First Impressions

Roaring Book Press, $16.95

Alice, the smart middle child in a blue-collar family, identifies with Mary, the middle child in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. when Alice enters Mary's world and makes changes in both their lives, she learns that first impressions aren't always right.

Marilyn Sachs says, "Jane Austen comforts me when times are hard, and she reminds me how funny, precious, and delightful this world is, as well as the people (or most of them) in it."
