  • 4.5 starsThis is a modern retelling of Mansfield Park and part 4 of the JAA series. I loved this one too. I particularly enjoyed this take on Fanny - introverted, reticent, fiercely ambitious and a loner, but also a person of innate kindness and moral strength. Josh Wickham had another hat on, so to speak, (view spoiler)[this time as Henry Crawford, and I think it was very well done. One of the commenters remarked that Gray managed to put him into quite a few different (also villanous) roles and [...]


  • This review is also available on my blog, Bows & Bullets ReviewsFanny is an athlete. She's a runner and an academic and the school's new play should be the last thing she is involved in. But she is determined to help the other girls save the school and the only viable plan involves her joining league with Josh Wickham, the lead actor in the play. Can she get Josh to agree to help or will she be too distracted by Tran to concentrate on Josh?As with all the novels, we get the same basic bunch. [...]


  • Man let me say that Cecilia Gray has done it again. She has crafted a story from Jane Austen and put her own personal spin on it. This is a retelling of Mansfield Park and I have to say that Franny is such a strong character. She knows what she wants and she knows where she is going but what she does not expect to happen does and she handles it well.Fanny does not want to be at the academy but her parents have forced her to be there. So she decides she will bide her time and do whatever it takes [...]


  • As much as I enjoyed this book (despite not being a piercings and tattoo girl), I kept missing some aspects of the original characters. Fanny, the modern Fanny Price manifestation, shared some characteristics with her classic counterpart. She was hard working, dedicated, and loyal. She had a sense of right and wrong, though not as strong as the original. Attending Jane Austen Academy on a track scholarship, she shared her namesake's sense of not belonging among her more privileged classmates.Tra [...]


  • Suddenly You is number four in the Jane Austen Academy series. It can be read as a standalone but I wouldn’t recommend it. First off you will lose out on reading some wonderful, modern retelling of our favorite Jane Austen books. Second you will miss out on understanding the other students as well as the mystery that is going on at the school. This story is about Franny and her decision to help out the other students in saving Jane Austen Academy. Josh (who is a famous teen actor) is falling f [...]


  • I've really enjoyed the Jane Austen Academy series, the re-imagining of Jane Austen's heros/heroines and storylines, and Suddenly You is just as much fun. Suddenly You focuses on uber-driven, independent, competitive, over-achieving Fanny. I liked Fanny's growth, learning to trust her friends, to depend on other people, to speak honestly with her mother.Though it's a short book and quick read Gray manages to pack in quite a bit, romance with two very different boys, a bit of intrigue and mischie [...]


  • Just when I thought this series couldn't get better, it did. I found Fanny's story to offer up good character driven plot and a tough fought romance with some action in the ongoing fight to save the school. This fourth book was loosely based on Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. I say it again, but the author did a fine job translating that story into the modern era. Now of course, it was impossible to bring across some themes and of them all so far this one was probably the loosest of the retellings [...]


  • The best adaptation of Mansfield.Tran/Edmund clearly loving Franny before the end made me so happy. Fanny was not afraid to stand up for herself but she was still Frances Price to the core.The endingI don't think I can get over the ending. It was Mansfield, but, I don't know how to say this, almost better.


  • Definitely my favorite of the bunch, which was a major surprise given the source material. The characters and their interactions felt more fleshed out, and this was the only of the groups where I really felt the chemistry between the protagonists.


  • Un'altra epifaniaOgni volta che leggo una trasposizione in chiave moderna di questo romanzo, ho una sorta di epifania sul romanzo originale. Probabilmente dipenderà dal fatto che le autrici di retelling hanno una simpatia particolare per Henry Crawford, e nei loro romanzi tendono a riscattarlo davvero, mettendo la Fanny di turno dalla parte del torto.O forse è solo una combinazione che, nel trasporre in chiave moderna i personaggi di Jane Austen, questi assumano dei connotati più netti di que [...]


  • Suddenly You is the perfect addition to this short, sweet and absolutely swoon-worthy series. It has everything a YA romance fan could need: a bit o' drama, a lot of kissing and a mission to save what's dear to them. Cecilia Gray's fourth installment of the Jane Austen Academy series ties in wonderfully with the first four and will leave readers more than ready for book five!Fanny is stressed. She's constantly busy with keeping up her grades, earning her scholarship and trying to become the next [...]


  • Suddenly You SynopsisFanny doesn't want to be at The Jane Austen Academy. She intends to lay low until graduation when she can try out for the Olympic track team. She doesn't need friends or love. She only needs her running.But The Academy is in danger. In an effort to save it, Fanny joins forces with the friends she never knew she wanted. Suddenly, Fanny finds herself center stage in the middle of the Academy's biggest love triangle as the lead in the school playy this track star can't afford [...]


  • Fanny Sato is very competitive – and she has to be if she wants to achieve her dream of becoming an Olympic athlete. With the rumours of the Jane Austen Academy closing down, Fanny and the other girls try everything they can to keep their beloved school open. Even if it means focused Fanny trying out for the main role in the school play. With her once ordered life getting more complicated by the day, Fanny doesn’t need the extra pressure of being an actress. Gaining the attention of the lead [...]


  • I absolutely loved Suddenly You. This time we get to read about Fanny, the quiet, introverted Asian-American track star. When Fanny first came to the Jane Austen Academy she was NOT happy to be there. Her mom basically forced her to attend because she had a scholarship & it would help ease the financial burdens of being a single mom to a young woman with dreams of Olympic gold. But, Fanny wanted to attend a school with a premier track program in order to pursue her life-long dream, and Jasta [...]


  • Warning: I wouldn't call the info in this review spoilers but no guarantees that you would agree.One of the things I enjoy most about this series is that it's not just Jane Austen 's stories set in contemporary times. Each story uses elements from Jane Austen's stories but Cecilia Gray isn't afraid to make it her own. Suddenly You is Gray's version of Mansfield Park and I'm happy to say another successful adaption on her part. First, let me put all of your minds at ease and let you know that Fan [...]


  • I picked up Suddenly You right after finishing up When I'm With You. That ending had me so excited I just had to continue on with the next book and I have said this before but the Jane Austen Academy series just gets better and better. Suddenly You is Fanny's story. She is the track star, honor student, and awards winner, and loner. Yes she grows closer to her group of friends but Fanny still keeps many things to herself. I love how Suddenly You started, in the summer before high school was abou [...]


  • I'm a little confused about this book, to be honest. Actually, a lot confused. But thank you to Cecilia Gray and NetGalley for giving me this title for free to review!Things I liked:1. Fanny.She was SUCH a good heroine. While she seems more outspoken than the Fanny of Mansfield Park--with which I am only about half way done--her strong sense of morals is admirable.2. Fanny's relationship with her mom. It's extremely realistic.3. Tran.How the heck is Tran a nickname for Edmund? But no matter. He [...]


  • Une réécriture que j'étais curieuse de lire, attendu qu'elle concerne Mansfield Park ( toujours difficile à adapter à l'époque moderne au vu de sa "romance"). Dans cette version, je n'aime pas plus Fanny que dans l'originale Elle manque de caractère et se laisse facilement marcher sur les pieds tandis que Tran ( son Edmund) manque cruellement d'intérêt et de sex appeal (en même temps dans l'original). Cependant, j'ai trouvé un intérêt dans cette réécriture, grâce à la réutilisa [...]


  • Suddenly You is book four in The Jane Asten Academy series, but the stories can be discovered out of order and up till now I have read books 3, 5 and 4. Each installment is a contained retelling of a novel by Jane Austen and Suddenly You revises what it perhaps Jane Austen's least loved work, Mansfield Park.I was never a fan of Jane Austen at college and I have only read Emma and half of Pride and Prejudice. For me Cecilia Gray's novels have been an approachable way to encounter the 18th century [...]


  • One of my favourite things I like to read about is renditions of classic novels and one in particular is the renditions of Jane Austen's fiction. Suddenly You is a modern rendition of Mansfield Park and follows the main character Fanny Suto. Fanny has always wanted to be a track star and one day enter the Olympics. Her over-bearing Asian mother on the other hand wants Fanny to go off to Stanford Medical School and become a Doctor. So when Fanny is offered a scholarship to the Jane Austen Academy [...]


  • Received a copy via NetgalleySuddenly Youis the fourth book in The Jane Austen Academy Series which focuses on the competitive athlete, Fanny Sato. Not my favorite in the series but it was satisfying enough. I love Fanny's character, she's strong and is driven by her goal to be an Olympian track star someday. It feels SO good to be back at the academy and to see all the characters once again! Tran is a nice guy (although I'm not really into tattoos and tongue rings) and I enjoy his mischief and [...]


  • The Jane Austen academy series features a group of friends who are trying to save their school from an uncertain future. It appears as if the school will be demolished to make way for retail. This cannot be allowed to happen and the girls plot and plan to keep the school as a school.Each story focuses on a different member of the group. This story was about Fanny. She is focused. She has a goal to make it to the Olympics and her stay at the academy was only meant to be a temporary situation. Get [...]


  • This was my least favorite of the Jane Austen Academy novellas available now, and I'm not sure why. Maybe I read through them too quickly and got burned out? Maybe the enjoyment I got out of Kat's book made it difficult for me to enjoy Fanny (who is honestly my least favorite Austen heroine) and her adventures as much? The romance part of the story itself is pretty similar to Mansfield Park in that Fanny has a crush on someone she views as unattainable (NOT her cousin this time, hooray!) and she [...]


  • Suddenly You was a hodgepodge of spectacular goodness! I really enjoyed reading it.In this book, Gray flipped the script a bit on me, but I loved it. I adored Fanny and Tran's story! (But then again, Mansfield Park is a favorite, so it goes without saying that I would love this modern day interpretation.) All I know is that I was not disappointed with this book. Heck, I even felt for Josh in this one, and that's no small thing.It's so easy to love the characters in this series - the girls and th [...]


  • When I first began Suddenly You I worried about the roll that track would play in the book. I'm not an athlete by any stretch of the imagination and, for the most part, sports hold all of the excitement of watching paint dry for me. Fortunately, while running did play a part, it wasn't overwhelming. I was quickly drawn into the story and found myself liking everything about it: the strong characters, the distinct personalities, the engaging plot, even the writing style itself. It's no secret tha [...]


  • Reviewed onKathryn Cooper Writes These books really are fun to read. You could probably read the entire series in a week or two. I think there will be six books so I need to find the next two.I enjoyed learning Fanny’s story. I was interested in what she was about when she was mentioned in So Into You. This was a retelling of Mansfield Park which is a great Jane Austen novel. I had a difficult time understanding Fanny’s interest in Tran though. They were sweet together, but I couldn’t get [...]


  • I honestly cannot stop raving about this series enough: Austen + strong females + camaraderie + Enid Blyton-ness + fun = win, in my books. What I particularly like about this book is that the two leads are Asian - I am always happy when an author has good representation. I haven't read Mansfield Park before, so wasn't sure how similar the themes are (though looking at a summary, it's loosely based on the book), but still found it interesting. The chemistry between Fanny and Tran was very tangibl [...]


  • Fanny and Tran are adorable. I mean it, they're insanely adorable and I couldn't stop smiling at every single moment they were together.This is one of my favourite books of the series so far, it was such a fun read.Most notably I loved it for the relationship between Fanny and Tran. However, that isn't the only thing which grabbed my attention in this book.I thought that the use of characters was done in a really interesting way. Having Josh and Lucy playing the parts that they did, worked well [...]


  • The Jane Austen Academy series has quickly become one of my favorite new YA series. I work in education even though I am a nurse and I can easily see this series on the list for our middle school students to read. This mild YA series is a great modern day retelling of Pride and Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park They are a great retelling. Sometimes I am reluctant to even attempt to read a retelling especially a retelling of Jane Austen. But this series work [...]


  • Brilliant! I think I loved this book the most because you see all the other characters from the previous books. Plus Fanny is a stellar girl and a strong character! I felt like I could relate to her. She knows what she wants a goes after it. I would like to think I am that way too. This story plot and flow of the story were so satisfying. My kids kept asking why I was smiling and I would tell them bits about the story. I love that Tran is a big part of this story.One of my favorite parts is the [...]
