Overview

Their prom night ended in a jail cell with forty of their closest friends. But that’s hardly the worst thing that happened to them…

When the principal announces prom is canceled this year, senior Riley Hart is determined to save it. Armed with little more than her own enthusiasm, she ends up working closely with Owen Locklear, who is more than completely off-limits. Because he’s the boyfriend of her ex-BFF, Catherine Reed. Still, Owen knows Riley better than almost anyone, and his charming ideas for turning the prom upside-down and backward win Riley over.

Catherine is willing to join Owen and Riley on the prom committee, but only because her legacy as prom queen is at stake. She’s already suffocating under the weight of her parents’ expectations for after senior year, and compared to that, ensuring prom happens should be easy. At least until everything starts to go wrong.

First they lose their deposit. Then they book a band full of octogenarians. And lose their venue... Twice.

Riley will have an unforgettable teenage experience, damn it, if it’s the last thing she does…

Event after event of chaos! Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Teen for the opportunity to read and review Prom-Wrecked by T. H. Hernandez and Jennifer DiGiovanni! The opening, showing the ragged and imprisoned state of the teen prom attendees, made me curious and the book didn’t let me down. The group of prom planners and prom goers dealt with a mountain of tumultuous events before the prom ever started and then prom was eventful with completely different issues. The characters are realistic, overwhelmed and anxious, just like real teenagers. Drama, of course takes a part in this story but so does maturity, loyalty and perseverance. Riley, Catherine and Owen are the three main characters, each with distinct personalities and Owen is in the middle of all the action. Fun and with a message of prevailing justice makes Prom-Wrecked an interesting read, 5 stars! * I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary review consideration and all opinions and thoughts are my own.

Cute Book with the Biggest Case of Murphy’s Law Ever! Hello and welcome to my review of Prom-Wrecked! I originally picked up this book because of the super intriguing premise. I mean it’s about a prom that lands the senior class in jail! If that’s not intriguing I don’t know what is! I originally wanted to read this book because of all the fun drama that the synopsis promised me, but I’m starting to learn that maybe I don’t actually enjoy dramatics in books. I think my issue mainly stems from the fact that there was nothing in the book that didn’t cause drama! Literally EVERYTHING that could go wrong with prom, managed to go wrong! I was expected a lot to go wrong from the synopsis, but I figured there’d be some positive points as well? And maybe if I strained my eyes a bit I could find the bits and pieces that went right, but it would take me a lot of effort. I also didn’t feel like there was the greatest resolution to the whole prom fiasco, and so the ending was a bit anticlimactic after everything that went wrong throughout the book. BUT! While I didn’t really enjoy the plot, I did have a pretty good time with the characters. The book is dual perspective and you get to see Riley who is doing her best to ensure prom will happen, and Catherine, Riley’s ex best friend, who wants prom to happen so that she could become prom queen like her mother expects her too. Even though I couldn’t always distinguish between the two voices, I appreciated that the characters didn’t follow the tropes I expected. For example, I also expected that there was going to be quite a bit of miscommunication since the romantic entanglements are quite complicated, but to my delighted surprise, there wasn’t any! Additionally, while Catherine is the popular girl who ended her friendship with Riley in a less than stellar fashion years back, she isn’t a villain. She knows what mistakes she made, feels bad about them, and does her best to make up for her past actions. I did feel that the side characters weren’t as fleshed out as I’d have liked them to be, but it didn’t bother me too much since I enjoyed both of the main characters perspectives. This isn’t a super complex book, but if you’re in the mood for a cute book with the biggest case of Murphy’s law ever, this is definitely the read for you!

This is the first time I have read T.H. Hernandez but it won't be the last. The author is able to create a fun, humors set of characters and story that will have readers finishing the story with a smile on their face. There are several different points of view which the author is able to keep readers hearing each characters different voices without confusing the readers who is who. Readers will be able to connect with the characters as they struggle with life decision and their futures. This story is for Young Adults but will have those of us who are older becoming a little nostalgic for when we were struggle with those same decision. Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher Entangled Publishing Teen for the Advance copy of T.H Hernandez and Jennifer DiGiovanni Prom- Wrecked.

Prom-Wrecked is the ultimate story of organising Morp. That’s Prom spelt backwards. The organiser of Prom has missed the mark when it comes to fundraising. Riley, with the push of her friend decides to take over the event. An unlikely team are put together to save the day. What I like about this story is that it’s told from two girls point of views rather than the love interests POV. Catherine and Riley have a history. Now all the signs are there for Riley being interesting in Catherine’s boyfriend. The problem is Catherine isn’t being completely honest with herself. The title fits well with the Story and this is going to be one messy ride. 4 stars out of 5. *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. *I received an arc of this book from entangled publishing via netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Okay. Books told in alternating point of views tend to be confusing but this one actually flowed pretty well. I appreciate the fact that there weren't any time jumps and just continued on from the previous chapter. This book was SO GOOD i could not put it down. This book was full of humor, especially when it came to the chapters narrated by Riley. The other chapters were narrated by Catherine, Riley's former best friend. While Riley's narration tended to be more on the humorous side, Catherine's tended to be more serious and real. Catherine's struggles with being herself around her mom is something I'm sure many people have gone through but the character development was honestly one of my favorite parts.

It's a fun read, I enjoyed the story and especially loved how it's told. Riley is trying to save the prom because it isn't something that can be canceled. Every school has it and theirs will too. If no one steps in then they must save it themselves and that is how a bunch of teenagers ended up in a jail cell. I think that this is a very well-written book and has some of the most interesting characters that I have encountered in fiction. I loved it and would recommend it to all YA fans.

Prom-Wrecked was absolutely adorable and impossible to put down! The characters leaped off of the pages and the story constantly had me wondering what was going to happen next. Between the characters and the scenes that made me smile, I loved this book! So if you adore ya romance with complicated friendships, swoon worthy guys, epic disasters and a story that will touch your heart, then definitely pick up Prom Wrecked! On that very first page was a group of high school kids in jail. And it was all because their Prom night went horribly wrong. From there we jumped back two months and watched how it all lead to that fateful day. It was an insanely crazy ride getting there! Friendships, betrayal, jealousy, love and finding their true selves was splashed across the pages. But one of my favorite things was that this book was unlike anything I've ever read before since we alternated between two ex-bffs, Riley and Catherine. First off we met Riley Hart. She was passionate, tried her hardest, but she was self-conscious at times. And while she kind of faded into the background around her classmates, to me she felt like the girl next door. She was super involved with activities at school, but she had never officially been in charge of anything. So when Riley found out that her Senior Prom was cancelled, for the first time in her life she took charge of something. She was going to give her classmates a Prom. And her childhood friend aka the guy she had crushed on forever, Owen, promised to help her out. I absolutely loved Owen Locklear! While he came across as popular and a great baseball player, I loved that he'd geek out and game with Riley. They're gaming talk and banter made my heart race. And the way Owen and Riley connected had me smiling and swooning. Especially when Owen tried his hardest to help Riley with Prom. But there was one tiny problem when it came to Riley and Owen. Owen was Catherine's boyfriend. While I definitely shouldn't have been lusting for Owen and Riley to kiss, the heart wants what the heart wants..... Ironically, I didn't connect to Catherine Reed at first. She came across as a little prissy and she tried so hard to be perfect. But before I knew it, Catherine became my favorite. While she was a cheerleader, who seemed destined to be her school's Prom Queen, there was so much more to her than she showed the world. Underneath it all was a girl that made my heart clutch for her. Her relationship with her mom, her relationship with Owen and even her relationship with her friends pulled at my heart. Catherine was flawed, loveable and I kept rooting for her to figure out her life and truly be happy. So as the story progressed, I loved watching her grow. And I loved even more that Jordan had a huge role in helping her out with that. Jordan Oswald snuck up on me, just like Catherine. Before I knew it, I was obsessed with him and added him to my book boyfriend list. Jordan was sexy, charming and also inconspicuous at the same time. He easily captured my heart and it was impossible not to smile when he was around. So when Jordan and Catherine started to work together, for Prom, I loved their interactions and seeing how their friendship grew. And again, I found myself wishing for a different couple to form. This time I was rooting for Jordan and Catherine. You could feel the electricity and sparks between them, any time they were near each other. While Riley and Catherine told us this story, Owen and Jordan played such a hu

I loved this book. It was like getting two books in one. The book is told from the points of view of Catherine and Riley. They each want prom to happen for their own reasons, but things keep happening to prevent prom. This book takes the time honored tradition of prom, and turns it on its head. It's a wonderfully told story that proves even with all the planning in the world, not everything will go as planned. I look forward to reading more from both these authors.

“C’mon, Riley. It’s not like we’ll end up in jail over prom.” Famous last words. That’s exactly what happens! ‘Prom-Wrecked’ begins with a bunch of the kids who attended prom (affectionately called ‘morp’ in this book) in a jail cell. What follows is an account of the two disastrous months leading up to morp, told by two of the main characters, Evil Skater Girl and Morp Queen. This book is essentially Murphy’s Law: Prom Edition. Morp Queen and House of Lock have been the ‘it’ couple at school for the past three and a half years. Morp Queen used to be best friends with Evil Skater Girl but they don’t speak anymore. Evil Skater Girl has had a secret crush on House of Lock for about a decade but because he’s dating her ex-best friend, they mostly only talk online while they’re slaying aliens together. When their school cancels this year’s senior prom it’s up to the students to organise one themselves. Evil Skater Girl is happy to help out but wants to palm off the leadership role to someone else. Unfortunately there are no takers so Evil Skater Girl finds herself in charge of the committee. She’s overwhelmed by the task ahead of her but it helps that she’ll be spending plenty of time with House of Lock. Then things start to go wrong. They lose their deposits. They lose their venue. Evil Skater Girl doesn’t have a date. It’s one thing after another. Their prom may not go to plan but it will certainly be a night they’ll never forget, even if they want to. My expectations were probably too high going into this book. I thought the blurb would only mention a small percentage of the calamities that befall our senior class so I was looking forward to finding out what amusing and increasingly bizarre hurdles weren’t already mentioned. Learning the reasons why so many people wound up in a jail cell was fun, but I would have preferred if the blurb didn’t give so many clues to the preceding disasters away. I had trouble getting into the story. I’d hoped for a lot of humour because of the Murphy’s Law prom concept but I found the initial planning phase quite tedious at times. However, it is difficult to transform committee meetings into something fascinating to read about. I didn’t find either of the girls’ voices that distinctive; at times I only knew who was narrating if I picked the book up mid-chapter by what they were talking about, not how they spoke. The resolution between Evil Skater Girl and Morp Queen felt too easy and although I tried to fall in love with him, House of Lock fell flat for me. I really liked Desmond and would have liked to spend more time with him. I also enjoyed hanging out with both Hunter and Jordon (and even Jordon’s car, Sarah). Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Teen, an imprint of Entangled Publishing, LLC, for the opportunity to read this book. P.S. For those who want to know the characters’ actual names, Morp Queen is Catherine, Evil Skater Girl is Riley and House of Lock is Owen.
