An emotionally truthful and visually stunning graphic novel about solace and redemption.

Winner of the New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book Awards This is the moving and uplifting story of a young girl called Helene. She is shy and awkward and taunted by the other girls at school for being overweight and for smelling and having no friends. Helene's only source of comfort is inside the pages of her book Jane Eyre. Here she finds a plain and strange woman for whom there is hope yet through compassion and love. As she reads on, Helene's own world gradually becomes brighter and perhaps her story will end well too?

Book Features:
  • A universally felt story, sensitively observed with awe-inspiring illustrations.
