Book of the Day: Prom Anonymous by Blake Nelson


Laura, Jace and Chloe are high school juniors who have been friends since childhood. Laura is the type-A organizer who considers herself an expert. After all, she did go to prom with her popular senior boyfriend, Mike, the year before. Jace, the jock, wants to ask Paul, the new hot guy on the tennis team with a mysterious past. Chloe, the artistic one, lives on the fringe – reading from dead poets, wearing black, and hanging out in the world history section at Barnes and Noble. Chloe, in an unguarded moment, agrees to go to prom, and Laura makes it her life’s mission to find Chloe a date in the twenty one days before the big event.

The story is told with a lot of humor and some drama, and highlights the excitement that leads up to the “big event.” Finally, the three girls are ready for prom – but will it turn out as expected? Will Laura have the super romantic evening she’s planned for her and Mike? Will Jace discover Paul’s secret past? How will Chloe handle her first date ever with Zach?
