One of my all-time favorite books is Jane Eyre, so when I see any books that are a take off of that - I just HAVE to read them! When I saw April Lindner's Young Adult book, Jane, I was intrigued. It was a modern-day Jane Eyre story - and I did enjoy it. Jane, the young nanny, falls in love with her employer, the famous rock star, Nico Rathburn. The story really does stay true to the original Jane Eyre storyline, but the modern day additions are fun too. I think teens will enjoy this - and hey, if it intrigues them to read the original - all the better!!

I will caution that this is definitely older YA, the modern-day retelling brings with it scenes that are more intense than our young YA readers may be ready for.
