1 girl + 1 prom + 3 guys = Prom Impossible!

Cassidy decides her senior year, including prom, will be about Michael Greenwood, the boy destined to be her soul mate. One problem. He hasn’t figured that out yet. 

But certain events meant as innocent pranks—that weren’t completely her fault—introduce her to Zeke, the reformed bad boy. And cutting deals in the boys’ bathroom with Jasper, the hottest guy in school, lands her in a complicated web of half-truths that spirals out of control. 

At the end of the year, she’s dateless the day before the big night but risks a lot more than her pride if she can’t find a way to fix her mistakes. 

PROM IMPOSSIBLE is a modern-day Shakespearean romantic comedy in the world of teens, true love, and life.

Prom Impossible was not what I had expected at all.  I really thought that it was going to involve more of -well - prom.  Instead it concentrates on all the bad decisions Cassidy makes over the course of her senior year, and the tail end of her junior year just to get things going.  Now, don't get me wrong, her antics were very funny, if very unbelievable.  At times it was quite difficult to wrap my head around one person screwing things up so badly.  Even if she had done half of it, I think she would still have been a great character.  It was just way too much for me.

The boys in her life are amazing characters.  Even the one you are supposed to hate, you love to do it.  The other two are sweet and perfect in their own way, but Cassidy will need to figure out which one she really wants at the end of it all.

This was a cute story, just a bit much for taste at times.
