Book Description Via Goodreads


Modern retelling/based on Sense & Sensibility.

The last thing that the girls at the elite Jane Austen Academy need is guys. But over the summer the school has been sold, and like it or not, the guys are coming. And they're about to turn the Academy—and the lives of its students—totally upside down…


Meet sweet and sensible Ellie who hasn’t met a problem her mom’s yoga mantras can’t fix. But when her parents threaten to pull her from the Academy just as her flirtation with the cutest boy in school heats up, will Ellie be able to keep her cool? 



Review
If you liked Fall For You, the first book in this series, then you'll definitely like this one! I like how each story is based on Jane Austen's Classic Novels. So Into You is based on Sense & Sensibility, and I think it was very well written. You re-meet characters from the last novel, but here we concentrate on Ellie, Lizzie's best friend. Here, we get to know more about her, and her situation that threatens her to leave the Jane Austen Academy forever! We read how with her intelligence, she can obtain a scholarship, but is that enough? And, will her easygoing friendship with Edward develop into something more? Ellie certainly does want something to happen, but what about Edward? Could something or rather someone prevent from Edward making a move? Hmm well you're just going to have to read and find out, and I believe you will really like it! I now cannot wait to read the next story in this awesome series! 

My Rating: 4.2/5
I say a mild PG-13 Rating.



Author Bio





Cecilia Gray lives in Oakland 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).

Several of her titles - including A Delightful Arrangement (The Gentlemen Next Door #1) and An Illicit Engagement (The Gentlemen Next Door #2) - have spent, in her view, a shocking amount of time on bestseller lists for romance, historical romance and regency romance in the US, UK, Italy and Spain.

Her latest release, FALL FOR YOU, the first in a series of young-adult contemporary Jane Austen retellings received a starred Kirkus review and 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.
