Fanny doesn’t want to be at The Jane Austen Academy. She intends to lay low until graduation when she can try out for the Olympic track team. She doesn’t need friends or love. She only needs her running.
But The Academy is in danger. In an effort to save it, Fanny joins forces with the friends she never knew she wanted. Suddenly, Fanny finds herself center stage in the middle of the Academy’s biggest love triangle as the lead in the school play…only this track star can’t afford to break a leg.
The last thing that the girls at the elite Jane Austen Academy need is hot guys to flirt with. But over the summer the school has been sold, and like it or not, the guys are coming. And it’s about to turn the Academy—and the lives of its students—totally upside down…
The Jane Austen Academy series are modern retellings of Jane Austen classics set at a beachside California boarding school.

Suddenly You is number four in the Jane Austen Academy series. It can be read as a standalone but I wouldn’t recommend it. First off you will lose out on reading some wonderful, modern retelling of our favorite Jane Austen books. Second you will miss out on understanding the other students as well as the mystery that is going on at the school.
This story is about Franny and her decision to help out the other students in saving Jane Austen Academy. Josh (who is a famous teen actor) is falling for her but her heart is falling for Tran. With her goal of trying out for the Olympic track team, dealing with her mom and helping her friends, this is to be sure a busy time in her high school life!
I actually would recommend this to anyone from a young YA reader to an adult who also enjoys this genre. These are relatively clean books that are short and totally enjoyable. I think they are a great way to introduce Jane Austen to readers who have never had a chance to read one of her delightful books.
(This book was received as an ARC from the author/publisher in exchanged for an honest review.)
Cecilia Gray lives in the San Francisco Bay Area where she reads, writes and breaks for food. She also pens her biographies in the third person. Like this. As if to trick you into thinking someone else wrote it because she is important. Alas, this is not the case.
Cecilia has been praised for “instilling a warmth and weight into her characters” (Romancing The Book Reviews) and her books have been praised for being “well-written, original, realistic and witty” (Quills & Zebras Reviews).
Her latest series of young-adult contemporary Jane Austen retellings was named a What’s Hot pick (RT Book Reviews magazine) and is a Best of 2012 pick (Kirkus Reviews) where it was praised for being a “unique twist on a classic” and offering “a compelling mix of action, drama and love.”
She’s rather enamored of being contacted by readers and hopes you’ll oblige at firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the following sites:
