Description-

  • A smart, funny, gorgeous retelling of Pride and Prejudice, starring all characters of color, from Ibi Zoboi, National Book Award finalist and author of American Street.

    Don't miss the audiobook, read by Elizabeth Acevedo, the beloved author and narrator of The Poet X, winner of an Odyssey Honor and an AudioFile Earphones Award winner.

    Zuri Benitez has pride. Brooklyn pride, family pride, and pride in her Afro-Latino roots. But pride might not be enough to save her rapidly gentrifying neighborhood from becoming unrecognizable.

    When the wealthy Darcy family moves in across the street, Zuri wants nothing to do with their two teenage sons, even as her older sister, Janae, starts to fall for the charming Ainsley. She especially can't stand the judgmental and arrogant Darius. Yet as Zuri and Darius are forced to find common ground, their initial dislike shifts into an unexpected understanding.

    But with four wild sisters pulling her in different directions, cute boy Warren vying for her attention, and college applications hovering on the horizon, Zuri fights to find her place in Bushwick's changing landscape, or lose it all.

    In a timely update of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, critically acclaimed author Ibi Zoboi skillfully balances cultural identity, class, and gentrification against the heady magic of first love in her vibrant reimagining of this beloved classic.

    Starred review from August 13, 2018
    “It’s a truth universally acknowledged that when rich people move into the hood... the first thing they want to do is clean it up,” begins this Pride and Prejudice retelling that stands solidly on its own while cleverly paralleling Austen’s classic about five economically challenged sisters. In the role of sharp-tongued Lizzie Bennett is Zuri Benitez, who loves her family, her Haitian-Dominican heritage, and her ethnically diverse neighborhood: Brooklyn’s Bushwick. She’s less excited about the prospect of the neighborhood gentrifying, but the arrival of the handsome, wealthy black Darcy brothers, who move into a newly renovated mini-mansion on her block, catalyzes a plot studded with detailed nuances of culture clash. An ambitious poet with dreams of Howard University, Zuri (the family’s “hard candy shell, the protector”) fights her attraction to the younger Darius as her older sister, Janae, is swept up in Ainsley’s attentions. Zoboi (American Street) skillfully depicts the vicissitudes of teenage relationships, and Zuri’s outsize pride and poetic sensibility make her a sympathetic teenager in a contemporary story about race, gentrification, and young love. Ages 13–up. Agent: Ammi-Joan Paquette, Erin Murphy Literary.

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Elizabeth Acevedo's bold vocals and lyrical style take this contemporary retelling of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE to amazing heights. For years Zuri Benitez and her four sisters have been watching their tight-knit Bushwick neighborhood succumb to gentrification. When Darius Darcy and his wealthy family move in across the street, Zuri and Darius make snap judgments about each other. Zuri is an aspiring poet, and her poetry maps her emotional journey; Acevedo--an award-winning slam poet--gives these introspective verses the perfect flow, displaying her mastery and skills as a performer. Overall, Acevedo's performance is soulful and rhythmic, bringing a tone of intensity and uncertainty to Zuri's struggles with saying farewell to her neighborhood and going after the future she desires.
