I stopped and started this book too many times, because I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps I love Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte too much to have given this book a fair chance. It is not a bad book, but all it did was make me want to reread Jane Eyre! I will recommend this book to any teen girl who is looking for an intense and drama-filled book, because this story is intense and dramatic. The characters are fleshed out, and Jane's POV is very relatable to every girl/woman who never felt pretty or strong enough. I just can't say that I loved it. It was like drinking a Diet Coke when I really wanted a regular Coke. It tastes similar to Jane Eyre, but in the end, it just wasn't.
