YA Fest at the Palmer Branch of the Easton Public Library, August 4 from 11-3 pm. More information coming soon, but it looks like there's going to be a great lineup of YA authors! http://www.yafest.blogspot.com/ 

"This richly satisfying tale of first and last love transcends its genre--not another breathless, fan-fiction take on a literary classic but an intertextual love letter... With evocative settings and compassionately drawn characters, this trilogy opener offers affectionate insight into the gifts literature gives readers. If treasured books have the power to change us, it's a two-way street. As we change, so does our relationship to those books and so, in a sense, we change them. A smart and rewarding ode to literature." --Kirkus Reviews (STARRED REVIEW)

"Bronte fans should appreciate this romantic, time-slipping reimagining that addresses finding a voice in writing and in life." --Publishers Weekly

"Mont has created a heroine nearly as engaging as her alter ego... Offer this title to any lovers of romantic classics, and they will eagerly await the promised sequels." --Jamie Hansen, VOYA 

"In weaving Charlotte Bronte's beloved tome into the life of a modern day teenager, Eve Marie Mont has managed to create characters that believably embody dual roles in both settings. A Breath of Eyre is a well-blended work of fiction--exceptional and unique in the arena of young adult fiction. This YA novel is a breath of fresh air for hungry readers looking for that special touch that makes a book stand out from the rest of the pack." --The NY Journal of Books

"[A Breath of Eyre] is a contemporary introduction to Jane Eyre for those who haven't read it and an insightful, fresh view for those who have. More than that, it's a chance for readers to literally step into Jane's shoes." --Bethany Fort, Booklist

"Eve Marie Mont’s A BREATH OF EYRE is a layered and lovely story, full of both heart and mind. I fell into this book in the same way Emma falls into Jane Eyre and I didn’t want to fall back out again. Ms. Mont is a smooth and beguiling storyteller who writes with a keen sense of both the ache and the awesomeness of growing into adulthood. Her transitions between worlds and times, between Emma’s reality and Jane’s, are seamless and gripping and propel the story forward with a kind of heart-hammering rhythm. A rich, wonderful, smart adventure, steeped in romance. More please."  --Lesley Livingston, award-winning author of ONCE EVERY NEVER (Penguin) and the WONDROUS STRANGE trilogy (HarperTeen).

"A captivating and heartrending read, richly layered and intricately woven. Like waking from my own mysterious dream, Emma's touching story stayed with me long after the final page was turned. Definitely one for the favorites shelf."   --Kelly Creagh, author of NEVERMORE (Atheneum Books for Young Readers)
