Jane Austen’s fourth novel is a sparkling comedy of 19th-century manners centering on the well-intentioned Emma and her sometimes indiscreet, often misapplied, and always entertaining efforts as matchmaker. Witty, intelligent, and spoiled, Emma takes it upon herself to arrange a suitable marriage for her poor friend Harriet. But despite her advantages, she is oblivious to the true nature of almost everyone around her—including herself—until at last she happily loses her own heart. Austen’s deliciously droll descriptions, ironic observations, and generous happy endings are Book-It fan favorites.
