Moving to California was what we had to do, mom got offered a really good job at Coral Tree Prep High in Los Angeles, a plus side you might think yet it’s not, not when the job your mom was offered is school principal and that is the exact same place you will be attending school.
But when your sister dearest falls in love with a gorgeous guy and you suddenly find yourself spending time with the son of Hollywood royalty Derek Edwards then you can really kiss your normal life good bye.
On an attempt to make lunch time bearable Elise tries to talk to Derek only to find him presumptions and way too silent.
Without knowing it Elise finds a friend in the charming Webster Grant who seems to know how to get into Derek’s bad side. Elise will learn that there is more to their story then meets the eye and she will have to make a decision in the type of company she wants to keep.
Ok, lets start with the obvious this is a book that follows the Pride and Prejudice formula, so if you are a fan of the original here is a heads up.
I find that this book might be a way to get a new generation into Pride and Prejudice but, is it worth the spoilers for the new readers, honestly I don’t think so. But as a fan in search of something with the P&P flavor or at least the formula then yes this is for you.
This story is enjoyable, but just know that if you want realistic fiction just know it tends more into realistic glam, which is more like 80’s “normal” there is a bit of glam and exaggeration in those stories.
I would have liked to see an original twist in this story something that would make me forget that this story was based on P&P and feel that Claire LaZebnik made this story her all, sadly this wasn’t the case, the story was enjoyable a nice break into something that I already knew in a different setting.
Have you read Epic Fail? What are your thoughts??
