Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
angst. beach read, high school, romance
3/5 - worth the read
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?
I read this in a few hours. It was a light, fun read. I couldn't help but picture Matthew Macfayden and cast while reading. Which was awkward because they were just high school kids. Plus, I had this British accent in my head the whole time.
