Author: Shannon Hale
Publisher: Bloomsbury Press
In a Nutshell: Already a gifted writer of five young-adult novels, Hale moves to the adult level with the enchanting and funny "Austenland," a valentine to Jane Austen-crazed women everywhere. New Yorker Jane Hayes has an obsession with Mr. Darcy (from Austen's "Pride and Prejudice"), so she jumps at the chance to attend a three-week immersion in "Austenland," where everyone dresses in Regency gowns and pretends to live in 19th-century England. Hale's clever books just get better and better.
