There is something so refreshing about a book that makes you a laugh, while dealing with some dark content at the same time. Georgiana finds herself thrust into the glamorous world of the wealthy when she meets Frances at a party, and things just get crazier and crazier as the story goes on. It definitely made me think of Gossip girl but make it Jane Austen inspired (as the description says).
There is so much going on with this book. I legitimately laughed out loud several times, and I loved how vivid the characters were. There was some amazing representation in this book! I loved the romance, but I think the bigger focus was the friendships. Though they weren’t all good, Lex Croucher really did an incredible job of painting a realistic picture of money not being able to buy you happiness. Georgiana got to see all these rich people be miserable just like her, and I think we all need that sometimes.
This story wasn’t just about a boy, it was about finding yourself and overcoming the trials that life throws at you. Whether that be your parents leaving you behind or not understanding how to be happy surrounded by piles of money. I think my only issue with this book was that there were times where I felt like storylines got lost, because like I said, there was so much going on in this book. Nevertheless, it was a great read and such a refreshing historical fiction, romance, comedy, semi dark book!
