Judging A Book By Its Cover: Pride and Prejudice (XIX)

This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!) I created this feature to showcase and admire the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t make so many wonderful editions!

Book Review: Pride

Pride
By Ibi Zoboi

My Edition:
Hardcover, 289 pages
2018, Balzer + Bray
ISBN: 9780062564047

Zuri Benitez loves her hood – the block parties, the corner stores, the way everyone knows and looks out for each other. When the rich Darcy family renovates an abandoned house across the street from her apartment and moves in, Zuri is immediately suspicious. She doesn’t need some rich family coming in and trying to change her neighborhood. But when her older sisters Janae starts hanging out with Ainsley Darcy, Zuri finds herself running into Ainsley’s younger brother, Darius. She doesn’t want to like or understand the polished, polite Darius, nor does she think he could ever understand her and her way of life. She might just find, though, that appearances aren’t always what they seem.

While YA romance is certainly not my genre of choice, no way was I passing up an own-voices, modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
