Nolan Grant is sixteen, gay, and (definitely) still a virgin. He's never had a boyfriend, or even been kissed. It's not like Penn Valley is brimming with prospects. And when his big sister stages an elaborate “prom-posal” so Nolan can ask out his not-so-secret crush, Nolan freezes. He's saved from further embarrassment by bad boy Bern, who, for his own reasons, offers to fake-date Nolan.

Nolan thinks it's the perfect way to get Daphne off his back and spend the rest of the year drawing narwhals, tending to plants, and avoiding whatever died under his bed a few weeks ago. What he doesn't think about is Bern's ex-girlfriend, who seriously wants to kill him.

How (Not) to Ask a Boy to Prom by S.J. Goslee

  • We ❤️ a good Promposal, and the one Nolan’s sister Daphne plans is epic–even if it doesn’t work out like she planned.


  • Fake relationships to more are our fave, and combining this along with a bad boy who’s got more to him than meets the eye, and we’re in trope heaven. 😍

  • This book is funny, and we find that refreshing for this genre. 😂 You’ll be laughing out loud right along with us, you won’t be able to help yourself.

SJ Goslee lives outside Philly, PA, with her husband, two young sons, three cats, four dogs and flock of chickens.She’s addicted to fanfic, folk rock, pop punk, and indie rock.Her stories tend to focus on epic friendships, families of choice, and circumstances over blood. She likes characters that are unconventional and narrators that are very flawed, strong-voiced, and who never seem to know what they want in life until they’ve had it, lost it and then need to figure out how to get it back again. She enjoys exploring how our random choices affect the final outcome, how everything almost always comes in patterns that you never see until the end, celebrating the chaotic nature of family, finding yourself, and finding others who understand you, or at least don’t try to change you.Visit tumblr for updates, cute animal pics, shirtless dudes, Teen Wolf shenanigans and other random nonsense.
