Don “TheDragonWilson” Jones is the finest fighter Benjamin Harrison High School has ever produced. But when he enters the ring against Lincoln High’s Sam Steadman, it’s love at first knockout.

Unfortunately, Sam has a jerky ex-boyfriend…and Don has a seriously terrifying ex-girlfriend. Like, “global crime cartel” terrifying. From prom to the after-party to graduation, Don and Sam—and an increasingly eclectic cast of supporting oddballs—will have to fight their way through a gauntlet of opponents, all in the name of love (and punching). Did we mention the punching?

"True to its title, ­Karate Prom creates a joy-filled story about two teens who want to be together so badly, they are willing to fight for it. A tale for ­lovers and fighters alike." –School Library Journal, starred review

"The story feels like a playful tribute to ’80s pop culture that’s gone off the rails." –Kirkus

"It’s a fun, rapidly paced adventure well-suited for anyone who misses old-fashioned NES beat-’em-ups." –PW

Teens will be tickled by the humorous plotlines and outrageous expressions here, as well as the oft-tested strength of Don and Sam’s blossoming relationship." –Booklist
