If you are hoping to find a YA book full of paranormal beasts, sex, or teens who act much more like under-aged adults, I suggest you save your money and do not buy this book. In fact don't buy any of The Jane Austen Diaries. However, if you are looking for a clean, lighthearted, sweet romance, where teens are good and happy and normal--like all of the teens I know (including my own!) then read on. You've come to the right place. :) --Jenni

Chloe Elizabeth Hart despises the conceited antics of the popular crowd, or more importantly, one very annoying self-possessed guy, Taylor Anderson, who seems determined to make her the president of his fan club! As if! Every girl in the whole city of Farmington, New Mexico, is in love with him, but he seems to be only interested in Chloe.

This modern high school adaptation of “Pride and Prejudice” is a battle of wits as Chloe desperately tries to remain the only girl who can avoid the inevitable—falling for Taylor.

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed the book and the writers style in telling the story. I couldn't totally connect with the characters, thought I did see the appeal of Taylor. Chloe wanted to be different from everyone and not fawn all over Taylor, so instead they spent years getting little digs at each other, the whole time Chloe never realizing that Taylor actually did have a thing for her. So glad that the ending was wrapped up nice and neat, though I would have liked to know if they continued on after the ending.
