Announcing A PROM TO REMEMBER by Sandy Hall!
Until I started writing my latest book, I didn’t think I remembered anything about my prom.
Which isn’t all that weird, considering it was (gulp) eighteen years ago. I started going through pictures and texting my high school friends random questions. No one remembered what the prom song was, but we all remembered what we wore. Though I imagine that’s thanks to pictures like this little number:
(I blurred my friends’ faces to protect the innocent.)
The more I thought about prom, the more I remembered. Sitting in traffic on the way to the venue. My friend getting in trouble for smoking in the bathroom. Slow dancing with my long time crush to Lady in Red.
This rush of memories led me to a new theory: that prom has a way of being unforgettable. Like anything else, the details slip away after a while, but it leaves an impression. Good, bad, or indifferent, if you were there you have a story or a scar to show for it.
I hope that’s what I captured in my new book, appropriately titled, A Prom to Remember.
The book follows seven seniors during the weeks leading up to the big dance.
Cameron, Cora, Henry, Jacinta, Lizzie, Otis, and Paisley all have problems. All of those problems can be blamed on THE PROM. If they can just make it to the dance, then hopefully it’ll be smooth sailing from there.
But first they have to get through long-time boyfriends, double-blind friendships, too many dates, not enough dates, work schedules that interfere, getting grounded, and the general anxiety that surrounds events this big.
Even once the dance has started it’s one problem after the next, putting out fires all over the place. (There are no literal fires. There is a literal flood, though.)
In the end, it’s a night they’ll never forget. The good. The bad. The indifferent. Perfect proms do not exist and this one will certainly be A PROM TO REMEMBER.
