See Jane Run by Hannah Jayne Blog Tour: Review and Word Association Game with Hannah Jayne

Today I am featuring Hannah Jayne, the amazing young adult author of Truly, Madly, Deadly and the recenly released See Jane Run! We got to exchange emails back and forth to play Word Association game 

More about Ms. Jayne:

Hannah is the author of the UNDERWORLD DETECTION AGENCY CHRONICLES from Kensington books and the upcoming young adult thrillers TRULY, MADLY, DEADLY and SEE JANE RUN available from Sourcebooks, Inc. When she's not battling the demons of the Underworld or tackling a murderer at Hawthorne High, Jayne kicks her feet up in her San Francisco bay area home and attempts to share couch space with two enormous cats.

My Thoughts on See Jane Run:

The synopsis of See Jane Run initially reminded me of the classic The Face on the Milk Carton--a childhood favorite of mine so I was instantly drawn to this. With this, I was nervous too as I did not want to compare Ms. Jayen's book to Ms. Cooney's but I am relieved to say this one did not disappointment nor is it the same book duplicated--another relief. :-)

Riley finds a birth certificate with another girl's name on it--is it hers or is it someone else's? Did her parents steal her or is she adopted? Where does she belong? Then, on top of dealing with this, she cannot shake the feelings feelings that someone is messing with her head or watching her. There is intrigue, mystery and suspense woven into the story on almost every page. Added to the mix is a romance that develops between Riley and JD. 

While there is some predictable moments (but what mystery does not really), I do not feel that it detracted from the overall appeal from this book. This would be great for reluctant readers as I think it is fast paced enough to hold most reader's attention. 

Last Impression:

Filled with suspense, intrigue, mystery and romance this story will have readers racing to the end wanting to see if they guessed correctly.
