Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Thoughts:

Finding Mr. Darcy: High School Edition is a cute, fun read, especially for fans of Jane Austen. It’s full of first love and misunderstandings and fangirling and figuring out how to make sense of the things you love. Liza, a self-professed Jane Austen fangirl, gets the surprise of a lifetime when she’s told she’s won a trip to England to study British writers. And it just so happens that the hot new boy at school is going too. It’s the perfect contemporary set up for a Jane Austen mash-up. With lots of Austen references and quotes—not to mention Liza’s fun JA tees—it will speak to readers whose copies of P&P and Emma and all the rest are as tattered as Liza’s.

The story moves quickly, and while it frustrated me in a few parts, I was happy to see how it all worked out in the end, and that Liza picked the boy who I’d been rooting for all along.
