Waiting on Wednesday-Prom and Prejudice

August 17th, 2010 by Debbie's World of Books

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s pick is Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg.  It’s due out January 2011.

Description from Goodreads.com:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single guy in his spring semester at Pemberly Academy must be in want of a prom date.

After winter break, the girls at very prestigious, very wealthy, girls-only Longbourn Academy are suddenly obsessed with the prom, which they share with the nearby, equally elitist, all-boys Pemberly school. Lizzie Bennett, who attends Longbourn on scholarship, isn’t exactly 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 Will Darcy, Charles’s friend, who’s as snobby and pretentious as his friend is nice. He doesn’t seem to like Lizzie either, but she assumes it’s because her family doesn’t have money. It doesn’t help that Charles doesn’t seem to be asking Jane to be his prom date, or that Lizzie meets George Wickham, who tells her that Will Darcy sabotaged his scholarship at Pemberly. Clearly Will Darcy is a pompous jerk who looks down on the middle class–so imagine Lizzie’s surprise when he asks her to the prom!

Will Lizzie’s prejudice and Will’s pride keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making? From Elizabeth Eulberg comes a very funny, completely stylish prom-season delight of Jane Austen proportions.

    Hmmm. Another P&P book. This one looks interesting. I should see if my library has a copy of it. I have liked very few P&P take offs.

    I’m not ordinarily a person who reads loads of Austen redos. But I really liked The Lonely Hearts Club by this author so I’m interested to see if I like this one too.
