Prom is something that all of us must experience in our life, it’s like a party ender for high school, telling you survive and on your way to the next level of your life, College. A Prom to Remember is about seven senior high school students and one prom. 7 characters comes with seven different perspectives for their upcoming prom. All of them has their differences, their own fears and problems from keeping them to have a perfect magical prom. Having 7 characters with alternating POVs might be hard to remember them at first but you’ll get used to it, each character is also connected to each other giving us the bigger picture for their prom.
Overall I enjoyed reading the book because it has a diverse and realistic characters. I love the LGBT representation because we need more of those also the portraying of the characters to discovering the tough life of young adulthood. It’s a fun fluffy contemporary read that everyone would enjoy. I can’t wait to read the other book from the author.
