It's a bit fluffy, but I really enjoyed this. I thought the story was sweet and a nice translation of Pride and Prejudice to a high school setting. Much better that Prom and Prejudice, in my opinion. Everything just felt so much more logical and real. This book may be based on a book written in Regency Era Englad, but the teenagers in this book actually acted like teenagers. I'm finding that what I like in a retelling of a classic story is a fresh take. Not every plot line has to be followed with rigid perfection. Not every character has to be included. So, Epic Fail doesn't feel like bad fan fiction, it feels like an original modern story with echoes in a long-time favorite. I liked it. A quick, fun read.
