Summary, etc.:
Living with her aunt's family in Mansfield, Massachusetts, for a few months before turning eighteen and starting college, Edie is torn between Sebastian, the boy next door, and playboy Henry.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 September #2
    Though she'll be on her own once she starts college, orphaned Edie Price will be spending her last semester of high school in Mansfield, Massachusetts, with the only family she has left: her preening aunt and absentminded uncle and their two daughters, forceful Maria and boy-crazy Julia. Their ostentatious wealth and sometimes-abrasive attitudes throw literary, understated Edie off-base. All she wants to do is keep her head down, secure a scholarship to college, and nurse an unrequited crush on Sebastian, the very unavailable boy next door, in peace. But Mansfield may have more in store for Edie. As her relationship with her cousins gains ground, area bad boy Henry Crawford begins pursuing her. He's nothing like Sebastian, and at first, Edie doesn't give him a second thought, but maybe there's more to him—and the rest of the town—than she first imagined. Retellings of Mansfield Park are far less common than some other Austen-style reimaginings, and this one winningly upholds the spirit of its source material. A well-fleshed-out secondary cast keeps this debut fresh. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
