After losing her parents in a tragic accident, surfer girl Janie Mason is forced to trade the sunny beaches of Hawaii for the cold fog of San Francisco. She’s never even met her new guardians, the Rochesters—an old money family who relish being pillars of high society. Janie feels hopelessly out of place in their world of Napa weekends, fancy prep schools, and cotillions. Nicholas is the only Rochester who treats her with anything resembling kindness—but he’s only six. When she strikes up a friendship with Daniel, a fellow surfer, it feels like things might finally be improving.

But something isn’t right in the Rochester mansion. There are noises—screams—coming from the attic nearly every night. Noises everyone else claims they can’t hear. Then John, the black sheep of the family, returns after getting kicked out of yet another boarding school. Soon Janie finds herself torn between this new “brother” and Daniel, who has secrets of his own. Just when she thinks her life can’t get any worse, she learns the truth about the Rochesters: what they’re hiding, what they want from Janie, and how far they’ll go to get it.


Why I can't wait for this one!

This is a Jane Eyre retelling! I've just discovered it, too!! First of all, I ADORE the original novel, which is my favorite all-time classic! Second, that cover is seriously eerie, and makes me want to open the book and read whatever is inside. Third, I find the idea of Jane being a SURFER, of all things, a very COOL one! And fourth.....a Rochester mansion in San Francisco sounds very intriguing indeed!  I'm GRABBING this one as soon as it releases!!
