Chloe Hart is just an ordinary senior in high school. She's not one of the "Popular" crowd, but she does have plenty of her own friends. Her family is just a little crazy, but whose isn't? I love the character of her mom, she is such an individual! It seems she had asked Chloe's younger sister, Cassidy, to clean her room for 3 weeks, she decided that was long enough and starts to "clean" it herself, using garbage bags for all of the stuff on the floor. Chloe finally has what she's been waiting her whole high school career for, an art class with her two best friends, Alyssa and Maddie. Unfortunately for her Taylor Andersen is also in that art class. Chloe has been avoiding him for ages, all of the girls in school are in love with him, except Chloe and he seems to have a problem with that. Chloe can't understand why he wants her, when all those other girls like him. Things get pretty crazy when Chloe gets an "urgent" message from Taylor to call him on his cell phone. But when she calls him back, he claims to have not called her at all, but who would have called her? This is a modern day re-telling of Pride and Prejudice, on of my very favorite books of all time! I LOVED this book! I read this book in less than a day, it really held my attention. I can't wait to read the second book in this series, Northanger Alibi.

This book is amazing. The thing I love most about it is that the story has been changed just enough to make it new and exciting but not TOO much that we lose the beauty of Jane Austen. This book is so much fun!

I love Pride and Prejudice and find myself reading many spin-offs, and enjoying most of them. This one was soooo cute--a definite must read for YA/P&P fans. Jenni James took the story and completely molded it to a 21st century fit.
Chloe Hart is apparently the only girl immune to Taylor Anderson's charms. He is almost a local celebrity at the high school and Chloe has a thing against popularity. He was almost mean at times, yet so utterly adorable.
I love how the story was completely adapted to modern teens and current situations. It was cute, humorous, and completely clean!! The romance was almost knee-buckling. I can't wait for the other books in this Jane Austen Diaries series to come out!

I LOVE the title of this book!
Can Chloe get past her PRIDE?
Can Taylor get past his POPULARITY?
Isn't it amazing how we judge so harshly and believe all that is said without knowing all of the facts?
Taylor is just trying to do what he thinks is best...now it is Chloe's turn to work through all of the information she has been given to find the truth.

This is a great, clean read for the young girls and the author does a lot to follow Jane Austin's writing. I strongly recommend this book.
