Ava’s plan for surviving senior year at her new school is simple: fly under the radar until graduation. No boys. No attachments. No drama. But all that goes out the window when she gets drafted into the Prom Bowl—a long-standing tradition where senior girls compete in challenges and are auctioned off as prom dates to the highest bidder.
Ava joins forces with star quarterback Mark Palmer to try and get herself out of the competition, but their best laid schemes lead to self-sabotage more than anything else. And to make matters worse, they both begin to realize that the Prom Bowl isn’t all fun and games. When one event spirals dangerously out of control, Ava and Mark must decide whether shutting down the Prom Bowl once and for all is worth the price of sacrificing their futures.
About the Author
Praise For Say No to the Bro…
"Helgeson deftly explores the complexities of popularity and the pressures placed on girls to perform for and please boys. Alternating first-person narratives give candid insights into the ways both teens try to do the right thing (and sometimes fall short) as they push back against systems they aren’t comfortable with."

"Funny, smart, and exciting--a must read!"
