It's Our Prom (So Deal With It)
When Azure's principal gives her the chance to turn their school's traditional (and boring) senior prom into an event that will appeal to everyone, not just the jocks and cheerleaders, she jumps at the opportunity. Soon, Azure manages to convince her best friends, Luke and Radhika, to join the prom committee as well. Facing heavy opposition and admittedly clueless about prom logistics, they are nonetheless determined to succeed - if Luke's and Azure's secret crushes on Radhika don't push the prom committee, and their friendships, to the breaking point first. Told in two voices and filled with comical missed connections, It's Our Prom (So Deal With It) reveals the ups and downs of planning an alternative prom -- while dealing with an unrequited crush on your best friend - with National Book Award finalist Julie Anne Peters's unmistakable resonance and wit.
