1 girl + 1 prom + 3 guys = Prom Impossible!

Cassidy decides her senior year, including prom, will be about Michael Greenwood, the boy destined to be her soul mate. One problem. He hasn’t figured that out yet.

But certain events meant as innocent pranks—that weren’t completely her fault—introduce her to Zeke, the reformed bad boy. And cutting deals in the boys’ bathroom with

Rating: 3.25 stars

This book ended up being a nice surprise. I bought it for free on iBooks, so I didn't expect much. However, I ended up really enjoying it! The main character had such a unique voice, and I liked reading from her point of view. My only criticism of her was she was very vulnerable- and not in a good way. She took everything as an insult and cared waaaay too much about how other people saw her. Nevertheless, she was strong-willed and seeing her concoct elaborate plans (just to hav

Expecting a cheesy prom read, I was hoping for the best, with crossed fingers of course. But then, BOOM this is what this book came at me with in the end:



So our lesson over here is don't judge a book by their cover.. or summary/look. We all expected a book that has to deal with a disaster prom, but this is something else. This book deals with true and pure reality, and about days in the life of many teenagers o

From the moment I started reading this book I fell in love with it. It's just one of those sweet teen reads where the girl can't get the boy she actually loves and problems occur throughout that help her finally see the true meaning of love. I love how easy it is to relate to the characters and how you can actually compare your life to the life of Cassidy. Overall I gave it 5 stars because I highly recommend that you read it and its free at the moment so it's a a must have!!

Well, that was no fun.

I'm usually a sucker for contemporary romance but this book is the worst. I'm sorry, but it is. The cover is super cute and I thought the book will be like that as well. What a disappointment it was.

description

Cassidy, the protagonist is just ridiculous. The talks too much AND she talks nonsence, she makes one bad decision after another. Every word that goes out of her mout is a lie, she's fuul of teen angst and that's just tiring. She's 17 but she's acting like a 12yo. So sad.

*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*

This story was exactly what it says in the synopsis: a modern-day Shakespearean romantic comedy... which had me laughing out loud throughout the entire story. One thing that I loved about this book is that Cassidy was easy to connect with, showing how stressful of a time high school can be, and how much you strive to be accepted and loved by peers and friends, but that it takes to courage to do what she did and find a way to overcome al

Hard to get through

Although the general story was good, the narration was difficult to get through and the end felt very rushed. Almost as if the author was just as done with writing the story as I was reading it. The main character was incredibly annoying... She rambles which I guess is supposed to be cute and endearing, but it was just tiresome and corny. The main character acts more like she is twelve than seventeen and does weird over the top impulsive things that any normal, sane, person wi

I loved how the blurb compares this to a modern day Shakespearean comedy: spot on!

Truly, this story has shades of the mixed up romantic mess of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The main character, Cassidy, has her sights on going to prom with Michael, an adorable geek, but he barely notices her. So her plan is to use Jasper, the popular jock, to make Michael jealous, but when the Jasper plan starts to backfire, Cassidy gets even more creative: "I wanted to use Zeke to make Jasper jealous to make Micha

This is a story about Cassidy and her personal journey during her senior year of high school. It begins with disaster, but ends with a great deal of self realization.

A fun young adult novel featuring the humor in angst readers can enjoy from the comfort of the couch even after high school and laugh at how serious the issues felt at the time. Full of unique characters and numerous teen antics this was a fun read. A touching tale of coming of age, getting what you wish for, and self discovery.

Drama follows Cassidy around all the time. She’s a magnet to it and she has a habit of getting herself into stupid situations that sometimes end badly. I found it very funny throughout and I’m looking forward to read more from her.

I enjoyed this book....it wasn't especially thrilling or very different from other young adult books I have read, but I still thought it was a good read and it is worth reading. I liked the characters and this book has a happy ending....so if you like those things I would recommend.

Prom impossible was very intriguing and I couldn't put it down. When I would read Prom Impossible I would feel like the character in the book would feel. I think that the settings in the book are important; they help to explain into more depth of what id going on. I don't like how the main character would alway ramble because it got her into deeper trouble. I also don't like how Jules can spend a year and a half without telling anyone that it was all her fault. I am upset that Jules thought it w

A free digital copy was provided as part of a review opportunity from Xpresso Book Tours.

It’s been a week since I read Prom Impossible and a review should be easy enough to write but on the contrary, I am finding it difficult to do so. You see, I have mixed feelings about this book and while that was effortless to say, articulating my reasons and thoughts is much more complicated.

The book starts out with Cassidy, an incoming senior, and her cousin pulling a prank on the seniors during their prom

She is also a dreamer and paints fantastical scenarios

When I first saw this book and read the synopsis, I was thrilled! I mean, look at that cover! Clearly a YA book since it's about prom, we have a girl in a cute pink dress, and obviously three boys in the background. Perhaps part of my problem was that I had expectations that were too high for this book, and so it would have been pretty difficult for it to meet those standards. I really, really wanted to love this book, but I did not. Instead, I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with it. Som ...more

Opening Thoughts
I think that my expectations for this book were way to high, and that there was no way that this book could have possibly met them. This book was meant for a younger audience, than what I am. I think that this book was better suited for middle school or early high school, and that's not really the reading group that I'm in.

I got a review copy of Prom Impossible a few months ago from Xpresso Book Tours, and, since I am the worst person ever, I completely forgot about it until after I was already supposed to have reviewed it and I felt really bad so I read it right away. So here's my review, two weeks late since I'm the lamest person ever.

I went into this book hoping for a light, cute, fluffy read. And I'm pleased to announce that I did, in fact, get that. This is a fun little read that will definitely have you reminiscing your high school years and prom (if you went, which I did not) or imaginging your years to come if you're not there yet.

Prom Impossible is a fun, entertaining book that follows a girl called Cassidy. She dreams of having the perfect prom with her crush who is called Michael. This book is fascinating as we get to follow her around on a thrilling roller coaster ride and we get to watch her try to make her dream into a reality.

In the beginning of the story, Cassidy, is caught setting up a few smoke blasters and is then sentenced to an Adventure Program at school for summer. In this story, we are introduced to three

Prom Impossible is a comical story that follows a girl called Cassidy who dreams of the perfect prom with the perfect guy. The book is mostly set over Cassidy's senior year, and gets us engrossed as we follow her around and watch her try hard to make her dream come true.

Cassidy is probably the most delusional character I've ever read. I mean, who thinks about soul mates at 17? She's a really random person who rambles a lot and makes up some dumb and weird excuses, but I think her vitali

Cassidy wants the perfect senior year. And the perfect prom date, which would be Michael, the boy that she thinks is her soul mate, but Michael hasn't been paying attention to her and she has to come up with a plan, and that is where Jasper comes in. Jasper is one of the most popular boys in school and in exchange for Cassidy writing his English papers he agrees to date he
