A collection of stories about teenagers and proms, from authors including Holly Black, Aimee Friedman, Rachel Cohn, and Leslie Margolis.

Sometimes the night of your dreams can be a total nightmare.

The prom. It's supposed to be one of the best nights of your life. Or, at least, you're supposed to have a good time. But what if you'd rather be going with your best friend's date than your own? What if a sinister underground society of students has spiked the punch? What if your date turns out to be more of a frog than a prince? Or what if he's (literally) an ape?

There are ways you can fight it. You can protest the silliness of the regular prom by hosting a backwards prom - also known as a morp. You can throw a prom for fat girls. You can stay at home to watch old teen movies and get your cute neighbor and his cuter brother to join you. You can dance to your own music.

Here, 21 of the funniest, most imaginative writers today create their own kind of prom stories. Some are triumphs. Some are disasters. But each one is a night you'll never forget.


Baker

Different style from your average book, but most of the stories are really funny and good! Maybe a little too big of a collaboration though...

I can't comment on quality of writing, etc, because I didn't like it - also read it some time ago
