Blurb: Georgia can’t figure out why the burden of a Y chromosome seems to make guys so hard to understand. First, there’s the handsome but slippery Jeremy Wrentham. After Georgia shared some pretty devastating kisses with him, she found her way home and he found her sister!
And then there’s Michael Endicott, who never fails to let her know that her family’s quirkiness lies too far outside the pale for this preppie townie. But if he really feels that way, why is he in Georgia’s kitchen, asking her out? And why don’t boys come with instruction manuals?

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Pride and Prep School was a short, sweet story. The writing style was interesting and the execution was done pretty well. I wish instead of breaking out this book into so many parts, it was just compiled into one single proper book because I was genuinely disappointed when it ended so abruptly.

Anyway, the characters were funny and even though I found Georgia very very judgmental and annoying sometimes, I didn't exactly mind it because the title of the novella does have the word Pride in it and I had been expecting the snarkiness. That still didn't change the fact that she treated Micheal like crap (just when I was actually beginning to like the guy, nonetheless) and that grated on ym nerves big time.
Even after that, I still couldn't stop reading it as I was curious to find out what'll happen next. Unfortunately, by the time Georgia realized her mistakes and things actually started getting fun, the story finished off. Whatta buzzkill. -.-

Overall, Pride and Prep school was an okay read. Too short for my taste, honestly but if you loved Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (like me) then I'd say you should definitely try this one! Although, it'd be better if you kept all three of the novellas with you and read them back to back. (it literally took me an hour to finish this one :P)

Stephanie Wardrop grew up in Reading, Pennsylvania where she started writing stories when she ran out of books to read. She’s always wanted to be a writer, except during the brief period of her childhood in which piracy seemed like the most enticing career option—and if she had known then that there actually were “girl” pirates way back when, things might have turned out very differently. She currently teaches writing and literature at Western New England University  and lives in a town not unlike the setting of Snark and Circumstance with her husband, two kids, and five cats. With a book out—finally—she might be hitting the high seas any day now.
