I purchased this book, thinking it might be a cute re-telling of Jane Austen's P&P. While the character names were similar, personalities were exaggerated and over the top. Even though the story (what there is of it) is cute, it is incredibly poorly written. The dialogue is very sophmoric, as though the writer is trying to use every entry in her tag phrase list ("he said...check. she said....check. she grimaced....check. he grinned ....check., etc). Much of the writing sounds as though the writer was trying to write phrases she thought young people would say. Instead these conversations come out sounding incredibly stilted and ridiculous, as they sound completely unnatural. Many of the conversations become heated and then lighten up for virtually no reason. The true Jane Austen fan among us may feel this title is a must read, but I think it's best to wait to check it out of the local library.
