    Miranda Tate returns for her senior year at Bard Academy and she is counting on two things: Prom with her boyfriend, Heathcliff, and then graduation from the haunted boarding school where fictional characters come to life. Fate, however, has other plans. 

    When Catherine Earnshaw, Heathcliff's long-lost love, appears on campus, suddenly everything she thought she knew about Heathcliff is changed forever. Catherine seems determined to win Heathcliff back, even if that means destroying Bard Academy and banishing its ghostly teachers - for good. 

    Miranda and her friends face their most daunting challenge, yet, which will take them for the first time inside the classics that have powered their mysterious boarding school. It's up to them to save Bard Academy - and prom. Can Miranda change her destiny and Heathcliff's? Or is this one story that was written in the stars?


A Tale of Two Proms is the fourth book in the Bard Academy series. Miranda has returned to the elusive school for her senior year…and to boyfriend, Heathcliffe. As in, the Heathcliffe.

With an acceptance letter to her top choice of college’s burning a hole in her pocket, Miranda already knows this year will be full of difficult decisions without Heathcliffe adding to the mix with a bombshell of his own.

As the rest of her class gets excited for prom, Miranda’s mind is firmly on other things…like the sudden appearance of Catherine, Heathcliffe’s long-lost love. With her life in tatters, Miranda and her friends must once again fight for what they love and believe in, before everything is lost forever.

A Tale of Two Proms is sure to be a hit with many teens. Bringing classics to life is a risky endeavour, and while it sometimes pays off, other times the classical characters fall a little flat for my liking. One thing is certain – it will provoke enough curiosity to encourage new readers to pick up the books mentioned by the author and broaden their reading horizon.

Miranda and the rest of the cast of characters keep things interesting as the plot develops, but my biggest nit about this book was how a lot of it seemed so repeated. Repetitive mentions of previous books, whilst at times helpful for the reminder, at others distracting from the current book.

I wasn’t blown away by this read, but I have every faith that many others will simply adore it.
