Prom and Prejudice

Synopsis (from Amazon):  From the much-buzzed-about author of THE LONELY HEARTS CLUB (already blurbed by Stephenie Meyer, Lauren Myracle, and Jen Calonita), a prom-season delight of Jane Austen proportions.

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?

One (or more) Sentence Summary: What a nice story.  First let me give a shout out on the fact that this was a clean, nice language, great lessons learned type of book.  I bought this book at my middle schoolers book fair.  I read it first to ensure it was "clean."  Also, there are great messages throughout the book.  Don't judge a book by its cover (or people), work hard and you will be rewarded, be kind to others, girls can be very mean, and look out for the bad boys!  Now I will let my 7th graders read it and I know they will like it just as much.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I would like to read The Lonely Hearts Club!
