Prom And Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
January 1, 2011


No cover yet. :-(


I didn't love Elizabeth Eulberg's first book Lonely Hearts Club, but I liked it well enough that I'm excited for her next book. Plus, I love Pride & Prejudice tie-ins.


Summary

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 guy in his spring semester at Pemberly Academy must be in want of a prom date.
After winter break, the girls at very prestigious, very wealthy, girls-only Longbourn Academy are suddenly obsessed with the prom, which they share with the nearby, equally elitist, all-boys Pemberly school. Lizzie Bennett, who attends Longbourn 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, Charles's friend, who's as snobby and pretentious as his friend is nice. He doesn't seem to like Lizzie either, but she assumes it's because her family doesn't have money. It doesn't help that Charles doesn't seem to be asking Jane to be his prom date, or that Lizzie meets George Wickham, who tells her that Will Darcy sabotaged his scholarship at Pemberly. Clearly Will Darcy is a pompous jerk who looks down on the middle class--so imagine Lizzie's surprise when he asks her to the prom!

Will Lizzie's prejudice and Will's pride keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making? From Elizabeth Eulberg comes a very funny, completely stylish prom-season delight of Jane Austen proportions. (courtesy of Goodreads)

  2. The Lonely Hearts Club is on my wish list. Can't wait to read it! Good to know that there will be a sequel.

  3. At first I though...ugh, not another adaptation but the plot sounds amazing! It's such an itneresting setting to put Pride and Prejudice in, I've never seen it used in terms of Prom at school. Great pick!
