It’s that time of year. THE PROM. (Insert appropriate theme music here.) So many things to worry about. So many things to do! Browsing through catalogs, dreaming of the perfect dress, picking just the right color. Tuxedo rentals. (Why don’t they rent dresses?) Trying to get the nerve to ask that special person to go to the prom with you. Waiting for that special person to ask you. Then there’s the Prom Committee. The posters everywhere. The theme of the prom. The high-priced tickets. And the details of the event: Who’s driving? Limo or carpool or drive yourselves? Negotiating curfews with the parents. Where to eat afterwards? Budgeting your money. Hair appointments. Nail appointments. The corsage. And of course, DANCING!!!!
Seems overwhelming, doesn’t it? Well, here’s a list of books to help you with the whole experience. Pick one up today! And we hope that your prom experience is memorable and safe!
