HOLA! I know, I know, before you all start yelling at me! I have been very lazy and haven't posted in around a month! I'm sorry! Okay, up next is Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte (The "e" has two little dots over it but I don't know how to do that). Jane Eyre is an orphaned girl living with her aunt. This book starts with her horrid life as a child, beaten by her cousin and treated like a servant. This theme follows Jane throughout the entire story, (the "mistreated" theme) but Miss Eyre encounters a few events that could lighten her life a bit. This book is Jane's rather memoir-like story of her tragic life, but it does have a happy ending, don't worry. I liked Jane Eyre, but didn't love it. I really wouldn't recommend this book to anyone under thirteen and maybe only mature teens, it is heavy. The story is engaging, but the fact that Charlotte Bronte based this on her own life is a little off-putting. In all, good book, wait until you are older. Two and a half stars.
