Lizzie Venetidis is confident in her decisions. Moving to Seattle with her sister Jane after she graduated from Stanford, for instance, was a no-brainer. Adult life, however, turns out to be more difficult to navigate than she expected.

What career should she pursue with a bachelor’s degree in Art History and no marketable experience amongst a tech-heavy job market? How responsible is it to drink that fourth cocktail while out with friends? And what should she do about Darcy—the aloof yet captivating guy she met her first night in town?

All the Things I Know is a one-mistake-at-a-time retelling of Pride & Prejudice, set against the backdrop of modern day techie Seattle. Full of wry observations, heartache, and life lessons, All the Things I Know shares the original’s lesson of ill-conceived first impressions and learning who you really are.

All I know is… I LOVED this book! An original spin on a beloved classic. It was brilliant!

I stare at the message, numb. The words are plain, but I can’t grasp any sort of feeling through the cold distance of technology. Instead, I feel a hollow ache somewhere outside myself. I know I should feel something, but I can’t connect to an emotion. I can see myself and all my decisions with hard realism. Here I am, hurtling into adulthood, confident in my own sophomoric wisdom, yet stagnant and still challenging the world to not be impressed with me. But who am I, seriously? I hardly know.
