I assumed I wasn't going to like the main guy based on what little we know of him at the beginning. However, by the end, you really do feel for this rich, unfortunate kid. And the girl isn't exactly as she appears at first either. Once again, this author's creativity impressed me in just a few short pages.

This is a cautionary tale about what happens when we care too much what other people think. In this case, William Carlson represents the teenage boy whose heart has been broken right before prom by his now ex-girlfriend. In order to make her jealous and to show his friends he's not a loser, he hires a stripper to be his date. To carry out his plan, he spares no expense and has to tolerate a few wrenches thrown at him along the way. Although the circumstances and dialogue are often comical, there ...more

I rather liked this tale and wanted to keep reading. I didn't love the protagonist, but I seem to have a dislike for most of the male characters Demmer portrays. They all seem like jerks and I often find taking pleasure in their discomfort. This tale was rather compelling and mysterious. I wanted to know more. My only sadness is the abruptness of the ending. I felt like the whole character development of the female companion could have just kept going. Who is she? What is this syndrome? What is ...more

Prom Screams, another entry in Demmer's Dark Celebrations oeuvre, dives into the price and pitfalls inherent in social identity and status. The story is reminiscent of those high school years and the struggle to reconcile our inner and outer selves. Unfortunately for William Carlson, his chosen date turns out to be far more than a social prop, who, like him, is struggling to figure out her own inner instabilities. Will William realize the fire he is playing with before its too late?

Calvin Demmer takes us on a wild teenage ride with Prom Screams. From the beginning, Demmer takes us on a dark, literary journey, reminding us of a time when all we wanted to do was impress our friends and be accepted, only for William it all takes an unexpected turn for the worst. Prom Screams is a must read.
