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.
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?

    This book isn't a classic "Romeo, Juliet " style book. A scholarship girl gets into a prestigious school for the rich and finds herself shunned by most there. Finding her way she gets into the mess Prom and from there its a whirlwind. Definitely a modern twist on a classic story of girl falls for boy (and vice versa).

      This book was pretty much the same thing as "Pride and Prejudice," but overall it was really good. So, Lizzie is on a music scholarship at Longbourn Academy, where the snobby rich girls that attend there, are completely obessed with prom. Lizzie, who isn't rich, doesn't care about designer dresses and pricy shoes so she plans not to go. Her best friend: Jane is pleased because her "boyfriend" Charles Bingley is back for the semester. During a party with Charles and Jane she meets Will "Darcy" and Caroline; who is Charles's twin. She immediately judges Darcy, and thinks of him as a cold and snobby guy while Darcy is just trying to be nice. Later on, she realizes she makes a huge mistake and feels really bad about it.

          Just recently finished this book over summer break... AMAZING! Elizabeth has proved herself yet again to be an amazing author. An amazing book of teen romance strugles and activity. Would definitly recomend to readers looking for a wonderfully written teen romance story.
