Synopsis: I know who you are.
When Riley first gets the postcard tucked into her bag, she thinks it's a joke. Then she finds a birth certificate for a girl named Jane Elizabeth O'Leary hidden inside her baby book.
Riley's parents have always been pretty overprotective. What if it wasn't for her safety...but fear of her finding out their secret? What have they been hiding? The more Riley digs for answers, the more questions she has.
The only way to know the truth? Find out what happened to Jane O'Leary.
Review: Riley Spencer is an ordinary high school girl. She and her parents have moved into a new subdivision, which makes Riley feel more isolated than ever. Her parents are already way too overprotective, not even letting her go on a school trip to visit colleges. When Riley’s best friend Shelby comes over, they find a birth certificate which isn’t Riley’s but belongs to Jane Elizabeth O’Leary. After searching online for anything about Jane, Riley starts getting mysterious messages and feels like she’s being followed. All Riley wants to do is find out who Jane is and what relation she has to her and her family. Yet the answers may be more than she bargained for…
SEE JANE RUN is a YA thriller/mystery with an interesting cast of characters and a secret which threatens to tear a family apart. I liked Riley, even with her panic attacks and paranoia, which were explained later in the book. I wasn’t a fan of Shelby and thought she acted like a twit instead of a true best friend. JD Davison is the bad boy who is looking out for Riley (and may want to be more than just friends) and I really liked his character. Parts of the story I was able to figure out pretty quickly, but there were other aspects which eluded me until the ending. I enjoyed the quick pace of the story which helped me be fully engaged. While I wasn’t a fan of some of the behavior of the characters, I did like the overall effect it had on setting the stage for Riley’s search. SEE JANE RUN is a suspenseful story in the truest sense of the word!
