Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg Review + Contest
Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
"Lizzie Bennet, who attends Longbourn Academy on scholarship, isn't exactly 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 Will Darcy, a pompous jerk who looks down on the middle class. So imagine Lizzie's surprise when Will asks her to the prom! Will Lizzie's pride and Will's prejudice keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making?"- summary from Big Honcho Media
I really enjoyed this book. It was a nice, fun read and a good update on Pride and Prejudice. I liked seeing the connections between the two and the characters in this new setting.
I couldn't put this book down. I literally curled up on my couch and read the book in several hours. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon. I liked Lizzie's voice and the situations she's put in. I enjoyed seeing the romance between her and Darcy, of course; I do like seeing two characters who originally hate each other learn to love each other.
Overall, this is a fun, sweet book. I'm not sure if it's worth the hardcover price (maybe at a discount), but it is a book to check out, however you get to it (except illegally downloading it- don't do that). Get to it via a paying method, or through the library.
