But no matter what your opinion is, you are bound to love at least one of these five prom-related books.

Will Work for Prom Dress by Aimee Ferris.  The story of a girl who is just trying to make it through senior year, but keeps being dragged into her friend’s crazy schemes to try and get prom dates.

Tessa Masterson Will Go To Prom by Emily Franklin.  A boy confesses his feelings for his female best friend, only to find out that she has asked another girl to prom.  Now he has to decide if he will help defend her against the riled up small town community.

Happy reading!
