Overview

When Azure's principal gives her the chance to turn the school's traditional (and boring) senior prom into an event that will appeal to everyone, not just the jocks and cheerleaders, she jumps at the opportunity. Soon Azure manages to convince her best friends, Luke and Radhika, to join the prom committee as well.

Facing heavy opposition and admittedly clueless about prom logistics, the three friends are nonetheless determined to succeed -- if Luke's and Azure's secret crushes on Radhika don't push the committee members, and their friendships, to the breaking point first.

Told in two voices and filled with comical missed connections, It's Our Prom (So Deal With It) explores the ups and downs of planning an alternative prom -- while dealing with an unrequited crush on your best friend -- and shines with National Book Award finalist Julie Anne Peters's unmistakable wit and insight.

Editorial Reviews

The Bulletin
"Refreshingly realistic...a highly readable tale with a little something for everyone."
SLJ
"A fun read about a Denver high school whose idea of inclusivity goes beyond the norm to include all 'geeks, freaks, and uniques.'"
Booklist
"There are plenty of comedic missed and mixed messages...Romance readers will enjoy this alternative peek at prom."
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Azure has a secret crush on her best friend, Radhika, but so does her other best friend, Luke, who happens to be bisexual. When Azure's principal asks her to join the senior prom committee to make it more inclusive, she jumps at the chance, but having no idea how to organize a prom, she enlists her friends' help. From the first meeting, organization goes awry with a clueless advisor and only one member who has ever been involved in planning the event. Fundraisers fall flat, the hotel ballroom burns, and friendships are almost lost, but predictably, in the end, the committee pulls off the best-attended prom ever, replete with royalty, poetry slam, and a drag show. The story is told in alternating chapters by Azure and Luke, with subplots revealing familial issues, such as Radhika's strained relationship with her education-minded parents, old and new romances, and Luke's coming out "musidramedy." While many readers will be a step ahead of the next plot twist, they should still enjoy a fun read about a Denver high school whose idea of inclusivity goes beyond the norm to include all "geeks, freaks, and uniques."—Betty S. Evans, Missouri State University, Springfield

    Reviewed by Alice D. for Readers Favorite

    "It's Our Prom" offers a delightful and well-written look at teens and their world of friends, school, and, yes, proms. Azure, Radhika, and Luke have been friends for a long time and now are in high school together. Azure is lesbian and Luke is certain that he is bisexual. Both of them like Radhika in a more than just friends way, and they reach out tentatively to others who may be gay. And so Azure and Luke take turns telling this coming of age story that covers teenagers' ups and downs. Azure has been told by the high school principal that she can help turn the senior prom into an event that will appeal to everyone, but prom funds are low and there are few places that can accommodate several hundred high school students. Luke is involved in producing an original musical while helping his older brother Owen run a limousine service. But will the prom be a success and will Luke's play be the success that he wishes for?

    "It's Our Prom" is a well-written and well-edited teenage story that deals very well with the lives of kids who seek alternate life styles. The plot proceeds to the end with the twists and turns and ups and downs in the lives of all teenagers. Author Julie Anne Peters accurately portrays how faculty prom advisers have problems of their own and the teenagers looking to them for help try to solve the myriad of problems that go with putting on a prom in their own teenager ways. This is a refreshing look at teenagers and their world.

    Follows her quietly, rubbing her shoulder. "He's still scared from the inhabitation, sweetheart. Don't take him seriously." He nuzzles her cheek fondly and curls around her.

    She rests her head on his shoulder and smiles sadly. "My ex took my baby away from me. His name is Justin. He would be three now." She closes her eyes and leans into him.
