"When someone asks for a reading suggestion, "Enthusiasm "is the first word off my tongue." --Stephenie Meyer, author of "Twilight" "There is little more likely to exasperate a person of sense than finding herself tied by affection and habit to an Enthusiast."Julie knows from bitter experience: her best friend, Ashleigh, is an Enthusiast. Ashleigh's current fancy is also Julie's own passion, "Pride and Prejudice," and the heroine's quest for True Love. And so Julie finds herself swept along with Ashleigh, dressed in vintage frocks and sneaking into a dance at the local all-boys' prep school. There they discover several likely candidates for True Love, including the handsome and sensitive Parr. And Julie begins to wonder if maybe this obsession of Ashleigh's isn't so bad after all. . . . Fans of Jane Austen and Meg Cabot, and Maureen Johnson alike will swoon for Polly Shulman's charming novel.
