Synopsis

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.

Then they lose their deposit. Twice. And book a band full of octogenarians. And don’t even get her started on the act of God that takes down their venue…

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

Review

The prom will not be held this year, Riley discovers it through rumors reported to her by Owen and Desmond. The latter is pushing her a little to take charge of things. So here she is, embarked on the Morp operation (prom backwards). But here it is, fate is against her and all kinds of adventures will happen to her.

I love Riley, she’s an overactive girl who is involved in many clubs but never as president and so she will learn to make decisions. She’s been a loner since her ex-best friend Catherine let her down. She plays an online video game with Owen, Catherine’s boyfriend but she is also his friend since kindergarten.

Besides, let’s talk about Owen, he’s adorable, tender and never says one word higher than the other. He pays attention to what others think so as not to hurt them. He’s really a nice guy, I like him a lot and so does Riley.

Prom-Wrecked is told from two perspectives, Riley’s and Catherine’s. We can see the difference between the two girls even if she is similar in some respects.

Catherine is a little forced by Owen to join the prom committee, she has to look for sponsors but at the same time her family life is getting more complicated and she also has to take into account her own desires.

As I said earlier, a lot of things are happening and frankly I had a great time with all these characters. I laughed, shed a little tear and was happy too. For once there is no betrayal in a story.

Quick Word: If you want to have a good time, don’t hesitate to read Prom-Wrecked.

Chronique

Le bal de promo n’aura pas lieu cette année, Riley le découvre par les rumeurs qui lui sont rapportés par Owen et Desmond. Ce dernier la pousse d’ailleurs un peu à prendre en main les choses. La voilà donc embarquée dans l’opération Morp (prom à l’envers). Seulement voilà, le destin est contre elle et lui arrivera toutes sortes de péripéties.

J’adore Riley, c’est une hyperactive qui est impliquée dans beaucoup de club mais jamais comme présidente et du coup elle va apprendre à prendre des décisions. C’est une solitaire depuis que son ex-meilleure amie Catherine l’a laissé tomber. Elle joue à un jeu vidéo en ligne avec Owen, le petit ami de Catherine mais aussi son ami depuis la maternelle.

D’ailleurs, parlons d’Owen, il est adorable, tendre et ne dit jamais un mot plus haut que l’autre. Il fait attention à ce que pense les autres pour ne pas les blesser. C’est réellement un gentil garçon, je l’apprécie beaucoup et Riley aussi.

Prom-Wrecked est raconté de deux point de vue, celui de Riley et celui de Catherine. On voit bien la différence entre les deux filles même si elle se ressemble quand même sur certains points.

Catherine est un peu contrainte par Owen de s’inscrire au comité pour le bal, elle doit rechercher des sponsors mais en parallèle sa vie de famille se complique et elle doit aussi  prendre en compte ses envies à elle.

Comme je le disais plus haut, tout un tas d’évènements se produisent et franchement j’ai passé un excellent moment en compagnie de tous ces personnages. J’ai ri, j’ai versé une petite larme et j’ai aussi été heureuse. Pour une fois qu’il n’y a pas de traitrise dans une histoire.

En bref : Si vous voulez passer un agréable moment, n’hésitez pas et lisez Prom-Wrecked.
