Summary: 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 with 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?
Will Lizzie’s pride and Will’s prejudice keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making? Whatever the result, Elizabeth Eulberg, author of The Lonely Hearts Club, has concocted a very funny, completely stylish delight for any season - prom or otherwise.

My thoughts:
Prom & Prejudice is an amazing novel. Elizabeth Eulberg is able to combine topics such as bullying and discrimination against different classes with a funny, romantic, love story seamlessly. Lizzie Bennet is a perfect heroine- strong and sassy, yet vulnerable and sweet. I would recommend that if you pick up this book; make sure you have nothing else to do, because you won’t be able to put it down. Eulberg’s writing is crisp and clear, and Prom & Prejudice is a book you will want to read again and again.
