  3. 3.5Overall, that was pretty lame But I still liked it Why, do you ask BECAUSE CHICK LIT And I am unashamed to admit that I LOVE chick lit It s pure brain candy, which is exactly what I need right now, because after Empire of Storms and college, my brain really cannot handle much hard coreness That being said, the love triangle was kind of annoying I didn t really ship anyone until the end That s how little I was attached to the love interests.However, SARCASM GALORE I absolutely loved the hilar [...]

  4. 5 fabulous starsSo far this is the best LaZebnik s book that I ve read It was cute, sweet, and funny I know I have this love hate relationship with love triangle and the love triangle in this book Alex Franny Harry was one of the love triangle that I love.

  5. Relevant and Fresh Takes on Jane Austen To date, Claire LaZebnik has published four refreshing and clever Young Adult retellings of Jane Austen s novels Epic Fail Pride and Prejudice , The Trouble With Flirting Mansfield Park , The Last Best Kiss Persuasion and Wrong About the Guy Emma and I sincerely hope she continues to write In this insightful and authentic retelling of Mansfield Park, Franny Pearson is a rising high school senior from a non wealthy, divorced family looking for a summer job [...]

  6. That just put me in the absolute BEST mood Such fun dialogue and a super de duper dy cute ship This is a twist on Mansfield Park than a retelling, but since MP is definitely least favorite Jane Austen novel, I m not mad at it There are a lot of significant changes to the character dynamics and one ginormous change in the end result, which again, I AIN T MAD AT view spoiler because Harry Cartwright is just the adorable witty banterflirtmuffin EVER oh my GOD marry me, and Alex Braverman complete [...]

  7. Guys, I LOVED this book I am familiar with the author s previous YA work, Epic Fail, but haven t read it And I have never read Mansfield Park, the Jane Austen novel on which The Trouble with Flirting is loosely based But I loved the short description of this book And I loved that it was a contemporary romance because I was badly in need of one I had been reading a lot of paranormal and dystopian YA when this book arrived in the mail and it was such a welcome break for me And The Trouble With Fli [...]

  8. I really liked Epic Fail, so when my friend asked me if I wanted to read this with her, I was than eager to give it a try And I was far from disappointed This was a really great read cute and fun Yes, it was predicable, but I really like the way LaZebnik always manages to make me smile There were some really great lines, and even the cheesy ones made me chuckle with delight.My only big issue was that Franny made such a big deal about her family being less fortunate at the beginning of the book, [...]

  9. MY OPINION This book was yet another one of those quick summer reads, despite the fact that it basically isn t summer any.Today will be an uber short review because I have loads of homework after this DAnyways, this book is about a girl named Franny who goes to work with her aunt at a theater camp of sorts that sounds SO AMAZING that I am jealous Anyways, she meets up with an old friend, as well as that friend s bro, who was her old middle school crush.At the camp, she makes a lot of friends and [...]

  10. Rating 1.5 starsIt took me a while to write up this review, I don t know, it s just this book made me pretty mad So yeah, you may find me ranting a bit in this review So finding that this book was a Mansfield Park adaptation had originally gotten me really excited, since there are scarcely any around and was in fact the first I d come across, but it ripped out a lot of the main themes and my soul , leaving behind a rather bland clich d romance I really did want to like this novel because I d rea [...]

  11. After reading Mansfield Park with some other bloggers, we thought it would be fun to read a modern YA retelling of Mansfield Park, The Trouble with Flirting Sadly, this show again why I don t read YA contemporary I m sure there are great contemporary books out there but usually I can t stand the main character If the biggest problem in your life is what shirt to wear to school, I just can t relate to you, even though at nineteen I m still fairly close to the intended audience for these books.The [...]

  12. OMG I seriously considered DNF this for a moment there IT IS SO FRUSTRATING I just want to state that I was fairly team Harry and did not care much about Alex from the begining, until Harry went off and probably got himself an STD from Marie my best friend s name is Marie sucks , not that Franny s attitude helped or anything, she s the QUEEN OF FRUSTRATION AND INDECISIVENESS That girl THAT GIRLAlex didn t even looked at Franny, unless Isabella was doing something else rather than him har har don [...]

  13. I remember reading Epic Fail when it first came out and I love Jane Austen retellings, so I was happy to give The Trouble With Flirting a try It was a very cute, fun book that told a great story The Trouble With Flirting centered around Franny s summer at theater camp While there, she reunites with her childhood crush, Alex, and also starts flirting with another camper, Harry Franny was an awesome main character I think all the great different characters definitely contributed to what made this [...]

  14. Gotta love Twitter After sending out an admittedly self professed whiny but whiny nonetheless tweet that I couldn t find something awesome to read after the Anne Bishop books, I got turned on to The Trouble With Flirting A light, fluffy, funny adorable retelling of Mansfield Park Was there any character growth Not really It was all about the romance and the love triangle but it was funny and sweet enough that it did exactly what I wanted from a story like this.And Harry is adorable Just saying.

  15. 4.5 starsInitial Impressions Super super super cute I actually almost didnt read this book because I had some kind of crazy notion that it would just be okay Boy was I wrong I loved the wit and the humor and swoooooning I really loved it Review originally posted on The Book Addict s Guide Why didn t you guys tell me how cute this book was I seriously almost didn t read it and or put it off because I was so unsure about it Firstly, it s a loosely based retelling of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen W [...]

  16. A modern retelling of Mansfield Park, I love Jane Austen retellings Fanny is spending the summer at Mansfield Summer Theater Program, but she isn t attending it, she s working as a costume assistant for her aunt She gets to spend time with her crush Alex Braverman, but he s focused on a different lady Then there is flirtatious Henry Cartwright who s notorious at breaking hearts, but what is a little summer fun romance right I love retellings of Jane Austen stories, but this one was a little of t [...]

  17. Wow, disappointing I really enjoyed Epic Fail and so was looking forward to this butwell I just didn t get some of the decisions she made with the plot Granted Mansfield Park isn t the best of Jane Austen s works but what makes it great is the sweet relationship with that Fanny and Edmond have and how things turn out for them in the end By changing that outcome I felt it changed the charm of the original story And really I didn t find that Harry really had any redeeming qualities I really strugg [...]

  18. Just like any teen lit, the story line is really simple, a girl who likes a guy who is her friend s brother What I like about this book is that you can t get the book off of you until the very end, because it s fun, thrilling, just like a teenager life I should applaud LaZebnik for creating such real characters for the book, so we, the readers, could really relate to each characters.

  20. So good And cute And sweet and fun I simply adored Harry from the moment he walked in One of the best feel good books in YA I ve read.I didn t know it was based on Mansfield Park I haven t read it either But reading this made me want to change that and go for classics now.

  21. Wow I wasn t expecting that, this book is great, funny and easy to read, in the end you ll not stop smiling and it ll make you happy

  22. First off I friggin love this book I expected it to be another cliche YA novel with some romance and miscommunication blah blah blah you get the picture But it was certainly a pleasant surprise Something that I loved about this novel is just how genuine it felt The relationships, the situations, and even the characters were all so realistic in how they made decisions throughout the plot.I found Franny to be a fascinating protagonist and was glad in that I could relate to her on a deep level I fe [...]

  23. Next up on the Jane Austen contemporary retelling chopping block The Trouble with Flirting After a good time with Epic Fail, and with this coming in with a funny and awkward premise, I was intrigued to see what this book would have offer, being a loose retelling of Mansfield Park and taking place at a theater camp Since my local library doesn t have any other LaZebnik books aside from EF, Things I Should Have Known, and formerly Wrong About The Guy, it s time for the Interlibrary Loan system to [...]

  24. Se Jane Austen fosse vissuta ai giorni nostriHo gradito moltissimo questa trasposizione Young Adult di Mansfield Park, in primis perch molte delle sue situazioni mi hanno fatto vedere il romanzo austeniano sotto una luce diversa Ebbene s , non so se la LaZebnik abbia avuto un illuminazione o se sia stato un caso che, nel tentativo di far vivere a personaggi dei giorni nostri le situazioni di Mansfield Park, questi abbiano messo in evidenza dei piccoli dettagli importantissimi che nel romanzo di [...]

  25. The story had been a really fun thing and so cute that I just wish to squeeze every character At some point, it got me snorting and go all annoyed at the characters because sometimes, they re just stupid Like me Really nice read, but it was okay whispers and i couldn t really get my hands off it even though i m passed bedtime

  26. I can t even explain what happened to me while reading this book I justI picked it up and I VERY RARELY Damn you, laundry put it down This was dramatic no pun intended , quirky, fun, and just pure addicting fluff of a summer read and I absolutely loved it all Happy reading
