Full disclosure: I was a beta reader for early drafts of this book. I liked it enough to read the final version strictly for enjoyment, once it was released.

Deacon is a sweet, if sometimes clueless, high school senior. He lived an unsettled life with a father who is out of the picture by the time the story begins. Only in the last couple of years has Deacon found any kind of stability, living with his grandmother, Jean, in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

As senior prom approaches, Deacon decides he'd like to grasp this one last chance to do a normal teen activity, but he procrastinates too long to get a date. The answer is obvious -- Jean missed her own prom due to his grandfather's military service in Vietnam. Yes, he takes his grandma to prom. And she's a hit. Video clips of the two of them dancing go viral. Fame and complications ensue.

Serious issues are addressed in this story, but there is a lot of humor, as well.
