Cheeky "Jane Eyre" remake is a ghosty romcom mystery.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Amazing retelling of Jane Eyre!

I loved this book! It was a really cute retelling of the classic novel "Jane Eyre"! The only things I would note is that the book does contain a couple of uses of h--l, d--n, and b-----d. Also, this book has some violence, but nothing very gory. There are also a couple of kisses, too.
