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…

myreview First sentence:

Before she left, my mom gave me three things: (1) her wedding ring, (2) a closet full of kick-as vintage clothing, and (3) the worst name in the world.

I enjoyed Ask Again Later more than I expected, but the ridiculous drama that happened to Heart made me irritated. How many bad things will happen to Heart throughout prom? A LOT. I found myself shaking my head. The book is formatted like Pivot Point and Just Like Fate, where it presents two different alternate realities based on Heart’s choices — the first is going to prom with her brother’s best friend, Troy, where Heart is plagued with disasters and the second is going to prom with Ryan, the Theater techie, who has a secret that he confides to Heart.
