Prom and Prejudice

How early do you start thinking about prom? There are a number of great prom reads out there to help get you in the spirit, and it may just help with those winter blahs.

Coming soon (as in already on order) is Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg. And here is a fun trailer for it . . .

Other great prom reads include

Prom by Laurie Halse Anderson

Ashley Hannigan does. not. care. about. prom. At all. But everyone else does - including her best friend Natalia, who is head of the committee. But when the faculty advisor steals all of the prom money, Ashley suddenly finds herself helping to put a dance together with almost nothing. Anderson is one of my favorite teen authors and I heartily recommend this book.

Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby

Look, I love a good zombie book. And what can be better than an unpopular girl who is trying to protect her boyfriend from the clutches of the cheerleading captain inflicting a zombie virus on the entire school? Nothing. Nothing is better. Quite a fun read.

Top 10 Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress by Tina Ferraro

When you get stood up for the prom, what do you do with the dress? Nicolette is forced to answer this and other questions while she tries to manage her own feelings and help her parents navigate through their divorce. Touching and funny.

Prom Anonymous by Blake Nelson

Chloe Thomas is going to the prom. Of course, she doesn’t have a date, she needs a dress, and she's the last person anyone expects to see there. Why on earth did she agree to do this?

Prom Dates from Hell by Rosemary Clement-Moore (a part of the Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil series)

When her classmates start falling prey to bizarre accidents, the intrepid reporter Maggie Quinn can't ignore the story. In the end Maggie will end up throwing down with a demon at her senior prom. That probably won't happen at yours, but it sure is fun reading about the Nancy Drew wannabe with a supernatural twist Maggie Quinn.
