Their prom night ended in a jail cell with forty of their closest friends. But that’s hardly the worst thing that happened to them…

When the principal announces prom is canceled this year, senior Riley Hart is determined to save it. Armed with little more than her own enthusiasm, she ends up working closely with Owen Locklear, who is more than completely off-limits. Because he’s the boyfriend of her ex-BFF, Catherine Reed. Still, Owen knows Riley better than almost anyone, and his charming ideas for turning the prom upside-down and backward win Riley over.

Catherine is willing to join Owen and Riley on the prom committee, but only because her legacy as prom queen is at stake. She’s already suffocating under the weight of her parents’ expectations for after senior year, and compared to that, ensuring prom happens should be easy. At least until everything starts to go wrong.

First they lose their deposit. Then they book a band full of octogenarians. And lose their venue... Twice.

Riley will have an unforgettable teenage experience, damn it, if it’s the last thing she does…


"A fun story about a series of unfortunate prom disasters, mismatched couples, and an upside-down happy ending." - Lisa Brown Roberts, author of Spies, Lies, and Other Allies: A Love Story

"Awesome plot, great characters, and a book boyfriend or two who I wish were real.  Prom has never been so outrageously fun and laugh-out-loud hilarious!" - Cookie O'Gorman, author of Adorkable and The Good Girl's Guide to Being Bad

"PROM-WRECKED by T.H. Hernandez and Jennifer DiGiovanni is a comical and heart-warming Senior year romp told by two equally relatable young ladies, written by two equally talented authors. Fans of Can't Hardly Wait will adore this book, and you'll read with fingers crossed from start to finish that all is set straight, on the romance and friendship fronts, before the last dance. ~Karole Cozzo, author of HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU OUT LOUD and THE GAME CAN'T LOVE YOU BACK

“I laughed so much reading this book it was honestly amazing. It was hilarious without being ridiculous and I think that’s what I loved the most about it.” -Emma K., Goodreads

“This book’s greatest strength, as with any good rom-com, is its humor. Riley and co.’s bumbling adventures in prom-planning were often times uproarious – everything that can conceivably go wrong does in absolutely hilarious fashion. I was in stitches by the end.” -Cover to Cover Book Reviews 

“When I thought things couldn't become worse the story went there and did so in a hilarious way. I actually laughed out loud…when reading this book.” -Merel V., Goodreads

“The author is able to create a fun, humors set of characters and story that will have readers finishing the story with a smile on their face.” -Heidi W., Goodreads

Prom-Wrecked is a great read. It prom season and I'm seeing people post about their kids going to prom all over Facebook so I was like ok I'm going to read a book that has a prom in it.

I'll be honest, I mostly requested this book off of NetGalley out of boredom. I didn’t know if I’d like it much but thought it sounded mildly amusing, so when I found myself genuinely enjoying it, I was pleasantly surprised.

Loved it! At the heart of this book are two ex-best friends, Riley and Catherine, each who discovers her own tenacious spirit. The romance was swoony, and the boys, gah! Jordon and Owen have my heart. Prepare to fall in love with two of the best book boyfriends I’ve read in a while.

Awesome plot, gre ...more

It's a fun read, I enjoyed the story and especially loved how it's told. Riley is trying to save the prom because it isn't something that can be canceled. Every school has it and theirs will too. If no one steps in then they must save it themselves and that is how a bunch of teenagers ended up in a ...more

Sometimes it takes a moment to make you realize that you are bigger than how you perceived yourself. For Riley, that moment comes when her principal cancels prom. She takes control in a “not on my watch” kind of way, which goes completely against how she typically would respond. As Riley herself obs ...more
