Debating Darcy
Debating Darcy | Sayantani DasGupta
3 posts | 3 read | 3 to read
This Pride & Prejudice retelling brings New York Times bestselling Sayantani DasGuptas trademark wit and insight to her bright and funny YA debut! It is a truth universally acknowledged that Leela Bose plays to win. A life-long speech competitor, Leela loves nothing more than crushing the competition, all while wearing a smile. But when she meets the incorrigible Firoze Darcy, a debater from an elitist private school, Leela cant stand him. Unfortunately, hell be competing in the state league, so their paths are set to collide. But why attempt to tolerate Firoze when Leela can one-up him? The situation is more complicated than Leela anticipated, though, and her participation in the tournament reveals that she might have tragically misjudged the debaters -- including Firoze Darcy -- and more than just her own winning streak is at stake...her heart is, too. Debating Darcy is bestselling author Sayantani DasGuptas reinterpretation of beloved classic Pride and Prejudice -- imaginative, hilarious, thought-provoking, and truly reflective of the complex, diverse world of American high school culture.

Mehso-so

An interesting update to Pride & Prejudice, especially within the debate world. Lots of info on debating that I never knew! However, Leela was a bit too much for me and I wasn‘t really rooting for her.

For me, there were a couple of moments where it felt like the author's need to allude to classic lit affected the language to the point where it drew me out of the story, but overall, I loved this book! Leela and Darcy had that pull, and all the updates were so clever and fun. And the forensics stuff was fascinating! #yalit #yaromance
