Young Jane Young

51v3rmAF-OLI was excited to read Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin. I loved her previous work, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry, reviewed here. Young Jane Young is told in multiple ways: email, blog, and traditional story. Aviva Grossman is a congressional intern who has an affair with her boss and blogs about it. When this comes to light, she is vilified and to escape, flees and lives the rest of her life under an assumed name (Jane Young) in Maine. While the story was light, funny, and interesting because of the various modes of telling, ultimately, I didn’t really care for the characters, and the book was only ho-hum.
