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…

About the Author:
Liz Czukas is a freelance writer (on sometimes sad or boring topics), and also writes books for young adults (which are rarely sad and full of kissing). Before that, she was a nurse and she still kind of misses starting IVs.
She lives outside Milwaukee, WI with her husband, son and the world’s loudest cat. She types too loud (according to her husband), spends too much time on the Internet, and can’t get enough of disaster movies. There is *always* a song stuck in her head, and she once won a hula-hoop contest.
What a cute contemporary read! Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas is filled of nonstop high school drama, twists and turns, and adorable friendships and romances. It is the PERFECT read for contemporary lovers.
I was a really big fan of the main character, Heart. She made me laugh out loud several times and just gave the book a laid back, snarky feel. It was definitely a relaxing and entertaining read! The supporting characters were equally as entertaining. I really felt like I was at a high school prom watching all of these unique personalities play out in front of my.
Ask Again Later has a sort of Pivot Point by Kasie West feel in the sense that it goes back and forth between two different paths that Heart can take. For the most part I really enjoyed that, but there were times that I was like UGH…just stick to one path! It got kind of confusing at times, but it was fun to go back and forth of what could be.
The relationship between Heart and Schroeder ( I think that’s how you spell his name) was absolutely stinkin adorable. I was a BIG FAN of that relationship. They were just so flipping cute! I can definitely see him making it on to top boyfriends lists at the end of the year.
For me, personally, Ask Again Later was maybe a bit too young for my taste. The characters seemed a little younger than they were actually portrayed, and I often thought that this was more of an MG title than a YA title. I think it’s actually kind of a mixture of both. If I compare it to contemporary YA books as a whole, then I have to admit that Ask Again Later is definitely on the younger side of YA. It’s something that I could see younger kids and huge fans of contemporary YA reading.
Ask Again Later is a book that could be read in an entire setting. It’s addicting and a feel good type of read. Definitely a book that sparked my interested and is making me say hmmm….maybe I’ll just pick up more of Liz Czukas’ books in the future!
