School Librarian’s KS3 Good Reads

Posted: 30th March 2020

This is a fresh retelling of the Brontë classic, ideal for lower senior school pupils. The author has given Jane a boldness and independence in keeping with the original; the tale of a spirited heroine’s search for love, independence and belonging.





A fast-paced read set in Rome at the time of Emperor Nero, it weaves some Greek mythology – the tale of the Golden Fleece – into the world of the Roman elite. The plot is twisty and inventive, with touches of magic, mystery and mythology.
