Prom books and giveaway by HMH Teen

I wore a blue Scarlet O’Hara type dress.  Hoopskirt and white elbow length gloves.  And I drove myself and my date in a tiny little yellow car.  I could barely get the door closed thanks to that stupid hoop skirt.  Looking back, it was a hideous dress. I shudder at the horror of the memory of it.  But yes, I went to prom.  I went to prom with my high school boyfriend that I was sure I was going to marry some day.  The Mr. is not that boyfriend.  No, we broke up about 6 months later.  He was 1 grade year behind me and we decided we would go all out for prom the next year, his senior year.  He ended up taking someone else.  So let this be a lesson to you, make every prom year count because each one is special and you deserve it.  But don’t go overboard with the money, it really is just one day.

To help get you ready for prom, HMH Teen is providing you the opportunity to win a prize packet of prom themed books.  Read on for detials.

Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey

February 2009 | $8.99 paperback | ISBN 9780547259406

As Jessica stands waiting for the bus a hot new guy stares her down from across the street.  She doesn’t know it yet but she is his destiny.  Albeit quite reluctantly on her part.  Lucius is a vampire, and it turns out Jessica is to. Surprise!  Armed with a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica slowly, and reluctantly, transforms from American teenager to European vampire princess.  Can you take a vampire to prom?  And can Jessica keep her vampire to herself with that pesky head cheerleader trying to get her claws in him?  Read this great vampire book to find out how that goes.  I read it a little over a year ago and liked it.  I especially liked how Jessica stands up for herself in the end and chooses to embrace her destiny.  It has everything you can want in a book: humor, hot vampires, and a girl who ultimately decides that she is going to take control of her fate.
