REVIEW

A Prom to Remember follows seven teenagers while they get ready for the biggest night of their lifes: Prom Night!

PROS

Diversity. Sandy Hall always knows how to write a story for everyone -  a story that doesn't leave anyone left out. In A Prom to Remember the author offers a cast of diverse characters (from ethnic groups to social orientations). Hall always tries not to leave anyone left out.

All the fluffiness!  As I mentioned above, Hall writes the the cutest contemporaries. Her stories are always so freaking cute! 😍 If you have never read A Little Something Different, you should definitely do it. It also has multiple point of views (it even has one from a squirrel and another from a bench). 


CONS

Seven points-of-view. There were too many characters (and side characters). It was difficult to keep up with all the story lines and create a connection with any of the kids going to prom. While in A Little Something Different there are also multiple POVs, they are all reflections about how these two people should be together, so I found it easier to connect with them. However, I did like Paisley (she may or may not have reminded me of me back at high school and not really wanting to be part of anything) and Henry, even though his social anxiety wasn't well portrayed.

Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours and the author for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Hall is famous for having a lot of POVs. I think A Little Something Different had like 22, but I find her books to be a lot of fun.
