    2. I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss Like the universe, my future is limitless And like the universe, my future is mostly uncharted and kind of scary This was a YA contemporary story about a boy who took his grandmother to prom.Deacon was an okay character, he wasn t very confident when it came to girls and I understood how nervous he got when it came to asking one to prom The storyline in this was about Deacon taking his Grandma to prom because [...]

    4. Before this book, I had never heard of Brian Katcher And honestly I feel like his book must be ridiculously underrated This book, at first, comes across as if it will be some funny story of a teen boy going to his first prom While it is that, it s also a lot than that I really want to talk about the Muslim love interest, Soraya who I loved and is a TOTAL badass, but I ve decided not to say a ton, just because of some backlash and accusations I ve received on Twitter for stating opinions before [...]


    5. I got to 35% and then I just gave up When I started this book at 2.30 am I couldn t sleep it was funny, hilarious, and I really liked it But during the day, when I read parts of it, I just couldn t understand why I had liked it Deacon is annoying, cringey, bleh and I was just so frustrated with how he acted I would much rather have a book about Elijah, he is interesting and fun Or maybe about Jean, the grandma Even she has interesting things to talk about than Deacon does.I just can t see mysel [...]

    9. Quintessential Katcher Quippy protagonist Quirky characters and conflicts Quality ideasQuick, optimistic read Quibbling reviewersDeacon, the main character, is remarkably blas about all sorts of social pitfalls, yet ridiculously insecure about other interactions This level headed attitude and anxiety prone behavior combine to make Deacon a believable guy I am also fond of the side characters Each member of the supporting cast is distinct from the others, shaping and supporting the main character [...]


    10. I absolutely love the premise of this book for many reasons but the biggest one is that everyone can relate to Prom If you are young, you either can t wait to go or you are dreading it Everyone who is post Prom age has a Prom story either why you didn t go to Prom, what your dress looked like, how hard you partied, what went wrong, etc Personally, I think about Prom at least 8 months out of every year because I am the Prom co sponsor at the school where I teach So, other than the fact that this [...]

    13. This was so cute And set in Fayetteville, Arkansas, so I loved seeing all the Arkansas stuff mentioned.I will admit that I was a little bummed when I saw the names of all the FYA girls as Internet commenters and didn t see mine but Rosemary made her appearance there at the end and I let out a tiny fist pump

    15. Full disclosure I am one of Brian s CP s and read early drafts of the first half of this story but had to wait for the finished book to read the ending, which was torture I loved the final product.Brian s ability to create lovable and quirky characters, treated with humor and compassion, is on full display in this feel good coming of age story My favorite part of this story is Deacon s relationship with his grandmother, who is also his guardian, and how both deal with the progression of her earl [...]


    16. teen fiction awkward teen makes friends, meets girl of his dreams who happens to be Muslim , and deals with unexpected fame in Fayetteville, Arkansas, among other things Charming characters and a lot of zinging humor.From Stonewall winning author of Almost Perfect about a boy falling in love with a trans girl in Missouri, though the original synopsis written by the publisher is off putting and the author advises ignoring that to the extent possible.


    17. Deacon Locke Went to Prom by Brian Katcher was somewhat different from many young adult novels Even though there are YA novels that have a male protagonist, many of the ones I read and review on a regular basis have a female main character It was also interesting to see the angst and lack of self confidence of a teen boy whom others see as good looking and capable of popularity.Deacon starts the novel with two friends, both of whom are girls his eating and studying partner Kelly and his grandmot [...]


    18. Such a cute book I loved the subtle narration in the background It was kind of like the voice in Kevin Arnold s head in the Wonder Years A sweet story about a kid who wants to become a man and then realizes he really was a man to start with.



    19. Katcher does not disappoint This story is both humorous and heartwarming I loved it There s so many good things about this book, I don t know where to begin, so all I ll say is Read it


    20. Brian Katcher is one of my critique partners and I was privileged to see parts of this book in the formative stages, when I enjoyed it very much I enjoyed it even in its final form This is a madcap romp through the life of a young man with a good heart who is nonetheless pretty much clueless about, well, everything This is his coming of age, brought about courtesy of social media bullying, reality TV, bigotry, and mental health issues And despite the heavy topics in that list, the book is fille [...]
