YA + Jane Austen = SWOON! This light, fun re-telling of "Emma" is one of Cecilia Gray's 6 Jane Austen Academy books and a gem of a find.
You know Emma. She loves playing matchmaker for her friends, and her scheme for this long weekend is no different than usual. Emma convinces Anne, Josh and Knight to spend the weekend keeping her company while her parents are away - aka - Emma plans to fix Anne up with Josh and send them off into happily-ever-after-land. Emma's best friend, and sometimes harshest critic Knight, knows that this isn't going to be a good idea. Things get complicated when Anne's ex shows up for the weekend and the 5-some weave in and out Emma's romantic antics. Along the way, as we all know from the original story, Emma realizes that she's loved Knight all along, but can't find a way to tell him. It seems like Knight and Anne like each other now, and Emma would never do anything to ruin her friendships. Should she keep quiet about her feelings or take a chance on love?
I highly recommend this quick, fun read. In fact, I plan to read the previous books on the Academy as well. I hope you'll do the same!
