The Lovereading4Kids comment
Rich in period detail and full of romance and fantasy, this is a delightful imaginary diary of Jenny Cooper which gives entertaining insights into what Jane Austen might have been like as a teenager. Jenny is the pretty, clever but shy cousin of the young Jane. The girls meet at a horrible boarding school but soon escape to the warmth of Jane’s family home where Jenny enjoys with Jane the bustling life of cards and games and gowns and balls and, above all, the delights of finding a hero.
