A Prom to Remember Review

    I have been all about the contemporaries lately and this book just looks like so much fun! I get a serious High School Musical vibe from the synopsis and I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds. Sounds like a prefect read for prom season.

    LIKED: Realistic teens, cute couples, fun friendships, relatable feelings.MEH: I get that the prom is the central plot, but a lot of the scenes felt really slice-of-life instead of essential.

    I enjoyed the story. It's cute, most part seems very realistic minus a few parts are to those rom com prom movies. But overall very enjoyable and could relate to every character. One story in hear I loved the most and worked out to how I wanted it to so I'm happy.

    Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review....I really enjoyed this light-hearted story. At times I got confused by all the characters, but I kind of loved the soap opera feel of the whole thing. There was a big six-degrees of Kevin Bacon feel going on in this story which was fun. Sure, parts of the story are a little bit too convenient - but it's YA...that's what happens. I would definitely recommend this to readers who enjoy books with a John Hughes movie feel to them.

    Fun romantic read that will be a hit with some of my students. Prom is something that everyone knows about and this story takes a cast of characters on a journey toward their prom night and all the adventures and personal growth that come with it. This was a cute book! Thanks netgalley!

    ***Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC***This book meet and exceeded all my expectation that I had for it. Seven seniors, one prom and all the hijinks, fears and fun that are expected on prom night. Everyone has something that is holding them back from fully living the "true prom experience" for all different reasons but the night of the prom everyone is able to push their differences (or fears) aside and live it up...just how they want it to be. Sandy Hall is becoming a favorite of mine for many re ***Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC***This book meet and exceeded all my expectation that I had for it.

    why do i keep reading books from this author? If i know i’m not a fan, why do i do this to myself?readable with bland, one-dimensional characters, and an ok storyline. lizzie’s point of view is totally unnecessary though.biggest problem: HENRYhe has social anxiety. thats his whole character. BUT. the author doesn’t present his illness very accurately in my opinion. she makes it seem just....wrong somehow? i don’t know how to explain it exactly; i know she isn’t trying to offend people, but she m why do i keep reading books from this author?

I think it doesn’t help that his best friend Paige is not very supportive of this fact, and makes him do things he doesn’t want to do, making it seems she doesn’t care about social anxiety...yeah.

    I was skeptical when I read that the story was told from 7(!) points of view. {I wonder if that’s a record?} Anyway, I was skeptical, but Hall made it work and she made it work wonderfully! A sweet, fun read. I didn’t have a favorite character/plot line which you’d think one or two would stand out. They weaved together and blended perfectly. The different backgrounds (socially & ethnicity) of each character didn’t feel forced or contrived. Side note: I just LOVE the cover.

    Super cute, fluffy, contemporary read! Totally a mix of the Disney movie Prom and Love, Actually. Perfect coming of age story that reminds you of your high school days and problems! I recommend it to anyone looking for something quick and easy to read as well as those looking for lovable characters!

    a cute contemporary read, but I just didn't get into the story until a little passed the halfway point. I felt like it was kind of slow.

    Very well-written young adult novel--excellent characterization. I was fully prepared not to like the book and thoroughly enjoyed it! I absolutely could not put it down and was immersed in the character's lives. Good read.
