A teen retelling of Pride and Prejudice set at an elite boarding school where Lizzie has won a scholarship and is going through being harassed. She meets Will Darcy when he returns from London and both judge the other as lacking. Lizzie learns that what she thought is not true and Will learns new things as well.

I enjoyed this a lot. It had the frame of Pride and Prejudice but it is all modern teen age scenario. I liked Lizzie and Jane. Lydia was a brat. Darcy is not as aloof and is more down to earth. Wick is still a jerk, loser, and user when all is said and done. The story does well in contemporary days. I had fun reading this and did it in one sitting. Great book! ( )

I'm not going to lie, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this quick read. I really liked the changes that were made to the characters. I thought the author did a great job keeping the integrity of the original story, but making changes to make it her own. ( )

I've heard some great things about this book, and while I love all the Pride & Prejudice "remakes" this one will now be at the top of my list. I always thought that the characters belonged in high school, and putting them in a prestigious prep school was even better. ( )

This was a great book palette cleanser for me. It read super quick. It has a high enjoyment factor - you don’t have to overthink or over analyze this one too much and I really liked that. Sometimes you just want to read a book for fun and not to dive into this complex world with new mythology and a completely different set of rules. This book is an easy filler read and I appreciate that/

Things I Liked:
This is a great retelling. The characters and the situation are recognizable, but very well modernized and create a fun story that is easy to get into.

I liked Lizzie’s character development through the story. To be honest, I found her to be rather judgemental and unlikeable for most of the book. But I like that she confronted her less than stellar qualities and tries to become a better person.

I thought Charles was such a sweetheart for most of the story. He is such a genuinely kind and good natured person that it was easy to root for him, even if he is easily manipulated by his sister.

Things I Didn’t Like:
This story is pretty forgettable. I could never remember which side characters were who and had to constantly look back to keep them straight.

I felt that the story was a little rushed, or at least could stand to be a little longer. This story was really only the bare bones - we get characters and setting and plot, but not much development through the story. It made for a really quick read, but not a very memorable one.

This isn’t a story that will stick with me, but I did enjoy it. It was quick and fun and light. I love retellings and this one was a win.

Cute, but it really was just Pride and Prejudice set in high school. None of the names have changed, and even the language is more reminiscent of the original than of any form of speech today's youth would employ. It was like reading one of those Abridged Classics for Early Readers, only instead of just cutting it short and dumbing it down, they also modernized it. I feel like I'd have been better served just re-reading the original. ( )
