If you loved Bronte's Jane Eyre, then you might want to check out this modernized version. I was really excited when I found this on the bookstore shelf - I'm a huge sucker for all things Austen and Bronte, and the modern retellings are usually very entertaining. This one was only so-so for me, however. The relationship between Jane and Mr. Rochester in the original was poignant and wonderful, but in this modern version the same thing kind seemed icky and stalkerish and I'm not sure why. The book is worth a look if you've read the original, but it's not really appropriate for middle grades even though there's nothing really graphic.
