DO NOT WANT! The StoryAs you can see on the cover this book is part of The Jane Austen Diaries, in that case it ’ s modern adaption of Persuasion with teenaged characters.4 years ago Amanda rejected the boy she oved because her popular friends thought he ha a loser and persuaded her to dump him.
This moment he left, she came into a meak and insecure girl who ets her family and friends walk all over her without even thinking that there ’ s everythin wrong with their behaviour.
Look, I ’ d nderstand if she as a chicken who ’ s fraid to stand up to people but she doesn ’ t ven ealize that she ’ s being treated like a doormat and that is where the problem is.
She needed Greg to tell her that she was lovel and to make her a confidence boost, which is indeed th ad thing BUT the moment he was gone, the confidence was gone too and only returned when he tarted to love her again.
In Persuaded, Amanda needs Gregory to protect and save her and I loo like her character never really grows or rather she doesn ’ t quit b a character/personality.
I assume he did it to com back at Amanda, but to be honest, it just doesn ’ t line up with his character to date a girl he should hate, but we ever see it, on the contrary it seems as if he genuinel liked Kylie.
It did ake me thin a little dr and fuzzy inside whenever Greg helped Amanda but I don ’ t now if it was because their romance was that great or because of the residual feelings from reading For Darkness Shows the Stars, another ( much better) Persuasion retelling.
Greg is for the most part very one-dimensional and you don ’ t always get to tell him that much beyond the fact that he ’ s rich, hot and a nice guy who ’ s protective of Amanda.
Like why doesn ’ t Amanda know most of Kylie ’ s friends?
We find out later that Greg ’ s 19 and another protagonis is 21, but they all seem like 16 year olds to me…- Corny dialogue: I had to skip whole pages at the beginnin because I just couldn ’ t stand the cheesy dialogue.The Rating★★☆☆☆I read a lot of fluffy young adult novels because sometimes you just eed a light, fun read where you don ’ t have to hink a lot.
