Summary: promposal (n.)--an often public proposal, in which one person asks another to the prom, eliciting joy or mortification.
Camilla can't help hoping her secret crush, Benjamin, might randomly surprise her out of the blue with a promposal. However, when she's asked to prom by an irritating casual acquaintance--wearing a fancy tux and standing in front of a news crew--she's forced to say yes. Yet all hope's not lost. A timely school project gives Camilla a chance to get closer to Benjamin...and it seems like the chemistry between them is crackling. But is she reading into something that isn't there?
Joshua, Camilla's bestie, has been secretly in love with his gay best friend, Ethan, since middle school. Just as he decides to bite the bullet and ask Ethan if he'll go to prom with him, even if just as friends, he gets a shocking surprise: Ethan asks Joshua for help crafting the perfect promposal--for another guy. Now Joshua has to suppress his love and try to fake enthusiasm as he watches his dreams fall apart...unless he can make Ethan see that love has been right in front of his eyes the whole time.
The road to the perfect promposal isn't easy to navigate. But one thing's certain--prom season is going to be memorable.
My Thoughts: Promposal was a really cute one! We are introduced to Joshua and Camilla. Two best friends who fall in love with other people and are there for one another through everything. Joshua is gay and Camilla is straight. Joshua falls for one of his best friends while Camilla falls for a guy in one of her classes at school.
I really liked this one. I liked seeing all the other characters plan their promposals and ask people out. I liked the different points of view between Joshua and Camilla too. I liked seeing what they were both going through. I also liked the family aspect. I liked seeing both of their families and things weren't perfect but they made it work.
I felt like there wasn't a lot of depth to this one. But that is ok. It got the point across and it was a fun light read for me.
Overall: Liked it. Of course both characters had some complications and obstacles to get through but I really liked how things played out. And I liked how prom went as well! It was a fun read. This one was probably more between a 3.5 rating and a 4. But I did enjoy it!
Cover: Cute! Like it!
