On Sale: October 1, 2009
Featuring: Ellie Barnett; Sam Blaine
Add to Wish List
It begins one day in sophomore English class, just as
Ellie Barnett's teacher is assigning Jane Austen's "Pride
and Prejudice". From nowhere comes a quiet 'tsk' of
displeasure. The target: Sam Blaine, the cute bad boy
who's teasing Ellie mercilessly, just as he has since
kindergarten. Entirely unbidden, as Jane might say, the
author's ghost has taken up residence in Ellie's mind, and
seems determined to stay there. Jane's wise and witty
advice guides Ellie through the hell of adolescence and
beyond, serving as the voice she trusts, usually far more
than her own.
Years and boyfriends come and go - sometimes
a little too quickly, sometimes not nearly fast enough.
But Jane's counsel is constant, and on the subject of Sam,
quite insistent. Stay away, Jane demands. He is your Mr.
Wickham. Still, everyone has something to learn about
love - perhaps even Jane herself. And lately, the voice in
Ellie's head is being drowned out by another, urging her
to look beyond everything she thought she knew and seek
out her very own, very unexpected, happy ending.

Re: According To Jane
Nice to see that her own voice wins out in the end. Love is too precious to miss out on.

Jane Austen is almost busier now than
she was when she was alive and
writing. The spate of books involving
her, reviving her characters and
continuing her stories recently is truly
amazing. This sounds like an
interesting addition to the works.
