My newest SparkLife blog post is all about homecoming. If you're looking for a book about the big game, the big dance, the race for Homecoming King and Queen, or people traveling back in time to change what happened when they were in high school, thereby altering the course of history for themselves and their classmates, you should click here and read that post.

Books discussed in the piece:
The Boys are Back in Town by Christopher Golden (horror novel)
Revenge of the Homecoming Queen by Stephanie Hale (upper high school)
The Alice McKinley series by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (middle school and high school)

Of course, there are a lot of books which include homecoming games and/or dances, not to mention other school dances. Here are a few more recommendations:

Shug by Jenny Han (middle school)
Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree by Lauren Tarshis (middle school)
The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher (high school)
Pop Princess by Rachel Cohn (high school)
True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet by Lola Douglas (high school)
The Pretty One by Cheryl Klam (high school)
PrettyTOUGH: Playing with the Boys by Liz Tigelaar (high school)
Tattoo by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (high school - fantasy)

I have a separate booklist for Prom.
