Description

I never have been in love;it is not my way, or my nature; and I do not think I ever shall.

Emma Woodhouse is certain of one thing: that she's an excellent matchmaker . . . even though she's never been in love. Emma dives into the game of finding an admirer for her newest project, Harriet Smith. But Emma quickly realizes she's in over her head and that she might lose everything if she keeps playing. Beautifully presented for a modern teen audience, this is the must-have edition of Jane Austen's timeless romantic satire.



About the Author
One of England s most beloved authors, Jane Austen wrote such classic novels as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Northanger Abbey. Published anonymously during her life, Austen s work was renowned for its realism, humour, and commentary on English social rites and society at the time. Austen s writing was supported by her family, particularly by her brother, Henry, and sister, Cassandra, who is believed to have destroyed, at Austen s request, her personal correspondence after Austen s death in 1817. Austen s authorship was revealed by her nephew in A Memoir of Jane Austen, published in 1869, and the literary value of her work has since been recognized by scholars around the world.
