One problem: The school has banned Granny from the big dance.The school principal decided that Granny was subject to rules that forbid people older than 20 from attending the big dance because she just might slip a flask of booze into her clutch and God knows what other dangers she may pose."Safety of students and staff is the first and most important of the many tasks of a school administrator," the statement said."For the 10 years I have been high school principal, we have denied requests each year from students asking to bring older dates to prom.She's now 69 and he knows she never got to attend her own prom, so why not take her to his, right? " — and Granny is touched to tears by that grandson of hers.Before you know it, there she is on Facebook showing off a brand new flowing gown she intended to wear to her very first prom.It's the most popular of all my books and I am sure this production by the brilliant Birmingham Stage Company will delight not just children but their parents and of course grandparents'.Here's one of those gestures that, when judged purely in terms of sweetness, will long be tough to match and forever impossible to exceed: High school kid asks his "Granny" to be his prom date, not because he's desperate but because he adores her.
It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing – staying with Granny!"We do not chance leaving any stone unturned when it comes to safety," the principal said.It's easy to fill in a few details about this story: The student's name is Bryce Maine, his grandmother's name is Catherine Maine, he is a senior at Eufaula High School in Alabama, and the ban by its principal, Steve Hawkins, has left both Bryce and Granny heartbroken.But what Ben doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret - and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could ever imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!
