Ask Again Later
By Liz Czukas
Publication date: March 11, 2014
Harper Teen, 336 pages
Despite what her name might suggest, Heart has zero interest in complicated romance. So when her brilliant plan to go to prom with a group of friends is disrupted by two surprise invites, Heart knows there’s only one drama-free solution: flip a coin.
Heads: The jock. He might spend all night staring at his ex or throw up in the limo, but how bad can her brother’s best friend really be?
Tails: The theater geek…with a secret. What could be better than a guy who shares all Heart’s interests–even if he wants to share all his feelings?
Heart’s simple coin flip has somehow given her the chance to live out both dates. But where her prom night ends up might be the most surprising thing of all…

Cute cute cute!
I read Ask Again Later on an airplane for a work trip and it was the perfect distraction and de-stressor.
Heart’s story (yes, that’s her real name) flips between two alternate realities, depending on who she chose to go to prom with. Usually I think setups like this are confusing, but it wasn’t at all.
It was fun, funny, easy, romantic, light-hearted and wrapped up just perfectly. JUST what I needed. If you want to sink into a book and just escape and relax, I’d absolutely tell you to give this one a try.
PS: This is the first I’ve heard of Liz Czukas, but I just saw she has another book coming out this year, Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless. Check it out too! Sounds cute as well, right?
