Lost in My Prom Fairytale by Cathy Garcia
Gia has been dreaming about her prom since she was a little girl, watching characters in her favorite TV shows prepare for their big day. When her older cousins and her sister had their own proms, Gia eagerly observed as they set off with their dates. Each looked so beautiful in her own unique prom dress!
As Gia’s own prom approaches, she imagines it will be like a dance straight out of a fairy tale. She envisions herself as the belle of the ball, sharing extra-special moments with her circle of friends. Not one to sit back and just let things happen, Gia takes tenacious charge of her own prom plans, making sure everything is lined up and in place for her big night.
She’s picked a gorgeous prom dress inspired by her favorite romantic film. She’s negotiated with her father to stay out past curfew. And she’s found a platonic date to help her dance the night away. Gia’s got everything under control—but she’ll come to realize that the world doesn’t always work that way.
When circumstances conspire to potentially ruin Gia’s night, she’ll learn an important lesson about the dangers of planning for—and expecting—perfection.
