Advance praise for “Young Jane Austen” from Nancy Gruver

“Gracefully written and illustrated, Lisa Pliscou’s Young Jane Austen offers captivating insights into Austen’s early years and her sometimes rocky path toward becoming a writer, in an era when this was decidedly not a ‘proper’ career choice for a girl. Teenagers especially will relate to young Jane’s challenges and struggles in finding her way — finding her unique voice — in life. This is a great biographical introduction to Austen, and to her novels as well. I learned much about one of my top-ten authors of all time!” —Nancy Gruver, founder and CEO of New Moon Girl Media, board member of the Brave Girls Alliance, and author of How to Say It to Girls
