I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies. 

A Tale of Two Proms (Bard Academy)

A Tale of Two Proms - Cara Lockwood I really liked this book. I thought it was a great way to the end the series. All my questions were answered and there was a definite ending. As usual, Cara Lockwood pulled me into the story pretty effortlessly. Be that as it may, there were a few things that bothered me about the book. Nothing really major. I just thought a couple of the plot lines were just wrapped up a little too conveniently. Since I'm a sucker for perfect endings though, this didn't affect my enjoyment of the book. The one thing that is probably my biggest issue with the series is the personalities of the authors/teachers at the school. Their personalities seemed a bit diluted in comparison to their real life counterparts. For instance, I think Headmaster B and Ms. A would not get along, due to Headmaster B's harsh words about Ms. A's work. I honestly kind of wanted that to be alluded to more. But then again, I am a lit geek. To see full review click here: http://yalbookbriefs.blogspot.com/2012/02/tale-of-two-proms-cara-lockwood.html
