Brave Jane Austen

Reader, Writer, Author, Rebel

Written by Lisa Pliscou, Illustrated by Jen Corace

So I am writing this from already being a HUGE Jane Austen fan. I love all her books, movies made from her books, and anything that resembles a Jane Austen novel. This biography did not disappoint. It’s a beautifully illustrated book with people in period dress and fun silhouettes, and also included excellent information about Jane’s life. I like how it points out how different life was for boys versus life for girls and how Austen felt about the injustices.
