Prom should be one of the most memorable nights of your life. But for Camilla and Joshua, some elaborate promposals are getting in the way. Will they be able to land their dream dates in time for the dance?
Promposal (n.)—an often very public proposal, in which one person asks another person to the prom, eliciting joy or mortification.
Camilla can’t help hoping her secret crush, Benjamin, might randomly surprise her out of the blue with a promposal. But when she’s asked to prom by an irritating casual acquaintance—who’s wearing a fancy tux and standing in front of a news crew—she’s forced to say yes. However, all hope is not lost, as a timely school project gives Camilla a chance to get closer to Benjamin...and it seems like the chemistry between them is crackling. Is she reading into something that isn’t there, or will she get her dream guy just in time for prom?
Joshua has been secretly in love with his best friend Ethan since middle school. Just as he decides to bite the bullet and ask Ethan if he’d go to prom with him, even if just as friends, he gets a shocking surprise: Ethan asks Joshua for help crafting the perfect promposal—for another guy. Now Joshua has to suppress his love and try to fake enthusiasm as he watches his dreams fall apart...unless he can make Ethan see that love has been right in front of his eyes the whole time.
The road to the perfect promposal isn’t easy to navigate. But one thing’s certain—prom season is going to be memorable.

Promposal from The Bookmark Blog
Oh, this one was so much fun!!!!
I gotta say, this is what made me fall in love with YA!
This is one of those, she is in love with him and he kinda likes her, but his cousin likes her so he can’t kinda books. Ya’ follow me? Oh, and then I forgot about the gay best friend, yep, he has issues of his own too, as in he is in love with HIS best friend, so when they are depressed they just veg out and eat ice cream. Man I miss being a teenager when calories didn’t count!
I loved how this book poked fun at the emerging trend to make asking someone to the Prom, the promposal, into an epic event. Camilla gets asked by a friend from one of her classes in front of a television crew, and she is way to nice to say no, even if that is exactly what she wants to say, because the guy she really wants to ask her barely notices her.
The characters were so great in this one, I can totally picture them in school, very fun and believable.
It was also so readable, I read it in one afternoon and found myself chuckling throughout the story. A great story.
