Jane Austen meets Pretty Little Liars in this fresh, new young-adult series!
The last thing that the girls at the elite Jane Austen Academy need is hot guys to flirt with. Please. They need to stay focused on something that lasts much longer: an acceptance letter from an Ivy.
But over the summer the school has been sold, and like it or not, the guys are coming. And it's about to turn the Academy--and the lives of its students--totally upside down...
To say Lizzie and Dante are polar opposites is the understatement of the century. He's a snooty Exeter transfer with more money than Google. She's a driven study-a-holic barely keeping up with tuition. It's obvious that Dante thinks he's way too good for Lizzie. And Lizzie knows Dante is a snob with a gift for pushing her buttons. But things are changing fast this year at the Academy. And when Lizzie's quest to stop those changes blows up in her face, taking her oldest friendship with it, she has nowhere else to turn but to Dante, with his killer blue eyes, his crazy-sexy smile, and his secrets... Secrets Lizzie can't seem to leave alone, no matter how hard she tries..
Fall for you is an entertaining book that I've decided to read because I was in love with the simplicity of the cover. Being sincere I have to admit that this was not the kind of book I usually read but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
The story is about a female academy which had been revolutionized by the arrival of male students and new owners, who are trying to change the Academy's rules.
There was nothing I didn't appreciate about this book, it was funny, well-written, interesting and so womanish! I think the only thing that didn't make me love the book completely is that I'm not very addicted to this type of book: the plot, in fact, even if convincing, was way too simple. However I found myself really focused on Lizzie's thoughts and adventures and, for the last 4 chapters at least, I could not put the book down.
The fluency of the book makes the read very enjoyable and you get to the end without being tired or stressed by the fact that you have read too much. I loved following Lizzie's thoughts and impressions about getting in contact with boys, which was pretty unusual for an Academy of girls only, who had never had the problem to cohabit with the male genre.
I appreciated so much the fact that the author had dedicated a big part of the book to Lizzie's feelings because that's certainly the aspect that made the book more appreciable.
A big part of the girls who will read this book will surely fall in love with Lizzie's personality, a strong little girl who had never got in touch with love and who will not face his feelings until the very end of the book. I'm pretty sure they will also love Dante, the mysterious handsome boy. At the same time everyone of you will be curious to know more about Annie and Rick's past, and Georgiana's also.
In a few words I recommend this book to everyone who loves a simple, enjoyable read which is easy to read and to love. Especially, you have to follow the Jane Austen Academy's series if you are a fan of the famous homonymous author.
A big thanks to the author for offering a copy of her book.
