For fans of I Dissent, a picture book biography about the beloved, enduring writer Jane Austen and how she asserted her unique voice.

Smart and witty young Jane Austen has always been a storyteller, making her family laugh by poking fun at the popular books of her time. One day she decides to write her own, spinning stories inspired by the personalities of her friends and neighbors and the peculiarities of daily life she’s always found fascinating.

A Most Clever Girl follows Jane’s path from a relatable, clever young girl to the writer of books that would capture readers’ hearts and minds for centuries to come. As she hones her craft and finds her place in the world amid life’s joys and sorrows, she realizes that her writing will not truly be her own until she finds her unique writing voice. Young readers will be inspired to do the same.
