An innovative re-telling of Persuasion, and not bad if you're looking for a fun read, but not without it's flaws (too much about the college application process, too little interaction between hero and heroine). I still want to read this author's other retelling, Jane Austen in Boca (which is Pride & Prejudice set in a retirement community).

Good story about college-bound seniors and what the job of a guidance counselor entails. Based on Jane Austen's Persuasion, which I wouldn't have realized if I hadn't read the author's notes in the back of the book. Nice romance though.

Okay, much more about her being a counselor than romance, or development of the two "Anne" and "Captain W." characters which I was looking for.

Anyone who has a child in high school NEEDS to read this book. It is easy to imagine which neighbor/friend etc. is which character in the book. Highly recommend it!

Book was a fun romp. Light references to Jane Austen, and colorful Jewish grandparents. A delightful read!
