Young Jane YoungYoung Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thank you, NetGalley, for this ARC in return for an honest review.
Young Jane Young is a hit for Gabrielle Zevin from start to finish.
Jane’s story is a tough one, after her affair with a handsome, popular, married congressman is exposed and made public. Worse, Jane, really Aviva, kept a blog of the affair. Life went on for the congressman, forgiven by the press and his wife. Aviva found life again only by a legal name change and by fleeing her home town while pregnant.
Zevin tells Jane’s story with humor, tenderness and through the honest wide eyes of young Ruby, Jane’s daughter, whose first word was hilariously, “canapé.”
