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 about 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: Have I mentioned how much I loved Eulberg's first novel, The Lonely Hearts Club? I reviewed it last year so of course when I found out about Prom and Prejudice releasing, I knew I'd have to run right out and buy it! And I did.  As soon as it was available from amazon, I bought myself a copy! 

From the first page, I was hooked. We are introduced to Lizzy who just started Longbourn Academy a few months ago. She isn't like everyone else at the school. Heck, there is only one other student attending who is in the same boat as her. Lizzie is a scholarship student. Basically, she is shunned. She gets hit in the face with things, she gets picked on over and over again.  Not many people want to be associated with her, because she is seen as poor while everyone else at the school is worried about designer clothes and how to make themselves look better socially. Lizzie is a mastermind at piano. She just loves playing! And is very talented. 

Everyone at Longbourne Academy is also so obsessed with going to prom and finding the perfect date. Lizzie doesn't really care about that stuff. She shops at Old Navy and she appreciates the things she has.

At least Lizzie has one good friend, named Jane. Jane has started dating a boy from the other school named Charles. Jane really likes Charles and they start hanging out together but Jane always wants Lizzie to tag along. Of course also tagging along is Charles sister and Charles best friend Will Darcy. Darcy and Lizzie detest each other. They are constantly bickering and do not like each other one bit. Than Lizzie meets another guy George Wickham. Finally, Lizzie starts to think she can actually have a boyfriend but theres a motive between Wickham's relationship with Lizzie. The girl just can not get a break. And Darcy and Wickham hate each other.

I loved seeing Darcy and Lizzie's relationship develop. They do like each other, but in the beginning it's not really known why. We know that he doesn't like scholarship kids and Lizzie hates that! She thinks he's a stuck up snobby jerk.

I enjoyed seeing all the bickering back and forth. I loved Jane and Lizzie's friendship. I loved Prom and Prejudice so much. There are so many surprises throughout the book that make your stomach turn over; in a good way. It puts a smile on your face and makes you want to gush. 

Overall: I can't say enough about how much I loved Prom and Prejudice! It was a sweet, romantic, and funny book! If you haven't read The Lonely Hearts Club be sure to pick that one up when you pick up Prom And Prejudice! 

Cover: Gorgeous Cover.  I love the blue dress; its so pretty! And I love how she has scissors in her hand.

Great review! I've been wanting to read this book ever since hearing about it. I love the cover and it sounds like a cute read.

I haven't read the Lonely Hearts Club, yet. But I have it on my tbr/wish list on Goodreads as well.

Can't wait to be able to read both of them. :)
