Pride and Prejudice gets remixed in this smart, funny, gorgeous retelling of the classic, starring all characters of color, from Ibi Zoboi, National Book Award finalist and author of American Street. Zuri Benitez has pride. Brooklyn pride, family pride, and pride in her Afro-Latino roots. But pride might not be enough to save her rapidly gentrifying neighborhood from becoming unrecognizable. When the wealthy Darcy family moves in across the street, Zuri wants nothing to do with their two teenage sons, even as her older sister, Janae, starts to fall for the charming Ainsley. She especially can't stand the judgmental and arrogant Darius. Yet as Zuri and Darius are forced to find common ground, their initial dislike shifts into an unexpected understanding. But with four wild sisters pulling her in different directions, cute boy Warren vying for her attention, and college applications hovering on the horizon, Zuri fights to find her place in Bushwick's changing landscape, or lose it all. In a timely update of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, critically acclaimed author Ibi Zoboi skillfully balances cultural identity, class, and gentrification against the heady magic of first love in her vibrant reimagining of this beloved classic.… (mer)

diverse fiction (modern Brooklyn version of Pride and Prejudice, with Haitian/Dominican Zuri "ZZ" as Elizabeth).
I read to page 82--it was ok, but felt a bit formulaic (this is where Darius/Darcy saves ZZ/Elizabeth's life, this is where ZZ/Elizabeth has to sit through a picnic for Janae/Jane's sake, etc.), even for someone who only very vaguely remembers the details of P&P). I enjoyed Zoboi's American Street but Pride not my favorite. ( )

Once again Ibi Zoboi does not disappoint. Her eloquent retelling of pride and prejudice brought tears to my eyes and detailed life in bushwick of Brooklyn in New York City. In short it is amazing. She manages to bring you right into Zuri’s life. This book reminded me why Ibi Zoboi is one of my favorite authors currently. I would definitely recommend it. ( )

Book on CD performed by Elizabeth Acevedo

This YA romance is set in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, and features a Dominican/Haitian family. The Benitez sisters are F I N E and everyone in the neighborhood knows it. Then a new family moves in. The Darcys are wealthy and have totally renovated the dilapidated property across the street from the Benitez's apartment building into their own bougie mansion. Their two sons - Darius and Ainsley - are not only rich, but handsome and immediately attract the attention of all the girls in the hood.

It's a pretty good retelling of Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice. No, these girls are not going to immediately wed the Darcy boys, but they do have the all-important sparks of interest. I could easily identify some of the situations and characters from the original.

I really liked Zuri (Elizabeth). She’s feisty, intelligent, true to herself, loyal to her family, and not about to take shade off Darius’s nose-in-the-air grandmother (think Lady Catherine de Bourgh). Ainsley (Bingley) and Janae (Jane) will start off like gangbusters, only to break off contact. The Charlotte/Mrs Collins relationship is here (though there is no hasty marriage), as is the Wickham/Lydia debacle (again no hasty marriage). One of my favorite scenes has no clear relationship to the original, and that is when Zuri performs one of her original poems.

All told, a totally satisfying retelling of a beloved classic.

Elizabeth Acevedo is quickly becoming a favorite narrator for me. She does a great job of the audio. ( )

A Pride and Prejudice retelling through the eyes of Zuri, a black girl living in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn. She is not happy when the Darcy family moves into the mcmansion across the street from her family's apartment. She believes them to be uppity and then she meets the two sons. Her prejudices are comfirmed. She learns to live with them and she learns that first meetings don't always let you know the truth.

I enjoyed this story. It was a quick read. There are all the elements from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice but there are changes that fit today and the community that Zuri lives in as well as the teen characters. This was very well done and I am so glad I read it. Love the story line! Loved the writing! ( )

An interesting twist on Pride and Prejudice, set in Bushwick, a part of Brooklyn - not sure I was the target audience for this as some of the writing seemed to be more aimed at younger folks; still, it did spin this in an interesting economic way. ( )
