    "Prom Anonymous" was about three high school juniors who were friends awhile back. Laura has a prom date and she's helping her two friends find their prom dates. Jace was athletic, she was into prom but did not have a date. Chloe was dorky. She was not into prom at all. Yet, Laura was able to convince Chloe into going to prom and help Jace get her date. But as Laura helps her friends, she was lost in the midst and did not end up in a prom 'quite' of her choice.

    "Meh". That's my reaction to this book. Sure, it had a surprising ending. But authors of the books I've read lately really all seemed to have books written with unexpected endings. This wasn't really special to me because it felt like just another prom story.

    In language arts class, we talked about slowing moments down, showing not telling. Lots of parts of this story told, not showed. I would have enjoyed it more if the moments were slowed down a bit.

    This book is about three girls Chloe, Laura and Jace. The girls used to be best friends but have grown apart. Chloe has become a sort of outcast geek, Laura the popular one and Jace is the athlete. Chloe really does not want to go to their prom but Laura and Jace insist. They try to help Chloe as much as they can, trying to help her find a date, a perfect dress and everything else involved with going to prom. Finally the girls find Chloe a date.. but will he be a handsome stud or a geeky loser? Will Chloe be a social outcast at the prom? Will she look beautiful or horrible? Will she embarrass herself in front of everybody? This is what Chloe fears about during the entire book and the answers to those questions will be answered when prom rolls around.

    Meanwhile Laura and Jace have their own problems. Laura has a boyfriend but something seems off about them these days and at work she meets a cute boy that she feels a connection with. Laura is the one who wants everything to be perfect. Perfect date, perfect dress, perfect friends and most importantly perfect night! But will she figure out everything with her boyfriend before prom? And what about that hottie at her work? Will Laura be able to pull everything off? Will trying to unite the three girls be a disaster?

    Jace needs a date and has a crush on this cute tennis player named Paul. She doesn't know if she should ask him to the prom or not. He's good looking and nice but there's something weird about him, something different that Jace intends to figure out. Will Jace be able to figure everything out with Paul or will she be at the prom dateless?

    I read this book awhile ago and I actually enjoyed it a lot. It was very cute and funny. Obviously about girls and their cute boy drama... and prom! Which is always fun. But it's also about friends and trusting them. It definitely kept me interested and I was excited to see how the book would end.

    This book was so realistic. It really shows the struggles of a teenage girl.

    Every junior or senior in high school could relate to this book. It’s about these three girls who are going through the processes of prom: Dates, Prep, and Prom.

    Heres a sneak peek of it- “I want to see Zach,” said Chloe, who was bored. “Can’t I even talk to him?”
    “Chloe, I would advise you not to do anything. Go along with the process. This is prom. Lots of people get fixed.”
    “But what if I hate him?” said Chloe, sticking her finger in her water glass again. “Or what if he’s gorgeous and I fall hopelessly in love with him and he thinks I’m a freak? That’s probably what’ll happen. Oh my God. This is going to be a disaster.”
    “If you don’t act like a freak he won’t think you are one,” said Laura. Take your finger out of your water.”

    Prom Anonymous: Laura, Jace, and Chloe were best friends growing up, but once high school hit, they grew apart and found new (very different) friends. Now they’re juniors, and Laura has decided that nothing would be better than to go to the prom with her two oldest friends. A flurry of planning ensues. Freaky Chloe doesn’t have a date or a dress, and isn’t sure she wants either–after all, the only thing freakier than Chloe is Chloe in a dress with a blind date. Laura is determined to find her an appropriate date. Jace the jock wants to go with the cute new tennis star, but has a difficult time asking him. And Laura is so caught up in planning the perfect evening that she ignores the fact that her relationship with her boyfriend, with whom she has been dating for14 months, is falling apart. Of course, all works out in the end. This is a fun read with decently drawn characters, some serious issues, a fair amount of teenage drinking, and a satisfying ending. Most high school girls will be able to identify with at least one of the main characters.

    i read this book in a couple of hours. it was a really fun, quick read and was perfect for avoiding the reading slump i felt myself slipping into.

    i really liked this book. it was really fun and funny at times. i like how the author was able to tell basically three different stories without it becoming confusing or overwhelming. i did think this book was a bit predictable and that the three main girls seemed much younger than juniors in high school. it seemed like they were in 8th grade or freshman in high school and also the weird girl, chloe, didn't really seem as abnormal as the other characters made her out to be. maybe that was meant to be a part of the story but i dont know. she was a little weird but her abnormality wasnt as drastic as the characters made it seem. those reasons are why i gave it a 4 out of 5. overall, it was a good book. i'm glad i picked it up.

    oh but wait. daniel is a jerk and i have never disliked a character as much as i dislike him. i won't spoil anything but he annoyed me the entire time.

    Three childhood friends reunite to attend prom together and, in the process of finding dates and dresses, gain some surprising insights into themselves.

    It was OK. Not my favorite book...

    This book was entertaining, but honestly nothing more. It’s a very quick read, and I liked reading from each character’s perspective.

    The book , Prom Anonymous, by Blake Nelson is about a girl named Chloe Thomas and her two other frineds. Chloe Thomas wants to go to prom, but she doesn't have a date so her friends took her to a diner and they were talking about it, and since she didn't have a date they started looking for her a one so that they could all go to prom together. This book reminds me of the movie Prom because in the movie they were all frantically looking for people to ask to prom so that they wouldn't be alone, which is exactly what was happening in this book. This book also reminds me of my school because whenever prom comes around I see and hear people planning out who there going to ask, and how they're going to do it. This book doesn't remind me of any other book , because i have never read a book relating to anything of this subject. Overall I really enjoyed this book. It was really interesting to see and feel the anxiety for Chloe as she looked for a date to the prom, I was really on the edge of my seat when the prom was getting close and closer and she still had no date, deep down, even though this was a fictional book, I was really rooting for her. As a girl I really sympathize with the embarassment she felt when she looked around and saw everyone being asked to the dance except for her. This was a very good read and I recommend any teen go pick it up and read it.
