"Prom and Prejudice"

Ok ... here's my confession for the day ... I have never read or watched Pride and Prejudice before.  There ... I said it!  I live in a house with the ultimate Pride and Prejudice fans (my mom and sister) and yet, I still myself on the outskirts ... not making the dive into "Mr-Darcy-land".  Haha  So when I first saw Prom and Prejudice, I had no expectations of what the pages held.

And my opinion is ... I loved it!  I think Prom and Prejudice will be a great read for anyone who is already familiar with Pride and Prejudice.  For people like me, it could serve as a way to introduce them to this beloved story. It is a light read and is suitable for teen up to adult readers. I kept wanting to read from the first page. I loved Prom and Prejudice so much! Here’s a sneak peek at this amazing novel:

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? 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.
