Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After winter break, the girls at the very prestigious Longbourn Academy become obsessed with the prom. Lizzie Bennet, who attends Longbourn on a scholarship, isn\u2019t interested in designer dresses and expensive shoes, but her best friend, Jane, might be — especially now that Charles Bingley is back from a semester in London.

Lizzie is happy about her friend\u2019s burgeoning romance but less than impressed by Charles\u2019s friend, Will Darcy, who\u2019s snobby and pretentious. Darcy doesn\u2019t seem to like Lizzie either, but she assumes it\u2019s because her family doesn\u2019t have money. Clearly, Will Darcy is a pompous jerk — so why does Lizzie find herself drawn to him anyway?

Will Lizzie\u2019s pride and Will\u2019s prejudice keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making? Whatever the result, Elizabeth Eulberg, author of The Lonely Hearts Club, has concocted a very funny, completely stylish delight for any season — prom or otherwise.

Review:

"Joining the many authors using Jane Austen as a springboard, Eulberg (The Lonely Hearts Club) updates characters and plot details from Pride and Prejudice to create a clever, modern romance. Tormented since her first day at the elite Longbourn Academy, scholarship student Lizzie, a gifted pianist, dislikes most of her wealthier peers. She particularly loathes smug Will Darcy, but tolerates his presence to appease roommate Jane, who has affection for his best friend, Charles. Blinded by prejudice against the upper crust, Lizzie turns a cold shoulder to Will's friendly overtures, realizing almost too late that his intentions are commendable and the one boy she trusts — a townie named Wick — is a scoundrel. Readers won't doubt that Will and Lizzie will end up a couple, but will still enjoy the merry chase as the Longbourn girls try to find suitable partners before the prom. Although Lizzie's Austenian narration feels rather prim beside the more contemporary dialogue, this parody of 21st-century social mannerisms shows that things haven't changed much in the romance department during the past 200 years. Ages 13 — up. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

From the much-buzzed-about author of "The Lonely Hearts Club" comes a prom-season delight of Jane Austen proportions.

Synopsis:

From the much-buzzed-about author of THE LONELY HEARTS CLUB (already blurbed by Stephenie Meyer, Lauren Myracle, and Jen Calonita), a prom-season delight of Jane Austen proportions.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single girl of high standing at Longbourn Academy must be in want of a prom date.
