Books About Graduation & Prom

Well it's coming up to that time again. Graduation and Proms abound. So I want to share some books my daughter, NYIA, teen book reviewer recommends for wanna be graduating seniors, prom goers and highschool teens.

BAD GIRL DAYS by Lissa Halls Johnson
Amazon Blurb:
What do you do when you find everything you've ever believed blown apart? The last two books in the popular Brio Girls series (When Stars Fall and Bad Girl Days) tackle the toughest of questions: Why do horrible, unexplainable things happen? and Can God really be trusted?
PROM by Laurie Halse Anderson
Amazon Blurb:
Philadelphia high school who doesn’t care about the prom. It’s pretty much the only good thing that happens there, and everyone plans to make the most of it—especially Ash’s best friend, Natalia, who’s the head of the committee and has prom stars in her eyes. Then the faculty advisor is busted for taking the prom money and Ash finds herself roped into putting together a gala dance. But she has plenty of help—from her large and loving (if exasperating!) family, from Nat’s eccentric grandmother, from the principal, from her fellow classmates. And in making the prom happen, Ash learns some surprising things about making her life happen, too.

PROM AND PREJUDICE by Elizabeth Eulberg
Amazon Blurb:
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single girl of high standing at Longbourn Academy must be in want of a prom date.
After winter break, the girls at the very prestigious Longbourn Academy become obsessed with the prom. Lizzie Bennet, who attends Longbourn on a scholarship, isn't interested in designer dresses and expensive shoes, but her best friend, Jane, might be - especially now that Charles Bingley is back from a semester in London.

Until the End: The Party; The Dance; The Graduation by Christopher Pike
Amazon Blurb:
It’s the start of the school year, and the popular girls have decided to throw the best party, one their friends will never forget. But hooking up and hanging out are the farthest things from their minds when the unthinkable happens: Someone doesn't make it out of the party alive. The death is declared a suicide, but nothing quite adds up. Convinced there’s a murderer on the loose, no one knows who they can turn to or who they can trust. Nowhere is safe, not the homecoming dance, not even graduation.
The truth will terrify them, but it must be revealed. Their lives depend on it.

Enjoy NYIA (TEEN BOOK REVIEWER's) list of FAV books for High Schoolers thinking about, desiring, hoping or experiencing PROM or GRADUATION.

My daughter is graduating in May, and she loves Laurie Halse Anderson. I'll have to see if she's interested in that book. Thanks for the suggestions. :)

Linda thanks for checking them out. I didn't add pictures since I was rushing.
