It is a truth universally acknowledged that Georgiana Darcy should have been expelled after The Incident with Wickham Foster last year – at least if you ask any of her Pemberley Academy classmates. But now she’s back for her junior year, and she needs to prove to everyone that she’s more than just an embarrassment to the family name. How hard can it be? All she has to do is:
- Rebuild her reputation with the marching band (even if it kills her)- Forget about Wickham and his lies (no matter how tempting they still are), and- Distract her big brother Fitz Darcy — helicopter-sibling extraordinaire — by getting him to fall in love with his classmate, Lizzie Bennet (this one might be difficult…)
With the help of her fellow bandmate, Avery, matchmaking ideas lifted straight from her favorite fanfics, and a whole lot of pancakes, Georgie is going to see every one of her plans through. But when the weight of being the Perfect Darcy comes crashing down, Georgie will have to find her own way before she loses everything permanently—including the one guy who sees her for who she really is.
