In the final book of bestselling author Melody Carlson's Carter House Girls series, the Carter House girls are making prom plans and competing for boyfriends, as well as fighting for the limelight in a Mother's Day fashion show. With graduation and last good-byes around the corner, will they resolve old differences or part ways as enemies?
Melody Carlson is a wonderful writer and she weaves Christianity throughout the books seamlessly. You don't feel overpowered by her message, but are still able to learn and it makes a positive impact on you. Melody Carlson knows how teens operate and what they want to read. This is probably why she has written over 200 books.

Now onto the book review.

This is the 8th book and final book in the series. The whole book revolves around college, prom, and becoming prom queen. It was a little slow at the beginning, but after a few chapters I remembered why I enjoy this series. There are a myriad of problems with all of the characters and it keeps you involved in the story.

The characters in this book seem to be more "mild" than the other books and not as interesting. With that said, Melody is able to give the characters many conflicts and it makes up for the lack of character interest. I do wish that Taylor had been more involved in the story though.

This book was a bit slower than the others, but was still interesting. I do think it could have been a bit better though. There's not much else to say about this particular book, but I would recommend the entire series.

Overall the book was a good, easy read and ended the series wonderfully. I hope she does a spin-off of the characters in college, especially DJ and Casey.

Rating: 4 stars / 5 stars
