In her remake of Jane Austen’s story of an eligible young woman with an overactive imagination, McDermid changes the protagonist’s fascination with gothic literature to supernatural-themed YA. The novel’s plot seems YA too when brought into the modern day — all chance encounters and does-he-like-me dithering. Worth a read for those wondering how Facebook might have fit into Austen’s net of social mores. B
