around them Personally, I think most promposals are cheesy and over the top, so I m kind of scratching my own head over why I picked this up to begin with Maybe it was because I had a few expectations going in that didn t play out the way I wanted them to and that disappointed me.The Big Act This book did a great job of addressing every kind of promposal, from cheesy and over the top to cute and romantic Readers saw awkward acceptances, turn downs, kiss and accepts, and even make up promposals It was all just a part of the high school drama I don t know if it s just my school, but we don t have any promposals happen during the school day They happen outside of school where they won t bug the rest of us So the amount of promposals and time spent on them in general throughout this book s school was a bit off putting and hard to connect with But maybe that s just meTest of Character The book is told in alternating POVs of best friends Camilla and Joshua Both were fine characters, though with little depth outside their high school drama Their love interests were clear from the beginning, and they kinda just stuck to that Zach, Camilla s prom date and doting boy, was barely seen He just came into the story when he was needed as a plot point, or when Camilla was complaining about him It was clear the author just used him as a plot point, and didn t care about developing him at all The same is true for Benjamin, Ethan, and any other character outside of the two main characters.Say Cheese but not too loud This book was full of cheesiness Every description of the love interests was mature and freaking annoying Ethan was perfect beyond compare while Benjamin was just so smart and mature and and and I just couldn t take it Their was also an insane amount of dropping to one knee Like, hello, you re in high school Get over yourself I was also looking for a little pizazz, a little twist in the story view spoiler When I read the little summary blurb after picking up the book, I expected Camilla to fall for Zach after he promposes to her, and Ethan to secretly be asking for Joshua s help with a promposal for Joshua hide spoiler Instead, it all just plodded along predictably, nothing new view spoiler The only surprises I saw was that my muchexciting than the actual storyline predicitons didn t pan out hide spoiler Overall, this book just didn t provide anything new By the end I was skimming a bit just to reach the final page This was a very quick and easy read, but it wasn t a breath of fresh air like such books tend to be I received a copy from

awful When a girl said it was The most romantic thing she d seen in her life i strongly disagreed Being pressured into saying yes becuase it s going to be on TV, is anything but romantic I don t get why all these students loved the idea of a promposal so much to be honest What s wrong with people just saying Would you like to go to prom with me why do they find the need to show off and go over the top Overall, an okay read, but the whole promposal thing didn t do it for me Review Promposal is a cute story about two best friends, Camilla and Joshua, hoping against all odds that they will be able to attend prom with the long time objects of their affections Camilla is blindsided by an over the top promposal from a classmate she barely knows There are roses, music and even a news crew How is a girl supposed to answer in the negative when the whole world is watching including the proposer with such a hopeful look on his face I really felt for Camilla Although h Review Promposal is a cute story about two best friends, Camilla and Joshua, hoping against all odds that they will be able to attend prom with the long time objects of their affections Camilla is blindsided by an over the top promposal from a classmate she barely knows There are roses, music and even a news crew How is a girl supposed to answer in the negative when the whole world is watching including the proposer with such a hopeful look on his face I really felt for Camilla Although her experience is over the top, I think many of us can relate to being in awkward positions that leave us feeling frustrated and powerless During the weeks before prom, Camilla becomes closer to her crush, Benjamin, thanks to a group project in psychology class But since she s already going to prom with her unwanted promposer I totally just made that up I think , Benjamin is only willing to take their growing relationship so far In the end Camilla needs to decide what the smartest AND kindest course of action is She also has to learn to communicate not her strong suit in this situation with both her prom date and her crush There are plenty of awkward stumbles along the way as Camilla learns to accept that her prom experience won t be EXACTLY what she expected Camilla s best friend, Joshua, has had a crush on his other BFF, Ethan, for as long as he can remember Their such good friends that Joshua is afraid of admitting his feelings and ruining one of the two best friendships he has When Ethan asks him to help plan a promposal for another guy in their class, Joshua is heartbroken But since they are friends he ll do it Just as in Camilla s situation, Joshua has to learn not only how to communicate with Ethan but also decide if the possible fall out of confessing his feelings is worth the risk.As I stated before, I think most people can identify with these two teens and the awkward scenarios they are trying to struggle through The story is told in the first person POV and chapters alternate between Camilla and Joshua The style worked well in this book since the two of them were such close friends and they could believably tell parts of each other s stories As a reader the only thing I really missed was Benjamin and Ethan s POV I was very curious as to what their thought processes were and why they made the decisions they did Promposal ended up being a perfect afternoon read that let me escape for a little while I definitely recommend it if you are looking for the same thing.Nat Spoiler Alert Camila has a secret crush that might surprise her with a proposal but everything goes wrong

I also think that he was a really wonderful character Second of all, Benjamin also was really sweet but he was really intense at some parts and very romantic But Camila was a little underestimated and to annoying in some points of the book I liked how the author made everything flow in Finally, the conflict is when Camila finds out that Joshua and Benjamin are cousins and that she ruins her chance by going with Joshua The conflict is person vs person I like how the author made everything flow in My favorite part was when Joshua actually gives Camila a surprise by calling Benjamin and telling him to come and share prom next to her side Also, I really like when Benjamin asked Camila to be her girlfriend because that was the most intense moment The theme of the this story is Romance because how Benjamin and Camila fight to be together After all, In conclusion I would rate this book a 5 star because of the intense between Benjamin, Camila, and Joshua.I would recommend This book to people

storyline in this was okay, but I did find it quite cringe worthy at points I found the whole idea of a promposal pretty embarrassing, and I am so glad I never had to attend a prom I couldn t quite believe how over the top people were, and how seriously they took the whole thing I mean really I just don t get why a stupid high school dance is so important There was romance in this, but I didn t really get into it.The ending to this was okay, but I was pretty glad that the book was over really.Overall a little cringe worthy 6 out of 10 This book would have been a lotinteresting if it was solely focused on Joshua with Camilla being a side character.

list Okay, maybe not everything, but other novels for sure The interesting thing with Promposal was that it is written by Rhonda Helms, who mastered her hit new adult novel, One Broke Girl, which I

of adoring novels by fabulous authors, I tend to add all of the author s other works to my TBR list Okay, maybe not everything, but other novels for sure The interesting thing with Promposal was that it is written by Rhonda Helms, who mastered her hit new adult novel, One Broke Girl, which I immediately fell in love with as I started reading it When I requested this one from the library, I had no idea that it is written by her, or literally by any other author I ve read a book by This makes my whole experience ten times better, even though I discovered this truth after I flipped over the last pages of this book Promposal is one of those books that you strictly read for entertainment You don t find yourself being too strict on structure, plot, characters, or any of that the concept and events simply captivate you and leave you flipping over the quick pages of the book It turned out to be great, but then again, it s not one of those YA novels with a concept that you d like to see again anywhere else It s just it s one one time thing about the cheesiness of high school, and every teenage girl s dream to be asked to prom by the hottest guy in school I must admit that I ve had those dreams, too.I can t help myself over squealing because of the romance here Helms focused on two very, very different couples Camilla and Benjamin and Joshua with Ethan She flips between the two perspectives of them dealing with their own personal lives, finding the perfect way to impress their crushes, and them continuing their friendship, confiding in everything Now that s what I call a memorable relationship Boy girl friendships seriously rule, and Joshua alongside Camilla were the perfect match I loved the portrayal of their social standings as well.This was completely fabulous, but then again, the cheesiness at the start of the novel kind of turned me away from reading this I wasn t a fan of this at first, but knew that I d obviously finish it because it s such a quick, short readThe whole act of promposals didn t really look fascinating at firstThe cheesiness of Camilla, a quiet girl, having a crush on a hot, pretty popular guy is obviously clich and found in almost every chick flick out there Do I really want a repeat of my tween years, watching Mean Girls and all of those films Promposal, like I usually say about contemporary novels, isn t for everyone It s all about prom, and doesn t really go deep into a particular subject as you wish it could It s all girly, cheesy and particularlyfor a tween, I guess But hey, if you enjoy horrible novels, which this kind of is in a way, filled with drama, then I d definitely go for this Remember, it s entertaining The best promposal is the one that comes from the heart It doesn t try too hard It s confident without being arrogant or fake It shows that you understand the person, have taken the time to pay attention and learn him Nothing isflattering than feeling like someone gets you Fun and easy read Reading
