"This richly satisfying tale of first and last love transcends its genre--not another breathless, fan-fiction take on a literary classic but an intertextual love letter... a smart and rewarding ode to literature." -Kirkus Reviews (STARRED REVIEW)
"Bronte fans should appreciate this romantic, time-slipping reimagining that addresses finding a voice in writing and in life." -Publishers Weekly
"Exceptional and unique... This YA novel is a breath of fresh air for hungry readers looking for that special touch that makes a book stand out from the rest of the pack." -The New York Journal of Books
"Mont has created a heroine nearly as engaging as her alter ego... readers will identify with and care about Emma and her obligation to choose between her own story and one concluded over 160 years ago. Offer this title to any lovers of romantic classics, and they will eagerly await the promised sequels." -VOYA

It is so easy to get lost in the story of Emma. She is in essence a girl adrift. who literally finds herself within the pages of a book. The fact that the story that she finds herself in just happens to be one of the greatest stories of all time...all the better.
Readers may not like Emma when the book begins and it's not necessarily due to anything that she does. It is easy to be put off by her because she doesn't like herself. Not to worry though, she gets better. All it takes is a little lightening, some magic, and a reality shift of Austen proportions.
The best part of this book by far has to be the relationship between Emma and Gray. Though the author alludes to a Rochester-like relationship between Emma and her teacher, it is really Gray who fit the Rochester bill. He is tortured by his past and loves Emma in fear that she will never love him if she knows his past. (Rochester to the core.)
The thing that make these two so good for each other is that they are both wounded and each has just what the other needs to heal.
There are also some really profound moments that happen between Emma and her mother that bring the book full circle in a very unexpected way.
Please don't go into this read thinking that Emma is going to change the outcome of the story of Jane Eyre. This is not the case. She goes into the story and gets to learn from the actions, words and feelings of the characters. Then uses the experience to attempt to create her own 'happily ever after'.
Aside from the failed attempts at insinuating her English teacher into her life as more than a simple crush and the explanation of the magic; which has a tendency to be a be superfluous, this is a very good read.

Find out in this awesome novel and for those who are interested in finding out which literary character you are like, there is a quiz at the back of the book in which you total up the highest result of letters. For me , I got 5 each for A and B - so I am a mixture between Jane Eyre and Elizabeth Bennett and then on Eve's site you can do a quiz to find out who your literary soulmate is and I received Mr. Darcy :)
