Prom and Prejudice

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.

I thought the Lonely Heart's Club was a great read and I can surely say this one is too. The only thing I wished the author had done was add a few extra chapters to the end. Will is darling ( some of the time),  Jane is lovely and kind, and Lizzie is talented and funny. Surprising twists in the story keep you on your toes and laughing through out this delightful read. Bravo , Elizabeth Eulberg. Bravo.

Read, Write Love
