Reviews for Wish You Were Eyre
Booklist Reviews 2013 January #1
The book club girls are now 16 and reading Jane Eyre. Though boyfriend and work dilemmas have crowded the usual friendship issues the girls work through, the core of the series remains the same: girls with apparently little in common come together to support one another, overcome their differences, and read great literature with their mothers in a highly structured book club. Young teens and tweens who have grown fond of the girls will enjoy this visit with old friends, including those from outside of Concord introduced in Dear Pen Pal (2009) and Pies and Prejudice (2010), though little new is offered to entice new fans.

The overstuffed plot finds a French exchange student living with Megan; Jess going to national finals for a cappella; Cassidy's hockey team also going to nationals; and Becca's romantic life heating up. Meanwhile, the girls are reading [cf2]Jane Eyre[cf1]. As usual, minor dramas and misunderstandings occur. This series will likely appeal to fans far younger than the characters' ages of sixteen.
