Darcy keeps reminding himself that Lizzy "is poor w/no connections, FML" and Scrooge's Ghost of Christmas Past says "hey, NMF /\_(ツ)_//." The contemporary language may make the stories more amusing for readers who find Dickens or Austen snoozey; others will find them patronizing AF ("As F*ck" per appendix). The intended audience won't need the included "411" on acronyms and emojis. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
