It's prom season once again, which translates to expensive dresses, finding the perfect date, and having the best time of your life. The prom is the perfect excuse for anyone to look their best, even though it may result in a little overspending. For Lisa Marie, Heather, and Marianna, it is all they can think about. It's the event of the school year and they want to make the best of it.

Marianna, the cross-country star, just received the best present ever when her crush, Luke, asked her out. Unfortunately, the only thing standing in their way is Marianna's controlling father, who watches her every move. But finally going out with the one person she really likes could lead to the perfect prom night...and maybe even a long-lasting relationship.

Lisa Marie has everything she's ever wanted; well, not exactly. Her longtime boyfriend dumped her two months before the prom. Which wasn't fair at all, since it--the breakup--was so close to prom and, well, she was going to dump him first. She has found the perfect prom dress, but she just doesn't have the cash to back it up. So now Lisa Marie gets a job at a Starbucks, since she is the "coffee queen," to pay for the dress. But with a new job comes a whole new batch of guys flirting with her. No sooner does Lisa Marie go from dateless to having multiple dates available to take her to the prom.

Heather isn't really feeling the whole prom thing and tries to avoid it but can't, since her two best friends keep on trying to find her a date. But the problem is her friends, and even Heather herself, do not know exactly what kind of date she wants. Turns out the only thing Heather can think about is her sexuality, which is completely confusing.

Will prom night, the event that they all have been waiting for, turn out to be too much to handle?

At first glance, MAKING OUT seems like any other novel about a high school prom. But it is far from regular. The first in the PROM NIGHT series, Megan Stine takes the prom and gives it a reality check. Every chapter is a different girls' perspective, letting readers truly see how each girl feels. This is a fast-paced read full of twists and turns until the very last page. Megan Stine takes some of the realistic situations of prom and turns them around to let readers discover some of the things that some teens do not seem to know about.
