    1. What the fuck did I just read This was easily the worst anthology I ve ever read There s no credited editor, which I can only take to mean that none of these stories were edited beyond the authors reading them over Because this was the most consistently awful anthology I ve ever read There were a few good ones, but not many Here s the quite painful story by story review of this horrendous anthology.Note There were so many stories with detailed reviews that I couldn t fit them all in the review d [...]

    2. Really underwhelmed I gotta stop reading short stories anthologies I really don t like them You Are a Prom Queen, Dance Dance Dance Elizabeth Craft 1 5 starsThe girl in this story hated EVERYTHING and was an absolutely rude and bitchy nightmare Really hated her and since she was the entire plot, really not into it.All She Wants Cecily Von Ziegesar 0 5 stars yeah, it was THAT bad First of all, there was no prom in this The girl was a rude brat and yeah not even relevant to this anthology Remind m [...]

    3. First of all I though this would be likeLet It Snowwith all the stories eventually coming together That wasn t the case but strangely I liked it even Not only was it fun to read so many different takes on prom it was nice to find new authors I liked All the stories were different, both character and structure wise It was strange to read so many different stories one after another but still refreshing It was an easy and fast read I wish I could read about some of the characters in a longer story [...]

    4. Unfortunately, this is a DNF I thought I was going to absolutely love this collection of stories because they re set on prom night which is one of my favourite events to read about, but they just seem dry They don t possess much charisma or excitement and they re very lacking in substance Of course, you can t expect massive character development or plot development during stories as short as these, but I think it s just far, far too lacking for me to even try and enjoy There s just something mis [...]

    5.

    6. You may be surprised by this but I never went to Prom I know, right I mean, seriously WTF And, like everyone said I regret it I mean, if I had gone to Prom then maybe Derek Ducharme would have noticed me in my Micro short version extremely popular Sweet Dreams dress A gorgeous peau de sois satin gown featuring a breathtaking skirt with gather detailing A boned bustier, which fits like a glove, forms a charming neckline and proposed to me right away We would have married after college, he d be a [...]

    7. Reviewed by Jocelyn Pearce for TeensReadToo21 PROMS tells the stories of, well, twenty one proms Twenty one fantastic authors contributed to this collection, and each and every one of the stories is fabulous and enjoyable A few, however, really stick out in my mind after finishing this book.Holly Black s IN VODKA VERITAS is a creepy story about an evil Latin club MOM CALLED, SHE SAID YOU HAVE TO GO TO PROM is Adrienne Maria Vrettos contribution to the book It s a great story that manages, in jus [...]

    8. O que me levou a comprar este livro foram alguns autores David Levithan e John Green e o tema dos contos Apesar de n o ter vivido uma experi ncia do g nero, algo que com o tempo passei a me interessar mesmo caso para dizer tarde demais N o gostei do livro, os contos s o sem gra a, o drama gira em volta de quem vai ser o meu par e isso acabou por deixar cada conto pior que outro claro que h uns que gostei Quando lei este g nero de livros, sinto falta de ser aquele mi do que ia para a escola brinc [...]

    9. This boom was okay I would kinda recommend it if you are just looking for an easy fun read The story s were not that funny and they are short and rushed.

    10. Actual classification 3.75 5 starsReview This is a curious book, filled with short stories from 21 different authors, but there s already something negative to say about this there s no connection between them I thought I d love this book, and somehow I kept wishing for it to be like Let it Snow, where the stories tangled But aside from that Why I got this book Well I read that John Green wrote a short story here, and as a loyal fan that has nearly every book that John Green wrote, I had to had [...]

    11. This was such an adorable read I personally, hated my HS prom We were all assigned dates and we weren t allowed to do freestyle dancing Our prom was of a dinner event program So this book was a perfect way for me to absorb the various promenade experiences.I loved almost all of the stories in this anthology, but I have 5 specific tales that are really memorable.1 Better Be Good to MeThink, the 80s Springfield song Jesse s Girl But this one actually has a happy ending.2 Three FatesOmg this was A [...]

    12. First of all, what the fuck What the fuck did I just read What was this Honestly, what What the hell Who published it Why.Okay, let me get one thing straight I will read anything with John Green s name on it You slap his name on Fifty Shades of Grey and I ll read the fuck out of that book I m not saying I love all of his literary work cough AnAbundanceOfKatherines cough but I do love his writing style and fuck, why am I defending myself, I just love him, okay So when I found out his name was sla [...]

    13. Let s go over this book, shall we Okay, this was the weirdest anthology ever I don t even think there was an editor If someone is going to put together an anthology there is to it then having multiple people write their version and stick it together You have to edit it Multiple typosring vocabulary I mean, come on An entire story was based on a kid who had a relationship with a gorilla that was the same gender Yes, you read that right A GORILLA He took it to prom and everything WTF I do admit t [...]

    14. So I thought this book would have the same vibe as Geektastic it didn t, there were very few of the stories that were actually enjoyable, most were just boring if not kinda pathetic

    15. My favorite, by a large margin, was Jacqueline Woodston s short story, Geechee Girls Dancin , 1955.I tried to find discussion, reviews debates about it, thinking This is so great, I m excited to have discussions exchange thoughts about this with other people but all I manage to find was short comment by ignorant peopl this would be either saying they weren t able to understand it or going further than that claiming it was illegible, badly written or not interesting My first reflex was English is [...]

    16. Get ready for a long review of why you shouldn t waste your time on this book from your typical pessimistic reviewer.I m sorry but I am completely disappointed with this book Let s start off with giving each story yes, there are 21 stories so prepare yourselves a brief review and a rating, then an overall review.And, duh, spoilers.1 You are a Prom Queen, Dance Dance Dance by Elizabeth Craft 2 STARS Friendly reminder 2 stars is a high rating because trust me, some of the other stories make me cri [...]

    17. The basic premise behind 21 Proms being an anthology is that each person, at every prom, has a story, and this book tells a cross section of those As different as the people and their individual situations are, so are the entries herein Whether it s the search for the perfect dress, just the right date, or the wish for the 1980s style perfect prom, 21 Proms covers it all oftentimes accurately, occasionally stereotypically, and a couple of times strangely Take, for example Holly Black s In Vodka [...]

    18. You Are a Prom Queen, Dance Dance Dance by Elizabeth Craft Ayla hates the prom The ending was okay, but I hated reading about the girl who hates everything All She Wants by Cecily von Ziegesar Brooke, home with the chicken pox, wants to make her own prom Kinda cute In Vodka Veritas by Holly Black The Latin Club wreaks havoc on the prom Good and creepy.Your Big Nightby Sarah Mlynowski Drew wants to get back with or at her ex for prom But her friends want a Winnebago party It was okay.Off Like a P [...]

    19. If you re looking for a light hearted collection of short stories based around the prom season look no further than 21 Proms This novel features a variety of genres for those with differing tastes, from mysteries, to fantasy, to realistic contemporary fiction The character personalities and backgrounds are extensive, which provides young adults with multiple opportunities to connect with the protagonists Stories are told through the eyes of males and females, heterosexual and homosexual couples, [...]

    20. This wasn t entirely what I expected in a good way There were plenty of stories of romance, first kisses, and questions of am I ready for sex But, there were also tales of Latin clubs turning proms into sex orgies via magic incantations, and other oddities There was quite a lot of depth to a number of the stories, and the emotion was often palpable The format of some of the stories were slightly weird, with at least two being divided into paragraphs or sections with numbers that didn t seem to m [...]

    21. ♫✯Em loves Hollenstein✯♫❤the summertime and butterflies all belong to your creation❤ says:

      Ned Cecily John David SO MANY AMAZING AUTHORS

    22. Welp I didn t expect much, anyway 6 21, friends Of all the 21 prom stories I can only positively claim to have liked around six of them.Each story in a sentence You Are a Prom Queen, Dance Dance Dance With a whiny heroine I m at a loss how she pulled off a prom night as nicely as she had All She Wants I should ve known from the title, but goddamn is this girl desperate In Vodka Veritas I might have liked this story better if I read it stoned which I don t think I ll dare to try Your Big Night Th [...]

    23. I m not gonna write a huge review for this, but I will say that some of these stories really knocked it out of the park Ned Vizzini, David Levithan, John Green, and Billy Merrell were my favorites while somedidn t Sorry, Libba Bray This collection of stories was centered around the idea of prom 21 authors writing about one topic doesn t really sound like it allows for much variety, but in this case it totally did Not only were there stories in here, there were also plays, poems, and almost autob [...]

    24. A very cute and fluffy read Full of fluffy prom novellas Some were really good and others were okay But mostly it was just fun and sweet

    25. I was originally going to review each story individually, but I realised that I don t really have anything to say about most of them Some I loved, some I really didn t like, but that just about constitutes most of my thoughts about this collection I would recommend this as an introduction to 21 amazing YA authors, or maybe as something to read in between full length novels.

    26. I enjoyed this book so much Definite 5 stars I loved all the authors mini stories and read this at least 5 times I really liked how John Green made a cameo as well Would definitely recommend to year 9 10 and up.
