Journal Entry 1 by megami-no-ushi from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, June 09, 2012
This was an adorable re telling of pride and prejudice in a modern New England boarding school. It did a great job of updating the classic to a modern story with a unique take. It was great fun to read on my way back to school.

From Amazon:
After winter break, the girls at the 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.

This was a fun, well written modern retelling that stayed pretty close to the source material. It was simplified but still stayed true. I really enjoyed it.

Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing January meet-up. I have yet to read Price and Prejudice, but this will mark the third book I've read using the premise of the original.

Journal Entry 13 by locker-monster at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Tuesday, January 26, 2016
I was wrong. This is the *fourth* book I've read that adapts the plot of Pride and Prejudice (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Longbourn, and Bridget Jones' Diary being the other three). It does keep to the original plot quite well and all of the characters are there, but I will freely admit that I didn't enjoy this book that much. It feels like a high school AU fanfic (not that there's anything wrong with those). Oh, and it also bugs me how Will does everything; Lizzie has no initiative. Like, why isn't Lizzie capable of rescuing Lydia from Wick on her own? This is a modern take on Pride and Prejudice; it wouldn't be weird if the author changed a few other things. Man, I really need to read the original Pride and Prejudice at some point...
