AreYOU ready for Prom?
Prom! Oh, the anticipation and memories that one word captures. There are so may books written about Prom (check out our display in the YA Room) and I just finished a great one. It was the cleverly written 24 Girls in 7 Days by Alex Bradley. What's a guy to do when there's only a week to prom and he has no date in sight? Well, if you have the kind of friends that Jack Grammar has, you don't have to do much. Except date 24 girls in 7 days, after they run an on-line add that makes Jack the hottest ticket in town. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it. Although predictable at times, it manages to dig deeper than you would first expect. There are a few twists that kept me reading, and I found myself rooting for Jack. I won't give anything away, but I was pretty happy with the ending. I actually wished that there was a sequel, I found myself wanting to know more about Jack and his friends. So whether you're going to Prom or not, schedule a date with this book! (I know...super cheesy, but I couldn't help myself!!)
