Teen Book Club: Pudge & Prejudice, by A.K. Pittman

Thursday, March 18, 2021

"Pudge and Prejudice" is an homage to Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice," transported to the fictitious Northfield Texas High School in the year 1984. After moving to Northfield with her family, Elyse Nebbit faces the challenge of finding her place in a new school, one dominated by social status and Friday night football. When Elyse's effortlessly beautiful older sister Jayne starts dating Charlie Bingley, the captain of the school football team, Elyse finds herself curious about Charlie's popular and brooding best friend, Billy Fitz. Elyse's body insecurities eventually complicate her relationship with Billy, leaving Jayne and Elyse's exceedingly blunt friend, Lottie, to step in and help Elyse accept herself for who she is, pant size and all. Enrollment required. A link to the virtual meeting will be emailed upon enrollment. Pick up a free copy of the book at the Youth Services desk at either library.
