Emma gets a Hollywood-tinged, feminist update in this funny and fierce retelling of Austen's classic about a well-intentioned but tragically misguided matchmaker.

The summer after her first year of college, teen starlet Emma Crawford returns home to Manhattan to prepare for the role of a lifetime -and play career matchmaker to her friends. When Emma's search for an assistant leads her to the wide-eyed Brittany Smith, Emma sees the big screen in the girl's future. And because Emma knows best, she's sure that steering Brittany onto the right path is all she needs to do to make her a star - even if Brittany doesn't know it yet.

Emma's plans start to unravel, however, when professional soccer player Liam Price re-enters her life. Not only is Liam her former best friend's older brother, but he's gorgeous, smart, and has no problem pointing out the (totally exaggerated) flaws in Emma's plans. But as Emma comes in close contact with the darker side of Hollywood, she starts to question the glamorous world she's always known and realizes her role in it needs to change - if she can find the courage to go off script.

"A fun spin on Austen's classic." - Kirkus Reviews

"A new classic with swoon worthy romance, sharp social commentary, and a fierce Emma that you'll fall in love with - in spite of all her faults." - Kelly deVos, author of Fat Girl on a Plane

"A fun and fresh spin on the classic Emma, set in the modern world of Hollywood and featuring a cast of fully entertaining characters." - Christina June, author of It Started with Goodbye, Everywhere You Want to Be, and No Place Like Here
