Title: Ask Again Later
This was one very long prom night. The story was mostly told with two storylines – what would happen if the coin toss favored heads or if it ends up tails. Despite showing different prom nights for Heart, I personally liked how there were some similarities and differences between the two possible routes. The funny thing is, you don’t really know which one was true. They both just start and end the same way. What happened in between can go both ways. It’s like choose your own adventure. 😛
The “surprising thing” that the synopsis promised wasn’t really surprising though. I pretty much shipped the two characters from the start. I know they were meant to be together. Even though things got so screwed up, I still rooted for them all the way. I think Heart was the only one who refused to see that they’re a good match.
I think that the problem with Heart is that she took things to the extreme. She was so hung up over her name, which is actually pretty common. I see no wrong as being called such, except for the body organ teasing. She also distanced herself too much from romantic relationships because of her past. She needed to find the middle ground, or maybe the person who could change her ways.
OVERALL, Ask Again Later is entertaining and funny with a wonderful ending to stick around for. It’s not perfect, and it was a little predictable, but it’s definitely worth the read. Having the story told in dual storylines shows all the possibilities that our choices lead to, but maybe, just maybe, some things are truly meant to be.
