This book was SO sweet! I absolutely loved it! I tend to be a sucker for teen Jane Austen spinoffs, but this is definitly one of my favorites. It's different than others in that the characters names are different, which i really liked. The book was also really clean in that there wasn't any cursing, which was nice. DEFINITLY cannot wait for the rest of the series!

Oh my gosh! This is one of the BEST books i have ever read. I would reccomend it for 12 and up. The book is clean with no cussing but does include (bit of a spoiler alert) an older guy who hits on younger girls but it does not get graphic or anything in any way. I thought the story was sweet. I have never read pride and prejudice but have seen the play and i thought this book was better since its easier to understand and relate to. I read this book in less than two days if that says anything. :)

I love most re-tellings of Pride and Prejudice. It is my favorite Jane Austen book. Jenni James has created a modern, teen version of Pride and Prejudice that will delight any Jane Austen fan. Chloe Elizabeth Hart is the main female character in this fun tale. She is a normal teenage girl dealing with the ups and downs of high school life. For many years there has been one boy who has become the bane of her existence. Taylor Darcy Anderson is the most popular boy in school and he wants to recruit Chloe into his fan club. Chloe doesn't like the antics of the popular crowd and resists being assimilated into his group of admirers. This scenario is the basis for so many humorous things that happen in the novel. Jenni James has written a very engaging character in Chloe. This teenage girl is more mature than some adults. At the same time, she is very much written with a teenage voice. The characters are all very real and the situations are things that happen in every high school across America. It is a lot of fun to see the cat and mouse chase happening between Taylor and Chloe. The only thing I couldn't relate to was how strict Chloe's Mom was. I may have to get with it and start practicing being more strict before my daughter starts dating in three years. As in the original Pride and Prejudice, I liked the main character's father better than the mother. I also have to say that I was very happy with the ending of this novel. I recommend that Pride and Popularity be read together by mothers and daughters. This is what I plan to do. I loved this book and I am giving this book 4 stars for being a fantastic read!! I truly look forward to reading the rest of The Jane Austen Diaries. The next book in the series, Northanger Alibi, will be released in November 2011.
