Review: Young Jane Young

Young Jane Young Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from Penguin Random House Canada and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Young Jane Young is the story of Aviva Grossman whose past changed her future. As a young woman, she had an affair with a married congressman which became public and ruined her life. Aviva was marked with a big "A" and had very little hope for the future. While watching "The Wedding Planner", she realizes that her only chance to succeed in life is to become someone else. Becoming Jane Young brings her out of the public eye, but her past is always threatening to surface and she has a daughter to protect.

This is the second book by Gabrielle Zevin I have the pleasure to read. Gabrielle Zevin's writing style is light and educated. Young Jane Young was a quick and entertaining read. The relationship between Aviva and her daughter was a bit cliché and unrealistic at times. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the characters and the plot. The ending was great.
