A Most Clever Girl Book Cover

For fans of I Dissent and She Persisted — and Jane Austen fans of all ages — a picture book biography about the beloved and enduring writer and how she found her unique voice.

Witty and mischievous Jane Austen grew up in a house overflowing with words. As a young girl, she delighted in making her family laugh with tales that poked fun at the popular novels of her time, stories that featured fragile ladies and ridiculous plots. Before long, Jane was writing her own stories-uproariously funny ones, using all the details of her life in a country village as inspiration.

In times of joy, Jane’s words burst from her pen. But after facing sorrow and loss, she wondered if she’d ever write again. Jane realized her writing would not be truly her own until she found her unique voice. She didn’t know it then, but that voice would go on to capture readers’ hearts and minds for generations to come.

REVIEW

 A story about the childhood of iconic author Jane Austen.  I enjoyed learning about her childhood, her joys and her struggles, the reasons she created complicated women characters, and her quest to find her own unique voice. Woven throughout the story are italicized quotes from her books.  The stunning illustrations capture Jane and the scenery perfectly. Her playful, joyful youth shown in vibrant pinks, moves to a grayer hue as her life darkens, and then lush greens as she matures. A great picture book for young and old fans of Jane Austen. I am truly delighted to own this treasure of a book.
