Prom and Prejudice Review

Title: Prom & Prejudice

Author: Elizabeth Eulberg

Pages: 240

Cuteness: 5/5

Rating: 4/5

This is a cute book that is obviously a modern day telling of Pride and Prejudice with slight differences. Ok it is very different! Still a very cute book for teens!
Lizzie Bennet, who attends Longbourn on a scholarship, is a normal girl unlike all the rich snobs who treat her like dirt. Her only friend is her roommate (Jane) who like everyone else is in search for a prom date from the boy's school across the way. Jane manages to find a boy (Charles Bingley) who seems to be interested in her too. He has a stuck-up friend (Will Darcy) who threatens to tear the couple apart.
Lizzie is a pianist who dreams of making it big one day and wishes all the joy in the world for her friend. When Jane's heart is broken Lizzie blames Charles, his sister, and Will. Lizzie becomes friends with a boy (Wickham) who hates Will just as much as she does since Will got him kicked out of the school.
Even though she hates him Will does his best to change her mind. When he asks her to prom though he finds out that her feelings haven't changed. Even though he knows she hates him he still helps her out. (NO SPOILERS!!! XD)
When Jane's sister runs away with Wickham she turns to Will for help. After the incident Lizzie waits for Will to talk to her but he avoids her. She knows that if he asked her to the prom again that she's say yes.
Will he ask her? Will he even talk to her again?
Read the book to find out! Yes it is somewhat the same so you already know it ends happily but it is still the cutest read. Ok ok I'm strange but it is SO CUTE!!!

About The Author

Elizabeth Eulberg was born and raised in Wisconsin before heading off to Syracuse University and then making a career in the New York City book biz. She lives outside of Manhattan with her three guitars, two keyboards, and one drumstick. In researching The Lonely Hearts Club, she tried swearing off boys forever. It didn’t work. She did, however, learn how to play Rachmaninoff’s Eighteenth Variation from Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini on the piano while writing Prom and Prejudice, so she’s not a total slacker.
