Prom and Prejudice (2011), by Elizabeth Eulberg

Eulberg-PromProm and Prejudice is a delightful romp through classic English literature.  As an homage to Austen’s novel, it functions well, bringing the social messages of the title forward to modern urban American life.  This is not to say that the book is either well written or profound, but it proves that the true expression of real human emotion that Austen is so famous for can be replicated in modern YA fiction. This is rises far above the level of Gossip Girl, The Clique, or even The Luxe, all of which are targetted at the same reading demographic.
