Back Cover: The prom. It's supposed to be one of the best nights of your life. Or, at least, you're supposed to have a good time. But what if you'd rather be going with your best friend's date than your own? What if a sinister underground society of students has spiked the punch? What if your date turns out to be more of a frog than a prince? Or what if he's (literally) an ape? There are ways you can fight it. You can protest the silliness of the regular prom by hosting a backwards prom- also known as a morp. You can throw a prom for fat girls. You can stay at home to watch old teen movies and get your cute neighbor and his cuter brother to join you. You can dance to your own music. Here, 21 of the funniest, most imaginative writers today create their own kind of prom stories. Some are triumphs. Some are disasters. But each one is a night you'll never forget. All these authors are great! Some of these are my favorite authors too. But all these prom stories kinda would seem like it'd be too much prom. It kinda was, but then it wasn't! Because they were all so unique and different. I loved it. I'd have to say my prom was just pretty much normal. I went to dinner before with my boyfriend and one of my friends. Then I just danced the night away and have a great time. Me and my boyfriend actually ended up being Prom King and Prom Queen. Now that was def amazing.But yeah, I'd like people to read this before they go to their proms and get some other perspectives ya know?
