About the Book:

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.

Filled with humor, charm, and romance, Ditched: A Love Story by debut novelist Robin Mellom will have readers dreaming of love on their own prom nights.

Justina is not like most girls, but when she agreed to attend prom with none other than her best friend Ian is promises to be a night she will remember. Anticipating the best night of her life, she never anticipated what the night would actually hold. When the night goes terribly a rye, and she finds herself in a ditch the following morning she left to decipher how she ended up here. After months of secretly admiring Ian she had a plan, but nothing turns out the way she thought it would. Ditched is told as Justina delivers her story to the gas station attendant; where she finds herself after waking in the ditch. At first she is unable to remember much of what happened the night before, but as time passes the memories resurface. Only not every question can be answered from her memories. Like where did Ian take off to, and why did her ditch her at their own prom, and how did she end up muddy in a ditch with stains covering her dress. This is a story of humor, embarrassment, and love that will carry readers through the story's end. The pace is slower requiring readers to press through, but still remains entertaining and funny.
