46. Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin
Avviva Grossman was a Congressional intern during college who wound up having an affair with her boss, which became a political scandal. In order to outrun her past she changed her name, moved to a small town in Maine, and became a wedding planner. Now thinking of embarking on a political career of her own it seems like her past is coming to light. The story is told in a variety of formats including things like emails and one chapter of choose your own adventure story telling. It is narrated by Avviva/Jane, her mother, her daughter Ruby, and the Congressman’s wife.
For the most part I found it a pretty good book. I could have done without all the experiments in telling the story through different styles. I give it a 7 out of 10.
