Sited source. From the cover of the book.
The book that I’m reviewing is called “Prom”by Laurie Halse Anderson.THe book was a great book, it is just like what teenagers do for fun today.There is a little too much sadness near the end for me. But at the very end the book gets happy again.The book had a great theme,good detailed setting,and a good vocabulary.
The main point to the book “Prom” is a mischievous math teacher stole all the money from prom committee. The prom committee crystal,because prom was canceled at first.But Ashley Hannigan claims she hates prom ,but she volunteers to help,out on prom committee.Without Ashley prom would not have happened.The theme to the book was don’t trust one person too much.
The authors use of vocabulary was great.the author used great language skills ,the vocabulary was good,a favorite sentence of mine from the book used by Ashley Hannigan.”I hate prom,but I like it listening to all the buzz about prom kills me.The authors wordplay worked out great for her.I really enjoyed the vocabulary and how the author made the words make sense in there own ways.
Prom had many different settings.Most of all the actions done in the book took place at the school,Ashley’s home,and at the mall.The time period in the book was just like it happened yesterday.The author did a fantastic job with describing all the places in detail.Ashley says in the book that at her school they have security guards ,metal detectors,and plenty of rules.
In the book ” Prom” a lot happened to make the ending rather sad ,but at the very end everything was straightened out.I liked the book at first it was great but there was a lot of crying over the prom .The rest of the book it’s theme setting ,and vocabulary were all great.I would recommend this book to someone who likes to read about present day teenage problems.
