Prom and Prejudice, by Elizabeth Eulberg

This doesn’t have the stakes of the original, but it is a lightweight, delightful homage to Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The private schools of Longbourn (for girls) and Pemberly (for boys)– see what she did there?–pair their well-to-do students up every year for a no-holds-barred prom to end all proms. But scholarship student Lizzie Bennett has nothing but contempt for the rich kids who mock her relative poverty and none is worse than the stuck-up Will Darcy. Great fun.
