Staff Pick: Deacon Locke Went to Prom

How far would you go to be with the one you care about on Prom Night? Deacon Locke doesn’t have many friends or a girlfriend but he wants to go to his high school prom with someone he likes so he decides to invite his best friend, Jean. The problem? Jean isn’t just an older woman, she’s Deacon’s grandmother. Deacon talks her into going only to meet the girl of his dreams soon after. He figures he’s blown his chances of a prom to remember but he and Jean have a great time at the dance.  It’s what gets posted on the internet after that really shakes up Deacon’s world. Things are about to get very complicated. A book about friendship, family and taking chances. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants a realistic fiction story about friends and family.
