Reviews

"Gleefully anachronistic comedy."--Kirkus Reviews
"Full of twists, turns, and laugh-out-loud humor, this tongue-in-cheek feminist alternative history is impossible to put down. A thrilling alternative history that sparkles with wit and charm."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for My Plain Jane:
? "The authors' affection for their source material is abundantly clear in this clever, romantic farce."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
★"Fast-paced, well-plotted, frequently hilarious--as delicious as the finest French pastry."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"An uproarious historical fantasy that's not to be missed."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Praise for My Lady Jane: "Wacky, irreverent, and just plain fun. This fantasy-adventure politely tips its hat to history before joyfully punting it out of the way. An utter delight."--Booklist (starred review)
"A madcap story of ghosts, possession, revenge, and murder. Humorously blends fact with fiction and offers a gentler, more hopeful outcome for Charlotte, her siblings, and her heroine."--School Library Journal (starred review)
Praise for My Calamity Jane: "Witty and winsome, this rollicking tall tale makes its own rules."--Booklist (starred review)
"A delightfully deadpan deconstruction of a Gothic novel, with a ghost almost no one can see providing the commentary. Marvelously self-aware and almost too clever for its own good."--ALA Booklist (starred review)
