Gabrielle Zevin checks so many thematic boxes with Young Jane Young: gender inequality, feminism, bullying, the morality of politics and truth, family dynamics, and more. It is completely of the moment and sadly ageless. Somehow she puts all of this together in a package that is weightless and entertaining. A great read with broad appeal.
“I've been waiting for a quirky, funny, thoughtful novel to follow in the footsteps of Where'd You Go, Bernadette, and behold: I have found it. I loved the vibrant female characters at the heart of this book. Told in four different voices, Young Jane Young is the story of Aviva Grossman, a young Congressional intern in South Florida who does the unthinkable: she sleeps with her boss. The book details the repercussions of that decision and examines the abuse of power that occurs in politics and in the day-to-day interactions between members of the opposite sex. Gabrielle Zevin has written something really smart and heartwarming, yet also incredibly timely.”
