I really like Pride and Prejudice, so I was excited to win this retelling. This book changes the setting to modern-day Texas. Instead of neighborhood dances, the activity is a debutante ball. Twins Megan and Julia are both accepted as debs because their family is a legacy. The problem is that Megan is not very girly. She prefers playing soccer, which gets her into some trouble and put on debutante probation. If she can’t prove herself, she will be kicked out and disgrace her family.
The entire story plays out, with some tweaks and updates, of course. There’s a Darcy and a Bingley, and a *cough*bitchy*cough* Caroline Bingley. There’s also an untrustworthy George Wickham. My familiarity with the story made it hard to be truly surprised by how it turns out.
