Jane Airhead

Charlotte is totally obsessed with Jane Eyre! She dreams of living in a Gothic mansion in the Yorkshire countryside instead of going to grotty old Harraby Comprehensive. Unfortunately her love life is pretty much non-existent, except for the gorgeous Jack Burley, who doesn’t ever notice her. Resigned to her boring life for the time being, she decides to find a romantic Mr Rochester for Mum. Charlotte’s prayers are answered in the form of a dark, handsome new French teacher. He’s just the one, isn’t he? But Charlotte may have to rein in her imagination, and her aspirations of becoming a bridesmaid. For dashing Mr Grant is not nearly as charming as his sideburns seem to promise…

“Woodward has crafted a gem of a novel.” Daily Echo

“A really funny, engaging book, one that will make you smile a lot… perfect if you’re a Jane Eyre fan, and equally perfect if you aren’t!” Nayu’s Reading Corner

Jane Airhead unashamedly shouts ‘read me’ to fans of Cathy Cassidy, Chris Higgins and Jaqueline Wilson. A well written and fun-filled tale… littered with literary references.” School Librarian

  • I really enjoyed this book, and the occasional chunks of Jane Eyre added an unexpected but pleasant twist to the story. I think some of it was maybe a bit too serious but it was well balanced with humour and surprises. I love this novel – it is absolutely amaztastic!

    Also I really, really, really like the cover! I think it appeals to tweens and teens, and not a lot of book covers can pull that off.

    This novel is incredibly witty and funny and I think everyone will love it – I’d recommend this book for ages 9+ but, as I said before, I definitely think everyone will enjoy it!

    Big thank you to the author Kay Woodward for sending this to me – it was AMAZING.

  • I haven’t read this book and i was suprised when it came up as i searched’ Cathy Cassidy.

    However, i am glad it came up as it looks exciting. Although i have never heard of this author, i am tempted to buy this book. I delighted to see that children who read books by Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline WIlson (I haven’t read any books by Chris Higgins)As they are my two all-time favourite authors.
