Jane, the fox & me

I still remember when I first discovered Jane Eyre. I had to read it for sophomore English. I thought the beginning was so boring, I wondered how I would ever finish it.

But then I got to the middle: Thornfield, the mysterious Mr. Rochester, the strange sounds from the attic.

I was hooked.

So I was so excited to hear about Jane, the fox & me by Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault.

It's a graphic novel about Hélène, who feels like an outcast, but finds solace in reading Jane Eyre. This is one of the most beautiful books I've read. Everyone at my house is clambering to read it.

I can imagine if I read this as a tween, I would have breezed through those "boring parts" of Jane Eyre. 

Have you read any good graphic novels lately?
