Six top YA reads for Jane Austen fans

At the B & N Teen Blog, Jenny Kawecki tagged six top Young Adult reads for Jane Austen fans, including:
Enthusiasm, by Polly Shulman

Julie is used to her best friend’s crazy phases. But when Ashleigh gets hooked on Pride and Prejudice, she decides it’s time to find true love; unfortunately for Julie, this means volunteering for the local all-boys prep school’s play. Before long, they find the perfect specimen for Ashleigh’s quest for love. The only problem? Julie’s pretty sure she’s falling for him, too. With a blend of elements from Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and a few other Austen-y tidbits, Enthusiasm is perfect for anyone who has ever felt like the side character in their own novel—or one of Austen’s.
