The DyersJonah Lisa Dyer & Stephen Dyer
A humorous, contemporary YA novel published by Viking/Penguin
Soccer star Megan McKnight thought she knew competition.
That was before she became a debutante.
A soccer star with Olympic dreams, Megan can’t believe her socialite mother secretly entered her and her twin in the Dallas debutante season. Her bad attitude gets her on debutante probation: she’s got a month to prove she can ballroom dance, display impeccable manners, and curtsey like a proper Texas lady or she’ll get the boot and disgrace her family. Trading her cleats for kitten heels, Megan waltzes into a full schedule of dazzlingly extravagant parties. When she’s swept off her feet by the charming Hank Waterhouse, she starts to think being a deb might not be so bad (if only she didn’t have to contend with a backstabbing blonde and her billionaire boyfriend). But that’s before Megan finds herself in the middle of a media-frenzy-causing scandal, being humiliated in front of a dozen ten-year-olds, and getting punched in the face by another girl.
The season has begun…but the drama is just getting started.
A thoroughly enjoyable read, especially for fans of Austen retellings.
Austen fans will enjoy recognizing classic Pride and Prejudice moments and appreciate the message about staying true to oneself.
