The 15 Best Fiction Books of 2015 So Far


RE Jane, Patricia Park

Another clever classic-lit update that touches on modern themes, this one a spin on Jane Eyre that follows a young half-Korean orphan as she moves from being ignored in Flushing, Queens to nannying in Park Slope to finding her roots in Seoul. Self-knowledge is more important than romance as the prize that lies at the end of this heroine’s journey.— Sarah Seltzer
