BOOK REVIEW TIME AGAIN! Pride and Popularity by Jenni James

Chloe doesn’t care to be part of the popular crowd and for sure doesn’t want to be part of the Taylor Anderson fan club. Ever since the first time Chloe meets Taylor she sees how conceited he is and she vows not be a part of all those girls that swoon over him. Chloe’s senior year lands her in art class with Taylor and he sits at her table with her two best friends. She tries and tries not to fall for his stunning good looks and charm but it becomes obvious to everyone around her that Taylor is into her and she doesn’t believe it. Taylor is rich and always has a cheerleader as a girlfriend so why would he be interested in her? As they butt heads many times Chloe has to come to terms with her true feelings.
This is a perfect modern-day twist to the great story with all the important characters from the original Pride and Prejudice. I loved when I recognized a character and the part they play in this new version. Chloe is a red headed spicy girl who portrayed a modern Elizabeth; she is a very enjoyable character. Taylor Darcy Anderson is a dreamboat who grows on you. 
My favorite part is the costume party Chloe throws for Halloween; I totally want to steal that idea. 
This is a fun read and I couldn't put the book down. I read the whole book in one day. I’m excited for the other books in “The Jane Austen Diaries” and see how Jane Austen’s stories adapt to our teenagers lives today.
