Plain Jane based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A book that takes place over a marathon as a runner is trying to complete her first marathon and this book is formatted with her playlist featuring the song she is listening to and then the thoughts that are conjured from that song and what it means to her. One thing that I didn't love about this book that I don't love across all genres is hinting at a secret from page one. From the start of this book as Jane starts running she is hinting that her life will fall apart when a secret is revealed. Jane reminds the reader in each chapter that there is impending doom and it got a little old. I was glad that we didn't have to wait until the last chapter or the last song to learn about the secret, but we still had to wait for her to reveal it to her family and await their reaction. I just don't love being told that there is a secret and that the world will fall apart when it comes out. And does it . . . don't want to spoil. Overall I liked the concept and how it was structured, I would read another by this author because I think she has some creativity in how the book is written and presented, I guess I just couldn't enjoy this one due to maybe a little petty thing that I don't love when reading. If the above wouldn't bother you, I would say you would probably love this book.
