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’t 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’s burgeoning romance but less than impressed by Charles’s friend, Will Darcy, who’s snobby and pretentious. Darcy doesn’t seem to like Lizzie either, but she assumes it’s because her family doesn’t have money. Clearly, Will Darcy is a pompous jerk — so why does Lizzie find herself drawn to him anyway?
Will Lizzie’s pride and Will’s prejudice keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making?
How can you describe a book that you loved from beginning to end? How can I find the right words to even describe how much in love I am with this book? Yes, this book has found a happy home on my favorites shelf and I have already recommended it to a few of my friends and family.
I absolutely loved the characters in this book! Darcy came off a little snobby at first, but once you read more about him you fall head over heels in love with him! Lizzie was a great character as well that made you empathize with her and cheering for her throughout the entire story! Jane was a great best friend that stood by Lizzie when she needed it and Lizzie made sure to be there for her as well. Charles was the perfect compliment to Jane and I was also cheering for that couple as well.
The ending was great and was perfect for Lizzie. This is what I wanted to happen at the end so she could shove it down the throats of all those snobby and wealthy brats she went to school with! I loved, loved, loved this book! Did I mention that I love this book?
If you are looking for a cute, yet predictable at times, teen love story with a spin on the classic story, then this is the book you need to pick up! Don’t pass it by in the stores! As soon as your eyes make contact with this gorgeous cover, pick it up and head for the register! Then be prepared to be swept away in a fun and great story that will keep you hooked until the end!
