Book Review: Darcy Swipes Left by Courtney Carbone

Darcy Swipes Left
By Courtney Carbone
Random House Books for Young Readers, 2016

What the book’s about: 

Courtney Carbone’s Darcy Swipes Left takes Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and sets it in a world where everyone (and I mean everyone) has a smartphone and is completely addicted to using it.

Texts abound, but so do references to various dating and social media apps. Emojis are everywhere, of course.

What I thought of it: 

Not a long 📚, but so very 🤣. Best if you’ve already read Austen’s 📖 🧐so you get the 😂’s. Perfect 🏖 📗.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at, chatting about books and the writing life at, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
