Deacon Locke Went to Prom by Brian Katcher

I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.
Deacon Locke Went to Prom
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Promposals are taking over Deacon Locke’s high school and there is no place left to hide. But even with graduation looming, shy and unusually tall Deacon doesn’t think he can get up the nerve to ask anyone to the dance. Especially given all the theatrics.

It isn’t until Deacon confides in his witty and outgoing best friend Jean that he realizes should could be a great person to take. Only problem is Jean isn’t your typical prom date. She’s older. A lot older. And she’s Deacon’s grandmother.

But when Deacon meets Soraya—a girl unlike any other he’s ever met—he fears he has totally squandered his chances of having a prom he’ll never forget. Deacon couldn’t be more wrong. About everything.

My rating: 3.12 of 5 stars


Deacon Locke Went to Prom “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 she missed her own senior prom, and becoming semi-famous because of it when someone posted a video online. We also got a bit of romance with a girl called Soraya who was Deacon and his grandmother’s dance instructor, but I found the pace of the book quite slow, and there wasn’t really enough going on to keep me interested.

The ending to this was okay, although I felt quite sorry for Deacon’s Grandmother.



6.25 out of 10
