Young Jane Young
Young Jane Young | Gabrielle Zevin
The author of the international bestseller The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry returns with a witty, moving novel about what it means to be a woman - especially in the Google age where no secret is safe for long. Aviva Grossman, an ambitious Congressional intern in Florida, makes the life-changing mistake of having an affair with her boss - who is beloved, admired, successful, and very married - and blogging about it. When the affair comes to light, the Congressman doesn't take the fall, but Aviva does, and her life is over before it hardly begins. She becomes a late-night talk show punchline; she is slut-shamed, labelled as fat and ugly, and considered a blight on politics in general. How does one go on after this? In Aviva's case, she sees no way out but to change her name and move to a remote town in Maine. She starts over as a wedding planner, tries to be smarter about her life, and to raise her daughter to be strong and confident. But when, at the urging of others, she decides to run for public office herself, that long-ago mistake trails her via the Internet like a scarlet A. These days, Google guarantees that the past is never, ever, truly past, that everything you've done will live on for everyone to know about for all eternity. And it's only a matter of time until Aviva/Jane's daughter, Ruby, finds out who her mother was, and is, and must decide whether she can still respect her.

I read this weeks ago and I forgot to post about it! Read for library #bookclub. I‘m currently reading her newest (tagged⬇️) which has me comparing the two. Young Jane Young is about Jane, bit of a Monica Lewinski-ish character, and the lives touched by her relationship with an older charismatic politician. Not everyone in book club enjoyed the various styles Zevin used—emails, choose your own adventure—but I liked it! We had tons to discuss!

BooknerdsLife Sounds interesting 🙂 Love her current book & writing so much I'm going to read some of her older ones too. 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Picture it: Monica Lewinsky meets “The Wedding Planner.” Young intern Aviva has an affair with a much older congressmen. Everything blows up in their faces, because duh. It took a bit too long to set this story up. Aviva‘s (aka Jane‘s) new life is where it shines. She‘s a mom, event planner, and all-around star of her small town. Not a fan overall, but I adored precocious Ruby. 👉🏼 Check out Zevin‘s newest out July 5. It‘s incredible!

Hooked_on_books Glad to hear Zevin‘s upcoming book is good! I loved AJ Fikry then was disappointed with this one, so I wasn‘t sure which path she would end up taking. Now I look forward to her new one! 5mo

I love this author so much and this book did not disappoint me. It was so well written and had so much to offer. At the heart it is about a scandal involving a young woman and a politician but it goes so much deeper. This is a story about what it means to be a feminist, truly and why it is important to keep fighting even when you have been beat down so many times. This book captured my heart and I‘ll remember it for a long time.

Funny #audiobook with great narration! College student Aviva becomes involved with a married congressman and her meddling mom will do anything to stop it. After it becomes public, Aviva moves to a small Maine town and changes her name to Jane. Her precocious daughter suddenly becomes curious about her missing father. I loved the creative style - using emails and a choose your own adventure parody. Fun from start to finish! #AudioMountTBR

It's cold and rainy here today so perfect for reading. 😊 This story is told from the POVs of four women affected by a political sex scandal: the mother of the young intern who had an affair with a congressman, the intern, her daughter, and the politician's wife. The daughter's section veered into melodrama and I almost bailed but I had loved the book to that point and I figured melodrama is only to be expected from a 13 year old ⬇️

bookandbedandtea ⬆️ so I pushed on. I'm very glad I did because it ended as strong as it started. I will say that I would have enjoyed a whole book from Rachel's perspective: do she and Andrew give each other another chance? How did she and Roz revive their friendship? I quite enjoyed her voice. 1y

Hey @Reggie Thanks so much for this highly entertaining book. I tore through it and smiled a heap - a bit of a buzz after some darker reads.

This is about a young intern who makes the mistake of having an affair with a congressman. However the book is split into five sections - four women and a young girl‘s perspective on life AFTER this event. Only at the end, after we‘ve experienced the repercussions, do we find out how the affair happened ⬇️

Centique It‘s short and sharp and sarcastic. I loved the older women‘s perspectives - Rachel the mother is so dry - I loved her. 😍 2y

At 22, Aviva Grossman finds herself the central figure in a political sex scandal. This story tells how this pivotal event changed her life and the lives of three other women connected to her. Each one tells their own part of the story. Clever, amusing, and thoroughly entertaining.

The story centers around Aviva, a young intern that has an affair with a congressman. We also have timelines from her mother, her daughter, and the congressman‘s wife. They are stories of strength and perseverance.

Aviva has a relation with a congressman and of course she‘s the one to blame when they are caught and all comes out in the open. She starts anew as Jane Young in Maine. The story is told from different POVs, which is quite nice.
It‘s the perfect book to read in the plane and kick off my vacation but it‘s a bit too fluffy and chicklit to my taste.

Really enjoyed this! The structure of having it told in 5 sections from different POVs worked perfectly for this story, & I‘m especially impressed that the author managed to write a super precocious kid who WASN‘T annoying AF like they usually are. The message isn‘t groundbreaking or anything but still important & necessary—that women often get treated far worse than equally “guilty” men, & how we have a twisted obsession w/punishing them. 4/5 ⭐️

quote

“Yes,” she said. “I think that‘s it, Ruby. You‘re very wise.”
“Thank you,” I said.
“How did you get so wise?”
“Books,” I said. “And I spend a lot of time with my mom.”

👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻💜💜💜

quote
alisonrose
Young Jane Young | Gabrielle Zevin

My mom says the reason people think she is their best friend is because weddings and events give people “the illusion of intimacy.” The “illusion of intimacy” means people “lower their inhibitions.” “Lower their inhibitions” means “people talk and drink and hug too much.”

quote
alisonrose
Young Jane Young | Gabrielle Zevin

How can I blame her for leaving? There was nothing for her in South Florida. These people ... know a few punch lines. They don‘t think they are talking about a human being. They don‘t think they are talking about someone‘s daughter.

I was attracted to this book because I absolutely loved "The Storied Life of AJ Fikry." This is a very different feel. It‘s a fun read, and goes very quickly. It reminded me of "Where'd you go Bernadette?" - it involves mothers and daughters, is funny and quirky, and is told in shifting perspectives and formats. I was looking for something light, but not too light, and this fit the bill perfectly.

Ashley85 I‘m enjoying this one as well! And I loved A.J. Fikry! 4y
