Prom Kings and Drama Queens

Chapter One

Emily Poses Little Threat

Junior year was supposed to be all about Brian Harrington, the prom, and becoming editor in chief of the Crestview Courier. Instead, it was all about handcuffs, hormones, and headlines.

But in a good way.

Not in a skanky way.

Of course, none of it would have happened if it hadn't been for the summer before eighth grade. That's when twins Brandy and Randy Clausen, my former best friends forever, decided it would be fun to create an I Hate Emily club.

For no apparent reason, except perhaps that I did not get the memo that we were no longer wearing horizontal-striped shirts from the Limited Too, I had been thrust from the inner circle. After an entire eighth grade of being excluded from every shopping trip, sleepover, and party, I vowed I would someday get back at one or both twins.

Around the same time that summer, a hurricane named Emily was in the news. I watched the headlines every day as they shouted: Emily Roars Across Caribbean, Emily Blasts Through Gulf, or, My personal favorite, Emily Rocks South Florida. After reading those headlines each morning for days, I decided two things:

1. I really liked seeing my name in print. And,

2. I wanted to be like that Emily in the headlines.

To take the world by storm.

Not that I wanted to knock over mango trees or whip power lines across the sky like spaghetti. But I wanted to rock in my own way.

Veni, vidi¿Or in English, I came, I saw, I read Prom Kings and Drama Queens. And it was fantastic. To tell the truth, I had my doubts about this book when I first saw it just because of the title. I thought it was going to be another one of those girly and overdramatic stories. But I was pleasantly surprised. This is the story of Emily Bennet, a junior in high school who aspires to be the editor in chief of her school newspaper and the girlfriend of the Boy Next Door and to do something great. The chapter titles as newspaper headlines about Hurricane Emily are cute and help compare Emily¿s life with a natural storm, meaning sometimes she knows where she¿s going and sometimes things are just unpredictable. I think the ending was a bit too cutesy and perfect for my taste, but it does wrap the story up well as the novel leaves Emily with a sense of self-accomplishment. I would recommend this book for younger teens and middle-schoolers. I found this book an easy and short read, so I don't think older teens would get to much into it.

It was a great book. Emily Bennet is a highschool student who wants to take the world by storm. This is her to do list. 1. Get the attention of Brian Harrington a.k.a basketball player, and eventually go to prom with him. 2. She wants to write an awesome story for her highschool newspaper so she can become editor next year instead of her arch enemy Daniel Cummings. I would recommend this book to anyone 12 and up. Its really good if you like to write for a newspaper like her someday.

It took me almost two days to finish this book, and there are parts where I think it just dragged on, but overall, I think it was a good read. The story definitely picked up towards the end.It made me wonder who she'll end up with, Brian or Daniel? It was kind of frustrating to see how it was all about Brian until almost the very end, and then suddenly it shifted to Daniel. I kind of feel a bit disappointed on that aspect of the story. But at least Emily realized and understood herself before everything ended.I loved Lily. She wasn't just this old lady who craves attention. She was a smart woman, and I was glad Emily had met her.

What can I say, I am a sucker for high school books when the girl falls for the unexpected guy. Short but sweet story of the high school overachiever crushing on the hunky jock neighbor but falling for the guy with substance.

The protagonist has set several goals to be met this school year. Along the way many lessons are learned and several unexpected things occur. A journalist sometimes must report the news but may also need to offer advice; and sometimes the journalist becomes the news. In this story not only are there prom kings and queens but drama queens and kings as well, and we are not talking about a deck of cards or may be we are. Take the ride to South Florida and meet the folks at Crestview and "see" how they are living and enjoy some laughs along the way to adventure, drama, and unexpected connections.
