On the seventh day of YA book recommendations, I’m recommending a Pride & Prejudice retelling!
Love Pride and Prejudice? You’re going to want to read Pride! Ibi Zoboi’s Pride is such an excellent, diverse Pride and Prejudice retelling. It’s filled with the important topics of gentrification, class, race, and cultural identity that really align with Jane Austen’s social commentary aspect of her novels. I loved Zuri’s voice, snark, and poetry. I highly recommend listening to this one as an audiobook, as the narrator’s (Elizabeth Acevedo) flow really brings the prose to life. Pride and Prejudice fans will love this remix!
Find the book: Goodreads, Bookshop, IndieBound, Barnes & Noble, Amazon
