I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend.
A touching tale for young teens (we loved it, too!). The author takes a few liberties with a few facts to make her story work, which she explains in an endnote, but stays true to the Austen family spirit and especially to Jane Austen's personality as it might have been. Mostly historically accurate. Lovely illustrations throughout by Susan Hellard. Told through the eyes of Austen cousin Jane Cooper. List $17.99. Hb, Dj. 2010. NEW. $10.00
