Pride and Popularity

Pride and Popularity
Jenni James

My rating: ★★★

ISBN: 9780983829300
Publisher: Brigham Distributing
Date of publication: July 13, 2011
Age: Grades 8 and up
Genre: Romance

Themes: pride, popular crowd, high school, clean romance

Chloe despises the popular crowd, but there's on in particular: Taylor Anderson, the most popular guy in school. Every girl fawns over him and he loves it, never going without a girlfriend for more than a couple of days. She finds it sickening, especially when it seems he's falling for her. And no, she does not like him back. Not at all. Maybe.

Cheesy Pride and Prejudice retelling coming right up! With a side of ultra-conservative ideals! Okay, now that I got that off of my chest, I have to admit, (it's true) I actually kinda liked it in all of its corny-ness (I know, but I'm not sorry). I read it in just a couple of hours one evening--it's just fluff. But it's cute fluff. I actually thought the retelling worked pretty well in the high school setting, hitting all the important parts. It's super, super clean (like, SQUEAKY clean) and super conservative. So if that's not your style, than yeah, you'll hate it. But me? I'd recommend it. Especially to those parents that want something clean for their daughters.
