After winter break, the girls at the 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.

Elizabeth Eulberg was born and raised in Wisconsin before making a career in the New York City book biz. She is also the author of The Lonely Hearts Club and lives outside of New York City.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Read I read this in one evening, because I was literally addicted and could not stop! I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to read Pride and Prejudice, but are a bit intimidated by the writing style and length of the book. I think it was a fantastic contemporary retelling of the classic tale of Lizzy Bennet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreaming of Books Review (May Contain Spoilers) Being the big Pride and Prejudice fan that I am (I have 3 different adaptations on DVD and used to read a lot of P&P fan fiction online)…I jumped at the chance to read Elizabeth Eulberg’s modern adaptation of one of my all time favourite books. Lizzie Bennett, a scholarship student at Longbourn Academy doesn’t seem to fit it. Her fellow classmates all look down at her because of her status. Her only friends at school are her best friend and roommate, Jane, and fellow scholarship student Charlotte. I loved Lizzie. She’s determined, doesn’t give up and a hard worker. She makes do with what she has and has worked hard to get where she is…something that the rich students at Longbourn will never achieve. Darcy is brooding, sweet and I find always very polite and the perfect gentlemen. The misunderstanding between the two stems from her pride and his prejudice. As their feeling for each other grow they deny them at first but later realize that they have both misjudged the other. It usually takes me 3-4 days to read a book but I finished this in less than a day. There were some differences but Prom and Prejudice stayed true to the original story and even though I know the story and what’s going to happen, Eulberg tweaked it enough and added in enough humour to make this a fresh, fun take on such a classic story. I think it would be a great book for both middle grade and teen readers to enjoy and hopefully they might decide to read the original story as well.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Lonely Hearts Club:"A must-read for anyone who's ever fallen in love-or sworn it off completely. A funny, fantastic debut."

A great debut!""It's hard not to get caught up in this good natured revenge fantasy." -The New York Times Book Review"A delightful coming-of-age story about learning to define yourself without shutting the door on love." -Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games trilogy
