Charlotte is THE most adorable character; it’s hard to not fall in love with her. Full of the best intentions this romantic dreamer lets her imagination run riot, usually putting two and two together and coming up with five. I loved how she came to wild conclusions from almost nothing when it came to her Mum’s relationships, it reminds me of some of my own wild wonderings about my parents when I was (a lot!) younger.

I also really appreciated how Kay Woodward made Charlotte an unconventional hero...more

This book is brilliant - i love it! The whole "Jane Eyre" theme inspired me for my saying Keep calm and find yourself a Mr Darcy. I know Mr Darcy isn't from Jane Eyre, he is from Pride and Prejudice but she was looking for the perfect man. Charlotte is so unusal, but she is like me; loves to read 24/7. I love it how Manda helps Charlotte find her mum a perfect Mr Rochester but they get it all wrong. I can not believe though, that Charlotte didn't realise that Jack Burley luuuuuurve...more
Charlotte is a cute character! it was one of those cute and enjoyable reads. the one quality i didn't approve of Charlotte was that she brought Jane Eyre to the next level! how could she not differentiate between reality and and a fairytale?? maybe thats what brought the whole book together and made it ore enjoyable?

Charlotte obsessed with the book Jane Eyre decides to find a Mr. Rochester for her mom. But when she finds that supposed guy, turns out he's the opposite of what Charlotte thought. This was a fun read where you wonder how it'll end as Charlotte wonders if this guy is right for her mom or not. A light read that you'll like especially if you're a fan of Jane Eyre.
I'm too old for this kind of book. It's clearly geared toward young teens and doesn't hold the interest of an adult, like Harry Potter or the Hunger Games. Moreover, the Jane Eyre references are scarce. I did like a particular scene towards the end, during the school dance.
