Staff Picks: Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin (Adult Fiction)

Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin

A smart, sassy and fun story that’s full of engaging characters like meddling mom Rachel Shapiro and her longtime nemesis Embeth.  Who’s Jane, and how does she fit in?  You won’t find out until halfway through this saga of bad decisions that lead up to and follow a headline-making political scandal in the Sunshine State. Young Jane Young raises timely questions about sensational journalism, shame, blame and equality and delivers its message with humor and heart.  A recommended title for book clubs.
