My Selection for Waiting on Wednesday: Jane by April Linder

Waiting on Wednesday is the super meme started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It gives all of us book lovers a chance to talk about what we're waiting to read. This week I can't wait to check out Jane by April Linder. It's a young adult book that's a modern take on an old classic--Jane Eyre.

According to the Publisher Weekly's review, Jane Moore's parents die in a tragic accident and she is left with only two unfeeling, absentee siblings to call family. Poor and alone, Jane quits college, interviews to become a full-time nanny, and because of her unassuming personality and total lack of celebrity awareness--quickly lands a job caring for the daughter of an aging, world-famous rock star who's about to make his comeback.

Jane is mesmerized by her new employer, Nico Rathburn. He's brooding, magnetic and an older man. Jane soon finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance, but a torturous secret from his past threatens to destroy what they've created.

I read Jane Eyre years ago as a kid. I also always loved to watch the movie when it came on TV. I'm looking forward to this. It sounds Gothic, atmospheric and windswept. Anyone going to join me?

We won't have to wait long. It releases October 11, 2010.

Toodles!
