#BookReview: The Night When No One Had Sex by Kalena Miller

Synopsis: It's the night of senior prom, and eighteen-year-old Julia has made a pact with her friends. (Yes, that kind of pact.) They have secured a secluded cabin in the woods, one night without parental supervision, and plenty of condoms. But as soon as they leave the dance, the pact begins to unravel. Alex's grandmother is undergoing emergency surgery, and he and his date rush to the hospital. Zoe's trying to figure out how she feels about getting off the waitlist at Yale--and how to tell her girlfriend. Madison's chronic illness flares, holding her back once again from being a normal teenager. And Julia's fantasy-themed role play gets her locked in a closet. Alternating between each character's perspective and their ridiculous group chat, The Night When No One Had Sex finds a group of friends navigating the tenuous transition into adulthood and embracing the uncertainty of life after high school. 


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review:  This is what I think prom night is for most kids. Everything that can go wrong does and it turns into a hilarious rom-com of teens realizing that maybe sex on prom night just isn't in the cards for them.  No matter if you are a teen getting ready for your prom night or you're an adult that already had one. This book is a fun read that will have you laughing and crying all at the same time. Although this book was totally ridiculous it was such a fun read and learning about each couple.  I would love to see this one the big or small screen. 


"Told via multiple points of view and a hilarious group chat, this atypical prom tale is humorous and dramatic in equal parts. A fun read, perfect for anyone who is (or has ever been) a teen."―Booklist

"A witty, honest debut that shines a light on some very real issues."Kirkus Reviews
