Prom & Prejudice

Prom & Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg.

Summery:In this modern Pride & Prejudice, Lizzie Bennett is a scholarship student at the elite school of Longbourn.She is looked down on and has horrible "pranks" if you could call them that done to her.
She has two friends(not counting her Piano teacher) Charlotte, a fellow scholarship student, and Jane, her roommate who hardly ever says a mean word.Jane talks about Charles, a guy who is different than the snobby Pemberly boys.She was right about him, but his friend Darcy?Let's just say that they have mutual feelings for each other...dislike.Now George Wickham she gets.He tells her a tale of woe.How Darcy took him in only to kick him out.Lizzie believes this and when she suspects he drove Jane and Charles apart well she gives him a good bashing.He sends her an email explaining that George Wickham"s tale was a lie.And that he tried to take advantage of his sister and then stole from his family.Lizzie isn't sure who to believe now.

Romance:Charles & Jane, Darcy & Lizzie, Lizzie thinks that Wickham wants to date her,but he is with someone else instead.No kissing though.Guess it wasn't in the original.


Violence:The mean Longbourn girls steal her coat, throw a milkshake in her face, pour coffee on her and some other mean pranks.She knocks George Wickham out.

Other:Wickham almost gets Jane's sister, Lydia. He and she are drunk when the get to them.

Time Period:Modern.

What I Thought:It was a great twist on the original story and was a really nice & easy read.

Rating & Age:4 stars.13 up.
