A book I’m no convinced I bought only because I’m kind of obsessed with the paragraph of a title and the dream of a cover. Who doesn’t want a speculative prom story with the sketchings of the universe on the front?? If you raised your hand, leave.
- The Prom Goer’s Interstellar Excursion by Chris McCoy
Gah, how can you argue with that cover and title, y’all???
It says it’s Superbad means Spaceballs, and I’ve only seen Superbad, but even so, that’s a tall expectation to meet because Superbad is amazeballs.
Just a few days before prom, Bennett pulls off something he never imagined possible: his dream girl, Sophie, agrees to be his date. Moments afterward, however, he watches Sophie get abducted by aliens in the middle of the New Mexico desert.
Faced with a dateless prom (and likely kidnapping charges), Bennett does the only thing he can think of: he catches a ride into outer space with a band of extraterrestrial musicians to bring her back.
Can he navigate alien concert venues, an extraterrestrial reality show, and the band’s outlandish egos to rescue his date in time for the big dance?
