Claire’s new book, her first young adult novel, Epic Fail, hits the shelves on Tuesday, August 2nd! If you are a Jane Austen fan, run and get the book. It’s a YA re-telling of Pride and Prejudice set in a Los Angeles high school. It’s romantic, there are several moments when I was swept back to the gaga days of teenage love and not a single vampire or werewolf was present. After reading Epic Fail I felt how embarrassing and inappropriate Mrs. Bennett acted. I always mentally understood, by my era is not Austen’s so I never cringed. During Epic Fail, get ready to groan at the mother’s antics.
Kelsey first read Pride and Prejudice and Epic Fail immediately afterward. We went to a special mother-daughter lunch to compare the books and how one reflected on the other. Interested in nudging a teenager to read a classic? Pairing these two together, and throwing in a bribe of a special lunch date, is a perfect enticement.
