Pemberley Ball: Mr. Darcy, the Young

A lively tune for a reel draws the younger crowd onto the dance floor in a hurry. Among them are Lydia, Kitty, Georgiana and her friend Genoviece.

A note received...

Greetings Dear Georgiana,

My aunt, Lady Augusta Crosby and I, are very pleased to accept your thoughtful invitation to your Ball.

My aunt will most likely wear her black, but she has decided to splurge and get me this beautiful dress for my first Ball.

I am so looking forward to seeing you again, and meeting your darling Fitzwilliam, whom you have told me so much about. Please let him know we will arrive in my aunt's barouche, rather than my phaeton. That should allow him some peace of mind!

Lady Genoviece Greenly


Finding Mr. Darcy:
High School Edition
by Erin Butler
Amazon | Goodreads

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.
