I adored this cute short story for teens called Lost in My Prom Fairytale by Cathy Garcia. Gia is the type of girl that dreams about prom, and other big events in her life. As she grows older, she has this image of what her prom is going to be like-hoping it will be like the ones that she sees on TV.
She’s got her dressed picked out, she’s ready to live it up, but then things happen to make her fairytale deflate right in front of her eyes. At only 40 or so pages, this book is just the right size to help preteens, teens, and adults remember that things may not always go their way, or the way that they dreamt it would in their mind, but it doesn’t mean that it will end badly. You have to take things in stride sometimes, and this is the perfect lesson for Gia and people everywhere.
I think that the cover of this book is just so cute, it really showcases Gia’s personality, and the writing in the book is incredible. You dive into the story, though a bit predictable for us older folks, it has a good message and a lot of heart. I really enjoyed reading this, and plan to show it to my niece as soon as possible.
Thank you to the author for sending me this book, it means a lot, and for understanding that I am very behind in my TBR so it took me a while to get this review out. I appreciate the patience, and can’t wait to read more from this author! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
