Description
From the author of the international bestseller The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry comes another novel that will have everyone talking.

Aviva Grossman, an ambitious congressional intern in Florida, makes the mistake of having an affair with her (married) boss. When the affair comes to light, the popular congressman doesn’t take the fall. But Aviva does, and her life is over before it hardly begins: slut-shamed, she becomes a late-night talk show punch line, anathema to politics. She sees no way out but to change her name and move to a remote town in Maine. This time, she tries to be smarter about her life and strives to raise her daughter, Ruby, to be strong and confident. But when, at the urging of others, Aviva decides to run for public office, that long-ago mistake trails her via the Internet and catches up—an inescapable scarlet A. In the digital age, the past is never, ever, truly past. And it’s only a matter of time until Ruby finds out who her mother was and is forced to reconcile that person with the one she knows.

Young Jane Young is a smart, funny, serious, and moving novel about the myriad ways in which roles are still circumscribed for women, whether they are young and ambitious interns; mothers attempting to steer their daughters through a male-dominated world; political wives facing an age-old knowledge that fidelity isn’t always honored; or young girls feeling bold about their many choices before they realize the gender restrictions all around them. Gabrielle Zevin captures not only the double standards alive and well in every aspect of life for women but also the mood of our recent highly charged political season.

Aviva Grossman, an ambitious Congressional intern in Florida, has an affair with her boss who is admired, successful, very married and blogging about it. When the affair comes to light the Congressman doesn't take the fall, but Aviva becomes a late night talk show punchline; slut shamed, labeled as fat and ugly. Aviva sees no way out but to change her name and move to a remote town in Maine. Starting over as a wedding planner, she vows to be smarter about her life, and raise her daughter to be strong and confident. When, at the urging of others, she decides to run for public office herself, she discovers Google guarantees that the past is never, ever, truly past. And it's only a matter of time until her daughter, Ruby, must decide whether she can still respect her.
