About the Book
Azure, who is a lesbian, and Luke, who is bisexual, help plan an inclusive senior prom. While Luke is writing and producing a musical about his life, both are working through the crush they have on their friend Radhika, and all three are dealing with problems at home.
From the Publisher
When Azure''s principal gives her the chance to turn the school''s traditional (and boring) senior prom into an event that will appeal to everyone, not just the jocks and cheerleaders, she jumps at the opportunity. Soon Azure manages to convince her best friends, Luke and Radhika, to join the prom committee as well.
Facing heavy opposition and admittedly clueless about prom logistics, the three friends are nonetheless determined to succeed -- if Luke''s and Azure''s secret crushes on Radhika don''t push the committee members, and their friendships, to the breaking point first.
Told in two voices and filled with comical missed connections, It''s Our Prom (So Deal With It) explores the ups and downs of planning an alternative prom -- while dealing with an unrequited crush on your best friend -- and shines with National Book Award finalist Julie Anne Peters''s unmistakable wit and insight.
