Family & Relationships

A wholesome and light-hearted debut rom-com, cleverly reimagining Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice in a contemporary, Australian setting. The novel plays on Austen’s storytelling, transferring the major plot points and character traits into a modern story while still managing to be an original work. This narrative explores unhinged family dynamics, and a slow burning enemy-to-lover romance. The classic premise is transformed through modern themes, from working out what to do post high school to ideas of conservation. The story also covers darker issues around abuse in a sensitive manner. The Hollywood appeal paired with an idyllic Australia setting brings a modern twist to the classic and will attract the upper end of the young adult readership.
