Lana's Ex Prom Date
By Amy Sparling
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: 13 December, 2016
Lana Clarke just got asked out by one of the hottest guys in school. Toby Fitzgerald is undeniably gorgeous, but his charismatic personality makes Lana the envy of every girl at Fawkes High. Senior prom is right around the corner, and although Lana had planned on a stag outing with her friends, Ashlyn and Bennet, Toby asks her to be his date in the most romantic way ever. Her friends are bummed, but support her anyway. After all, Toby Fitzgerald is the boyfriend everyone wants.
Lana’s life is now perfect—until Toby breaks up with her three days before prom.
But he’s a nice guy, and he still wants to take her to prom as a friend. After all, they’d already rented a limo and picked out Lana’s dress together. Her friends think she shouldn’t ditch them for a guy who ditched her, but when she discovers Toby’s secret, she’ll have to choose between lying to her friends, or lying to the whole school.

Exhausted, I sink to the floor and stare at the crumpled dresses in the no pile. A cold shiver hits me, making me shudder. I think about Toby. About the stupid kiss. That first date we went on, when we had such a great time. I think about Aunt Shawna’s words of wisdom about finding a man you can be yourself around. I wasn’t myself around Toby. I couldn’t be; I was too scared to let him see the real me because there’s no way he’d like the real me.
So, I showed him a fake me. One who is nice and happy and doesn’t complain about things. I was sweet, and dare I say charming. I thought I did everything right.
So why did he dump me?
Why did he even like me in the first place?
That promposal was so sweet and so cute and I’ve never been treated like that in my life. No guy has ever gone out of their way to surprise me with something special.
On my sixteenth birthday, Bennet surprised me with sixteen dozen pink roses, my favorite. Then he took me and Ashlyn out to Shoguns, my favorite hibachi restaurant that we never get to go to because it’s so expensive. Later, Ashlyn told me he’d worked his ass off mowing lawns for the neighbors for six months to afford my birthday present. That’s probably the nicest thing anyone’s ever done for me, but Bennet is my friend. It was fun having Toby pay attention to me. He was a guy who liked me because he wanted to, not because he was my lifelong pal.
And now he’s back to just being the guy in my homeroom class. This little voice nags at me in my subconscious. It’s asking me why the hell I’d consider going to prom with a guy who dumped me.
I guess the smart thing to do for my heart would be to tell Toby to piss off. But I don’t really care about my feelings right now. I want to go to prom with Toby because being around him makes me feel special. Cool. Popular in a way I’ve never been before.
So what if my heart is sad that he dumped me? I’ll find a way to get over it.
