Prom night is said to be a magical night in the life of a high school student. For some it is a night of dreams that come true, while others would rather forget the night exists. For Bryce and Maycee it was the night that would change their lives forever.
Maycee had never wanted to go to prom because of the night her older sister Rylynn attended her own prom. It was a night they’d all like to forget. Maycee was only seven that year, but the memory was a strong one.
On Rylynn’s prom night, there was a terrible accident that changed their lives forever. Now Rylynn is institutionalized, Ryker and Rylynn’s parents are at odds, and Maycee is stuck in the middle between the family feud and her hope that she will get her sister back one day. This is already too much for a teenage girl to cope with each day, add in the problem of forbidden love and it’s a story that rivals a Shakespearean play.
Prom Night. A night that’s supposedly a beautiful night to remember for lovers. But for little girl Maycee, this was a night she wanted to forget. For this was the night when her older sister Rylynn went mad and her boyfriend Ryker died. This was the night when her parents and Ryker’s blamed each other’s child misfortunes. This was the night when their families became enemies. Like the Montagues and the Capulets. Like Romeo and Juliet.
Prom Night 10 years after. Maycee didn’t want to go to the dance even though she’d had lots of invites from a couple of guys. But she soon changed her mind and attended prom night. And that’s when she met her Romeo. And she, was his Juliet.
They were destined to meet and fall in love. But just like the famous Shakespeare characters, they were bound to break up because of their families. Will they also meet the same fate as the lovestruck lovers?
Oh how I wish William Shakespeare possessed my body right now, so I could poetically declare how much I was enamored and captivated by Bryce and Maycee. Promises in Stone is marshmallowsly sweet and dandelionly moving.
A beautiful love story wherein you can’t help but feel like you’re part of their world.
A beautiful love story where two people learned to forgive, forget, wait, pursue, accept and move on.
A beautiful love story full of promises carved in stone. Amy K. McClung might as well be a descendant of Shakespeare because she was able to magnificently recreate one of the greatest love stories of all time. I couldn’t help but fall in love all over again. A highly recommended read!
