Description

"A fun, modern take on Pride and Prejudice."--Jojo Moyes, bestselling author of Me Before You

In this hilarious reboot of Pride and Prejudice, Megan McKnight is a soccer star with Olympic dreams. When her Southern belle mother secretly enters her as a debutante for the 2016 deb season in their hometown of Dallas, she's furious--and has no idea what she's in for.

Megan's attitude swiftly gets her on probation with the mother hen of the debs, and she's given a month to prove she can ballroom dance, display impeccable manners, and curtsey like a proper Texas lady or she'll get the boot and disgrace her family. The perk of being a debutante, of course, is going to parties, and it's at one of these lavish affairs where Megan gets swept off her feet by the debonair and down-to-earth Hank Waterhouse. If only she didn't have to contend with a backstabbing blonde and her handsome but surly billionaire boyfriend, Megan thinks, being a deb might not be so bad after all. But that's before she humiliates herself in front of a room full of ten-year-olds, becomes embroiled in a media-frenzy scandal, and gets punched in the face by another girl.

The season has officially begun...but the drama is just getting started. Find out for yourself why this pitch-perfect blend of scandal, romance, and humor is being hailed as the best Austen adaptation since Clueless.
