That Girl Darcy

If you know me, you know that I’m a sucker for a good Pride and Prejudice story. Anything with a Mr. Darcy involved makes me swoon. I’ve read many stories centered on the brooding man, so when I had the opportunity to read a book that made a female version of Mr. Darcy I knew I had to read it.

Elliott Bennett, a high school student ready to take on his senior year is gliding through life. He’s a normal teenage boy who enjoys reading, skateboarding, working, and attending parties with his friends. During lunch, this geeky boy discusses ways to avoid zombies, which superhero is his favorite, and he constantly tries to steer clear of any adults asking him what he plans to do when he graduates.

The last thing on Elliot’s list is finding a girl and falling in love. However, a new family has moved into the huge manor across the field from him and the two beautiful girls they bring with them. One who happens to wear an eternal scowl, and could trip the angels by the way her nose is constantly turned up at those that are beneath her. If Darcy is such a stuck up snot, why can’t Elliot get her out of his mind? Why is he so taken by her?

Following all the characters you love and hate in the classic tale complete with a whirlwind romance of Jake and Bridget that ends in heartache because of preconceived prejudices, That Girl, Darcy is well crafted and entertaining. I enjoyed James Ramos’ writing and felt that it read smoothly and felt that the characters and the plot were strong and kept my attention and I couldn’t put it down once I started.
