Deacon Locke Went to Prom by Brian Katcher

Into the Wild

Read Deacon Locke Went to Prom Online Free - 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 she 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.

The first part of this book totally gets 5 stars!! It was hilarious and adorable, but I just wasn't into the second half. Deacon Locke is socially awkward, almost 7 feet tall, and lives with his grandma because his dad fled the country to avoid loan sharks. Deacon considers his grandma one of his...

(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 wa...

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 more than that. I really want to t...

You know, even when you consider an author your friend, and you both write for the same website, you just don't read a book and expect to see your name--and the names of other FYA ladies--used for exuberant internet commenters. :D This is a cute story about an awkward high schooler who takes his g...

*ARC Kindly provided by Katherine Tegen Books thru Edelweiss for review* Deacon Locke is probably one of the awkward-est but cutest characters I’ve ever encountered and his story is as well one of the cutest & simplest story I’ve read this year! Deacon Locke Went To Prom is a story about a shy...

Quintessential Katcher: Quippy protagonist Quirky characters and conflicts Quality ideas Quick, optimistic read Quibbling reviewers Deacon, the main character, is remarkably blasé about all sorts of social pitfalls, yet ridiculously insecure about other interactions. This level-headed attitude an...

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...

Such a fun read. Katcher continues to bring humor and life together in a way to keep a reader wanting to turn pages. I loved the comments at the end of chapter, putting into print what my mind was saying. That's like having a friend finish your sentence and then laugh because of the special conne...

Deacon Locke does go to prom in this book, but he does so much more. He comes of age, falls in love, learns to reach farther than he thought he could, and will touch your heart. At times funny, touching, and profound, Deacon Locke is one of the most appealing 18 year olds I've met in a long long...

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...
