Kurzbeschreibung

It's obvious that Dante thinks he's way too good for Lizzie. And Lizzie knows Dante is a snob with a gift for pressing her buttons. But things are changing fast this year at the Academy. And when Lizzie's quest to stop those changes blows up in her face, taking her oldest friendship with it, she has nowhere else to turn but to Dante, with his killer blue eyes, his crazy-sexy smile, and his secrets... Secrets Lizzie can't seem to leave alone, no matter how hard she tries...

Dive into the fabulous, fun lives of six Academy girls as their friendships are tested, torn and ultimately triumph...

Cecilia Gray lives in the San Francisco Bay Area where she reads, writes and breaks for food. She also pens her biographies in the third person. Like this. As if to trick you into thinking someone else wrote it because she is important. Alas, this is not the case.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Really cute 6. Oktober 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As a Jane Austen Fan it was a must read for me.
All six of this series is from one of Austens finished books.

It is cute. A modern kind of Pride and Prejudice.
Imagine you would go into a school with the Name "the Jane Austen Academy".
and someone want to rename it because it is no longer a school just for girls.
What would you do? Fight for the Name? When you have the power as a Journalism? but what would happen when you run into a boy called Dante? What is Lizzie doing?

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Read 7. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I don't usually like classics, but with this book I wasn't sure whether a classic could be re-written to bring in the YA crowd. I found this book to be really well written, nicely placed with the characters. I loved Lizzie's enthusiasm and passion for her newspaper. Wasn't keen on Dante to start off with, but his character kinda grew on me. A really good read in my opinion.

I was sceptical at first but I really enjoyed this variation on the Pride and Prejudice theme. The characters are likeable and life-like. I also think that the story may lure young girls into reading the original book, which would be great.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I just wish it would have been longer! 19. April 2012
Von Schenni
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Things at the Jane Austen Acedemy are changing. Lizzie is good with change... most of the time. Fine, sometimes. But boys invading her former all girl's boarding school and the new "evil" headmastress trying to change the school's name is just too much! What's more is the trouble with her best friend Ellie who's been kind of distant lately and on top of it all there's Dante. Arrogant, snobbish, cold (and gorgeous!)Dante who obviously lives to aggravate her.
At least the new semester won't get boring...

If there's a word to describe this story it's CUTE. And unfortunately, short.
Really, the missing length is practically everything I can find fault with. But because of the limited page space a lot of my favorite parts of "Pride and Prejudice" had to be cut completely, like Jane and Charles Bingley for example. Nevertheless this was a delightful read and I liked how Cecilia Gray adapted the story and brought it to life in such a fresh way.
I could see Darcy in everything Dante did, could hear Austen's Lizzie speaking when Gray's Lizzie made a stand against him, but at the same time I never felt as if I've read it all before. And I just love how so many of Austen's heroines and heroes are coming together in this series. It's a great idea and I can't wait for the re-telling of "Sense and Sensibility".

2.0 von 5 Sternen Jane Austen Fell Flat 29. September 2013
Von Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
**I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This review and many others can be found on my blog, That Artsy Reader Girl**

I absolutely love Jane Austen-esque novels, so I was quite excited to read this book. While the story is light and cute, and it started off promising, there just wasn't much to it for me. It was a very quick read, so none of the characters were extremely developed or all that memorable. The writing itself was fine, but the plot line was not strong enough for me either.

I didn't like Lizzie very much. She came off as being mean and rather annoying. The investigative journalist aspect of her character kind of bothered me, just because I'm not a huge fan of books with this angle. It turned her into a nosy girl, shoving her way into everything. The romance was not believable, and was kind of all over the place. And... I kind of hated the school's nickname: Jasta. I know that's a really silly thing to dislike, but it just bugged me!

I think this all boils down to the fact that the story takes place in a boarding school, which I rarely enjoy about a book. Most boarding school characters a stuck-up and arrogant, and I really dislike reading about people like that. Also, it was short but still had a lot to cover. If there had been an extra 50-100 pages, I'm not necessarily sure I would have liked the book more, but it would have been a more solid foundation for the rest of the series. While I won't be continuing on with this series, I would encourage Jane Austen fans to give this a try if they are looking for a quick fix. I've seen a lot of raving reviews for Fall for You, so maybe you'd feel differently about it than I do!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun YA Contemporary Pride & Prejudice Retelling 22. November 2013
Von Sophia Rose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was very eager to read this book and the rest of the series for that matter because it took Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice tale, dusted it off and brought it into the twenty-first century. It now takes the form of a YA Contemporary Romance that combines the new with the tried and true. I wasn't sure what to expect and was actually a bit nervous even while curiosity raged so I was delighted to discover that I liked it for the most part. It was fun to see how the story both followed the P&P script and deviated a little in ways that made sense.

Lizzy Egmont returns for her junior year at Jane Austen Academy to discover that change is in the air and in her book, its all bad. The school has new anonymous owners, her nemesis of a teacher is now the principal, and her bestie seems to be acting odd and withdrawn though that might be because Lizzy sold her out by trading their chance to room together to become the managing editor of the school paper. Then there is the bit she overheard with Anne about the school getting a name change which will just be the worst. However, the biggest travesty in her mind is that the all girls school is now infested with boys making up half of the school population. And none of the boys are half so infuriating as Dante, the arrogant hottie who has made his disdain for Lizzy and everything else clear. Between following her journalistic instincts to smell out a story about Dante's little sister, attempting a bit of matchmaking with Anne and Rick to get them back together, nosing out who the new owners are and teaming up with Anne to thwart Bergie, Lizzy has a full plate. So why do her thoughts keep drifting to Dante the guy who can't stand her and always stares at her?

The storyline was fun and light for the most part. This is no deep character piece or angst-ridden plot. Lizzy is the narrator and I have to say her voice, behaviors, thoughts and words were very believable for a teen of her age. Truthfully, she annoyed me at first. I wanted to laugh when she called another girl a drama queen because that was what I had been thinking about Lizzy from page one. She has this totally skewed view of everything, but I do applaud her tenacity, compassion and zeal. She has a lot of growing to do and I warmed to her when I saw her start to open her eyes and really see things clearly as the story progressed. I liked how the spotlight was on the friendships and other connections and that it wasn't just one of those numerous stories where the focus of the romance pushes everything else away. Speaking of romances, this story gives two romances for the price of one with that secondary one going on between Anne and Rick.

That brings me to the connection of this story and how it is loosely based on the original Pride and Prejudice. Lizzy and Dante's story line is obviously that of Lizzy and Darcy. Lizzy has the beginnings of attraction to Dante and a curiosity about him until his mannerisms and his snubs drive her away. Then later, when she softens toward him, his secrets put a huge wedge between them which is ironic because Lizzy's secrets put a wedge between her and her best friend too forcing Lizzy to reassess what really has her miffed about Dante. The only niggle I really have is that things were rushed a bit in the end and the end came abruptly for me. I'm going to take a wait and see about this since its a series and maybe the next books offer the closure and tying up of loose ends that I need.

As a YA, this is one that could be put safely into the hands of even the youngest teen as it is all sweetness with not a hint of language, violence or sex.

I would recommend this one to those who enjoy YA Sweet Contemporary Romance and those who enjoy Jane Austen novel retellings.

My thanks to Net Galley and Cecilia Gray for the opportunity to read and review this book.

Fall For You: A Modern Retailing of Pride and Prejudice
(Jane Austen Academy, Book #1)
by Cecilia Gray

Rating: 3.5
Review on behalf of AToMR Book Blog Tours

Genre:Young Adult | Contemporary Romance

To say Lizzie and Dante are polar opposites is the understatement of the century. He's a snooty Exeter transfer with more money than Google. She's a driven study-a-holic barely keeping up with tuition. It's obvious that Dante thinks he's way too good for Lizzie. And Lizzie knows Dante is a snob with a gift for pushing her buttons.

But things are changing fast this year at the Academy. And when Lizzie's quest to stop those changes blows up in her face, taking her oldest friendship with it, she has nowhere else to turn but to Dante, with his killer blue eyes, his crazy-sexy smile, and his secrets... Secrets Lizzie can't seem to leave alone, no matter how hard she tries...

Lizzie Egmont is determined to become the first Junior in Jane Austen Academy history to become the school's newspaper Managing Editor--even if it means reneging on a roommate promise with her best friend, Ellie Dvorak, as well as "[ruffling] some feathers" among the new school administration along the way. Yet, as promising as this year is for Lizzie's journalism career, the current enrollment of a male student body into a once all female academy and the new unpleasant/high-fashioned headmaster, Katherine Berg (a.k.a. Bergie) really makes Lizzie's blood boil. And, as much as she would like to admit that the impressive male population at Jane Auction Academy does not damper her spirits in achieving her Ivy League acceptance spot into Georgetown, a "mussy brown [haired]" boy, name Dante Braxton, does begin to cast a shadow on Lizzie's long-term goals.

Now, Lizzie is on a mission to expose the new proprietor in the first switch of ownership since 1873 and challenge their corrupt decision to change the school's name and tradition -- in Lizzie's term "the new administration's evil plans to destroy her beloved Academy." But, at what costs will her determination to closely follow the school's motto ("We Will Be Heard") by printing her findings as a feature in the Gazette effect her (and those close to her) future at Jane Austen Academy?

This series is a great hodgepodge of Jane Austen's beloved characters, for the reader is treated to a retelling of Austen's well-known characters as modern teenagers attending the same high school. Overall, it is quite enjoyable to witness how well their original tales become entangled in the current setting and to see all their blended interactions/struggles. I was most excited about the characters from my favorite Austen book Persuasion--the sweet-tempted Anne Escober, whose family just recently lost the Jane Austen Academy to new owners and Rick Wright, who has just transferred from the Naval academy and shares a secretive past with Anne. Then you have the chic, knows-everything-about-everybody Emma and nice, puppy-eyed Edward (from Emma). The blonde, Cali-girl Ellie Dvorak (from Sense & Sensibility) plays a prominent role as Lizzie's best bud. Lastly, if you are a fan of the Pride and Prejudice novel, you will recognize fellow characters like Josh Wickham and Georgiana throughout Fall For You--and some of their secrets might catch you by surprise!

All in all, be prepared for lots of teenage angst, sweet budding romance, and some self-centered (i.e. prideful) characteristics. But, if you enjoy modern classical stories, are an Austen enthusiast, and have a passion for the young-adult genre--you will find the Jane Austen Academy series to be a refreshing read!

Likes: Personally, I am a fan of classical remakes and found this book to have a very interesting and unique concept. I am even tempted to check out Anne and Rick's story in the series!

Dislikes: Lizzie could occasionally come off as fair or polite (ex. toward her newspaper staff) but mostly all her good traits were overshadowed by her dogmatic/unwavering actions and her dramatic egotistical mannerisms...almost annoyingly so! Sadly, she was not a very likable character for me and I did no find myself warming up to her tough outer shell throughout much of the book either. Basically, she was just too over the top for my taste!

Chapter One/Paragraph One: "Lizzie dragged her red suitcase behind her as she weaved through the crowded hallway searching for Ellie in the chaos that was the first day back in California at Jane Austen Academy. Or Jasta --rhymes with pasta-- as she and her friends affectionately called it, although affection had not been the sentiment of the day."

Favorite { Scene, Character or Setting }: Scene

"Want to play a game to make the ride go faster?" Edward asked.
"Yes!" Lizzie sat straight in her seat. "How about Truth or Dare?"
"Um, I was thinking more like Twenty Questions...or I Spy...."
"I'll go first," Lizzie said. "Dare."
"Um..." Edward's eyes darted around nervously. "I dare you to stick your head out the window?"
"No! I don't want to, which means we're back to truth, and I get to ask you a question."
"I don't think that's how--"
"Why is Rick avoiding Anne?"
Edward glanced around nervously. "Are you sure this is how the game works?"
"Don't be a sore loser, Edward," Lizzie pushed on. "I asked a question, now you have to answer it. Those are the rules. Why is Rick avoiding Anne? And don't pretend you don't know what I'm taking about."
"I wouldn't say he's avoiding her."
"Don't make me break out a thesaurus, Edward."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Modern Day Pride & Prejudice? 21. April 2012
Von Angieleigh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Fall For You reminds me of another book I read recently where the main character was self-absorbed and only cared about herself and how everything she did would get her into the college of choice. The only difference is, Lizzie learned to adapt and accept change. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Lizzie grow as the story progressed; too often it takes about a hundred pages or so until the main character finally opens his//her eyes and realize that they've been an idiot all along.

A Goodreads friend told me that she liked this book, but that it was too short. I agree with her, but I'm also looking forward to the sequel. One thing I really liked the most is that for the most part, everything gets resolved by the end so that there are no big cliffhangers, which is different from other series and sets apart Fall For You.

I look forward to getting to know Lizzie, Dante, Anne, Rich, Emma, Ellie, Georgiana and Edward a lot better as the series continues. Hopefully Ms. Berg disappears sometime in the future as that woman annoys me.

I recommend this for anyone who likes YA, wants a quick, enjoyable read, and who enjoys light-reading. Hopefully you've read some of Jane Austen's works as apparently, Ms. Gray is a modern-day Austen. Now I have to dig through the classics and find Pride and Prejudice and finally read it. Yeah, yeah...I know.

4.0 von 5 Sternen As a true Austen fan, I really enjoyed this book 17. April 2012
Von Anne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this book a lot. I'm a true Austen fan. More precisely a Pride and Prejudice fan. I read many, many variations, twists, modernisation, sequels...

This is the first modernisation I felt was true to the story and the characters. I enjoyed making links with the original piece.

It is a good mix between a classic and a teen novel without being to "teenish". Teens and adults can enjoy this.

It is really well written and has a flow.

I would absolutely read more of The Jane Austen Academy serie.
