Jane Austen in Scarsdale

Chick-lit at it's best.   This modern retelling of Persuasion is an interesting take on the peer pressure that some society members put themselves through. 
High school is the backdrop for the character of Anne, who is working as a counsellor.  Her lost love Ben shows up after 13 years and unsettles her pride, hope and house. 

I thought this story failed only with how much information was presented on the SATs and could have given more on the characters themselves.
