Feb 13, Jodi Papazian rated it it was ok Shelves: Instead the motivating factor of the plot was the execution of the story. Like I said, focused more on Justina’s crazy adventures than the romance. Nothing strikes me as possible from the very improbable events described and I couldn’t connect to any character or sympathise with Justina.
Designer dresses and strappy heels? Ian was the only character I might have liked in this book. Any guy who calls a girl by her essence, is a guy I wouldn’t mind hanging around with. Justina’s story begins on the morning after Prom.
It is all about timing–and one day when I’m not planning it, and organizing it and strangling it, love will become possible. Have a crazy dress you mom made you wear to prom?

Robin Mellom’s writing is fairly good. This book was wonderful from start to finish. It’s chaotic, full of misunderstandings and a romance that will make your heart beat faster.
I finally finished it took some time because of stuff getting in the way but I found some time and read!! All of the ditdhed character we meet in Ditched, A Love Story are just as amazing. It all starts with a yellow stain on the hem of her dress. There were some aspects I really enjoyed, but most of it just left me feeling underwhelmed.
