JANE, UNLIMITED

by Cashore, Kristin

An instant New York Times bestseller from the award-winning author of the Graceling Realm series a kaleidoscopic novel about grief, adventure, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices.

Jane has lived an ordinary life, raised by her aunt Magnolia an adjunct professor and deep sea photographer. Jane counted on Magnolia to make the world feel expansive and to turn life into an adventure. But Aunt Magnolia was lost a few months ago in Antarctica on one of her expeditions.

Now, with no direction, a year out of high school, and obsessed with making umbrellas that look like her own dreams (but mostly just mourning her aunt), she is easily swept away by Kiran Thrash a glamorous, capricious acquaintance who shows up and asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at her family's island mansion called Tu Reviens.

Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go." With nothing but a trunkful of umbrella parts to her name, Jane ventures out to the Thrash estate. Then her story takes a turn, or rather, five turns. What Jane doesn't know is that Tu Reviens will offer her choices that can ultimately determine the course of her untethered life. But at Tu Reviens, every choice comes with a reward, or a price.

Read Jane, Unlimited and remember why The New York Times has raved, "Some authors can tell a good story; some can write well. Cashore is one of the rare novelists who do both."

Absolutely addictive and fascinating, Jane, Unlimited is storytelling at its best. Filled with spies, stolen artwork, cute dinosaurs, new worlds, and delicious romance, this book is everything you could hope for and more than you can imagine.

Creation, compassion, and choice repeatedly emerge as themes in this ambitious, mind-expanding novel.

Review: Booklist

Adventurous readers will find it charming, thought-provoking, and utterly sui generis.

Review: Kirkus

As soon as I'd finished the first page of Jane, Unlimited, I was hooked, and the minute I finished the novel, I wanted to begin it again. The story held me enthralled with its unexpected twists, hidden identities, and secrets revealed. Once again, the brilliant Kristin Cashore has created a mesmerizing, unforgettable world.

Quote: Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of Better Than Before

This excellent, genre-bending title is a great pick for teens looking for something challenging to take them off the well-beaten path of standard YA fare.
