My Plain Jane; Cynthia Hand

My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies, #2)My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If you like Charlotte Bronte or Jane Eyre, or had thoughts about the juvenilia the Bronte sisters published, this book is for you. There are many references to the various Bronte books and characters (often as throwaway lines) as well as the family history which may elude those who haven't heard of Lowood or know who Edgar Linton is, but that may not matter (since I do know all that, it's difficult to assess how "in the know" a reader needs to be). The tongue-in-cheekness was generally amusing at times, but there were too many "Reader" references!
