Finding Mr Darcy: High School Edition

Review by: Nahomi
Sixteen-year-old Liza Johnson takes fangirl to a whole new level of crazy when she decides to take dating advice from her literary hero: Jane Austen.

With the help of her best friends, Liza sheds her ancient-speak and complete Austen wardrobe for something a bit more modern in an attempt at finding her very own Mr. Darcy.

Enter Will, the new kid and Liza's Darcy incarnate. Add her BFF's ex to mix and the sexy Brit who kisses with an accent, and Liza is in trouble.

So, what's a girl to do? Without her mom to go to relationship advice, Liza turns to the only person she can truly trust with matters of the heart via her mother's copy of COMPLETED WORKS OF JANE AUSTEN.

It's too bad Austen's heroines have never played Spin the Bottle or Seven Minutes in Heaven. Liza's determined to find her true Austen-esque happy ending, but if she can't trust herself instead of books, she just might end up in her own tragic love story.

3 stars out of 5 stars

I am a fan of Jane Austen; so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to read this book. I thought the story was cute, and had a modern twist on Pride and Prejudice. The story flowed seamlessly from beginning to end, the pacing was steady and kept me moving right along with the story.

Eliza is a bit of a flake. She doesn't really know what she wants and is having a hard time deciding who she wants to be with. Although she is a nice character she comes off as a little silly and very self centered. Janie is much like Eliza, but she likes to dye her hair and acts rebellious. Will and Ryan are the main love interest and neither really had the swoon factor for me.

There was a love square I would call it going on throughout the story which had me confused for most of the book. There are some very touching scenes in the book which warmed me up to the story, and the trip to England was fun to read about and imagine. All in all the story was good but not really my cup of tea.
