Scones and Sensibility, by Lindsay Eland
Well, as weary as I am of the Jane-Austen-tribute books, this was well done, and really cute for about a 5th grader. Some very funny bits- the main character,Polly Madassa, worships Anne of Green Gables, Elizabeth Bennet, the whole classic crew, and tries so hard to speak like them, but it makes her almost incomprehensible to everyone around her. I would definitely recommend this to kids at the library who are looking to read up but aren't looking for heavy issue books.
