Synopsis

Jane Airhead by Kay Woodward

What's not to love about Jane Eyre? Gothic and passionate, it features the ultimate male hero - Mr Rochester. And that gives Charlotte a top idea: she'll look for a new Mr Rochester for her lovely mum. So when Charlotte finds the ideal man - dark, brooding and mysterious, he's PERFECT. But he also turns out to be sarcastic and rude. Does Charlotte really want her mum marrying him? Perhaps it would have been better if Mr Rochester had stayed between the covers of Charlotte's favourite novel...?

A humorous look at teen life and relationships. Bronteblog Jane Airhead unashamedly shouts 'read me

-filled tale ... littered with literary references. -- Janet Sims The School Librarian Kay Woodward has crafted a gem of a novel and a role model I'd have loved as a school girl. -- Sam Shepherd Daily Echo I love it! The funky cover is a dead giveaway to Charlotte's voice. She's a scream! -- Nayuleska Nayu's Reading Corner The text is laugh-out-loud funny and the story rattles along at a great pace ... you don't have to be fan of classic literature to enjoy this, as it's a great story in its own right. -- Chicklish Karen
