Lizzie is a wonderful person and kind but she's so tired of having to put up with the treatment at Longbourn. She's there for her music but she has to deal with so much from the students. People have thrown things in her face, they have put things in her shampoo to get rid of her hair, and many other things to her. She meets Wick and she thinks they are similar because he's a townie who went to Pemberly as a scholarship student. He was friends with Darcy but then something happened and he was kicked out.
Will has been raised with lots of money and he's a great guy. But he experienced something terrible with Wick and he's put up some major walls. But he shows what a wonderful person he is by doing some really great things for Lizzie.
Definitely worth reading.
No, I liked this book all on its own. The writing is engaging and fun. Ms. Eulberg doesn't take it too seriously. She's doesn't try to recreate Austen's Pride and Prejudice but rather takes it and pays homage in her own unique style. I loved the ways that she works in the names and attributes of people and places from the original. You still have the same main characters but their relationships may be slightly different (Jane and Lizze are roomies and friends, not sisters.) Names may be changed but the "essence" of the characters/relationships tend to be the same.
There were so many aspects of the story that I just found so enjoyable... the boarding schools (Longbourn for girls and Pemberly for boys,) Lizzie as a pianist, prom and it's critical role at the school, Bingley and Darcy's semester in London, it all worked so well with Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Eulberg's newly imagined version. ***dreamy sigh*** I just really, really liked it. It was a pleasure to read and when it was over I was smiling. I'm not going to spoil the end but I especially enjoyed the way Darcy and Elizabeth enjoyed prom :)
If you haven't read The Lonely Hearts Club start there. I imagine you'll be adding Prom & Prejudice to your "to read" pile before your done! You won't regret it!
I thought the story was cute and I enjoyed it but parts of it were extremely awkward. It was like the author was trying to meld the original story too closely to her modern version. Several times the characters ended up saying something so clunky that it jerked me right out of the story. Also, in this version Darcy was extremely misunderstood and didn't really do much wrong so Lizzie came off unlikable. I was annoyed with her by the end. Still, I'm glad I read it and I kept it on my Kindle. I'll probably read it again, clunky parts and all.

A fun remake of a classic novel. Lizzie attends a snobby all girls school on scholarship because of her piano playing ability.Read more
In the book description it talks about opposites falling in love, (aww) and possibly going to prom together, but NO!Read more
