Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman
“There is little more likely to exasperate a person of sense than finding herself tied by affection and habit to an Enthusiast.” Julie knows from bitter experience: her best friend, Ashleigh, is an Enthusiast. Ashleigh's current fancy is also Julie's own passion, Pride and Prejudice, and the heroine's quest for True Love. And so Julie finds herself swept along with Ashleigh, dressed in vintage frocks and sneaking into a dance at the local all-boys' prep school. There they discover several likely candidates for True Love, including the handsome and sensitive Parr. And Julie begins to wonder if maybe this obsession of Ashleigh's isn't so bad after all. . . .
Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman, is one of those romantic comedy type books that are short and easy to read. I still remember it, and I especially loved the characters. Julia was a girl that could still count the amount of kisses she's received and Ashleigh her best friend was obsessed with Jane Austen. It was easy to connect to the characters. And their hope for boyfriends were soon found through the boy's prep in their town. Especially when the went sneaking into a dance there and found some. But the boyfriends didn't come right away, so they had to do a little work, especially in their collaborated play between the local high school and the prep. This book was comedic, and hilarious. But romantic too, I always had hoped for another book to follow Enthusiasm but alas there is none right now. So if your looking for a short romantic comedy to read then this one would be a pick for you.
