Blog Tour for Prom-wrecked by Jennifer DiGiovanni and T.H. Hernandez


Publication Date: May 6, 2019

Publisher: Entangled Teen

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…

I glance down at my empty hand and realize what’s missing. “Oh, no.” I let everything in my arms fall to the floor and drop to my knees, combing through files and bags, frantically tossing papers and shaking out notebooks. Owen’s baseball cleats edge into the corner of my vision as he stands there, hands on his hips, watching.
“Everything okay?”
“The deposit. It’s gone! How did I lose it? I only had it for ten minutes.” My hands start to shake. This can’t be happening. I glance up and down the hallway, searching for a manila envelope filled with cash.
Owen crouches beside me. “Take a breath and chill for a second. If you can’t find the check, we’ll go ask Slater to replace it.”
“It was cash. Bake sale cash. Not a check.” Tears sting my eyes. “I can’t march in Slater’s office and announce the money’s gone.” “He won’t help us, anyway. He said prom is our responsibility this year, remember?”
Owen starts rubbing circles on my back, comforting me. Through a cloud of misery, I register the heat of his touch.
“I’m sure we’ll find it,” Owen says. “How much was the deposit? Fifty bucks? Seventy-five?”
An incredulous laugh hiccups out of me. “Try five hundred.”
Owen unsuccessfully tries to hide his shock.        “Can you call Mrs. Cleary and ask if she’ll wait another day for the deposit?”
“And lose our only affordable venue to another school?”
Owen must hear the panic in my voice, because the pressure of his touch increases. “I’ll help you retrace your steps back to Slater’s office.”
Before I answer, the squeaky soles of a herd of cheer sneakers approaches. When I look up, I see Catherine with Jessa Chang, Hannah Smith, and Natalie Ruiz, wearing matching pom squad uniforms. Owen’s eyes flick from Catherine to me. His hand drops away from my back like he realized he was touching a flaming tower of bricks.
“Owen?” Catherine asks. “What’s going on?”
I shoot him a pleading look.
“Uh, Riley just lost her Morp envelope, I mean prom file. Temporarily misplaced. But she found it, right?”
Owen is not a good liar.

Review by Gia:
Prom-Wrecked is a great read.  It prom season and I'm seeing people post about their kids going to prom all over Facebook so I was like ok I'm going to read a book that has a prom in it.    This one had me hooked from beginning to end.  The first chapter had me hooked.  It starts with 11pm on prom night and all the kids are in a jail cell.  I had to know what happened for them all to end up there and we get that because Chapter two starts with two months before the prom.     I had expected to have the book told in the dual POVs of Riley and Owen but it's told from the POVs of Riley and Catherine and I loved it.   Two months before the prom the head prom planner quits and the principal wants to cancel the prom.  Riley steps up to save the prom.  Catherine focus to be prom queen but there is much more to her then just that.  In planning the prom, this group encounters disaster after disaster.  I was even wondering if the prom was doomed not to happen.   Through all this we see some friendships and relationship change and others form.  It's really a great sweet YA book.
5 Amazeballs Stars!
