Suddenly You by Cecilia Gray: 3 of 5 STARS YA Review

Suddenly You (The Jane Austen Academy #4) by Cecilia Gray. May 2013. Gray Life, LLC. Goodreads. Book 1: Fall For You. Book 2: So Into You. Book 3: When I’m With You.

Fanny 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 play…only this track star can’t afford to break a leg.

The last thing that the girls at the elite Jane Austen Academy need is guys. But over the summer the school has been sold, and like it or not, the guys are coming. And they’re about to turn the Academy—and the lives of its students—totally upside down… 

Dive into the fabulous, fun lives of six Academy girls as their friendships are tested, torn and ultimately triumph.


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 over his bad boy persona… and tongue ring.

As for side characters I really love Emma in all of these books. I think her story is next so I’m looking forward to that book. I recommend The Jane Austen Academy series to any of you looking for a fun modern retelling set at a boarding school. These would be perfect beach reads this summer.
