Day Off!  I think Pretty in Pink is my favourite though - because of Duckie.  Blane was gorgeous but Duckie won my heart:)

However, I digress.  Ditched published January 10th 2012 by Disney-Hyperion.  So excited!
