Hannah Jayne - See Jane Run

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.


I was waiting for this book, because I read Truly Madly Deadly one of Hannah Jayne's previous books and I loved it. This was a little disappointing after that, still I gave it three stars because it was (mostly) entertaining. 

The Storyline:

The story starts with Riley who wants to go to a school trip where students can check out Hudson college, but her parents won't let her go because she struggles with anxiety. Her best friend, Shelby, is going, so Riley offers to give her his father's old Hudson sweatshirt, but they have to search for it in her parents bedroom. Riley is little bit nervous because her parents hate it when she rummages in their stuff, they find a baby album which contains a birth certificate. They start to guess whose can it be and, of course, they suspects that maybe Riley's the girl on the picture, Jane Elizabeth O’Leary. With JD's (a boy from detention) help Riley will search for the truth til the very end, and will keep the readers guessing who is Jane and if Riley's parents are liars and/or kidnappers. 

The Characters:

Riley: Sometimes I liked her, but there were times when I couldn't take her. She was a little bit of a cliché, the average and really confused girl, who falls for the "bad boy", has a bestie and who can't trust in anyone.

Shelby: Sometimes she was annoying as hell... still I can give her credit because she was a supporting best friend who cared about Riley much.

JD: He was a complete cliché. I liked him, though, but according to the storyline he was a bad boy, but not once I felt like that. So, I'm asking, if Jayne didn't gave him features of a bad boy then why did she have to force this rule on him? Still he was super caring and totally lovable for a book where the focus isn't on the love story.

The parents: I could not like them. When they finally told the truth to Riley I wasn't sure about if it's really the truth or just another lie.

So all in all it was a pretty enjoyable book, with a lot of mistakes still I'm glad I read it (actually in one sit).

The story idea: 4/5
The realisation of the story: 3/5
The characters: 3/5
The cover: 3/5
All in all: 3/5

Favorite Characters: - 
Least Favorite: the parents

Recommend it to people who like mystery, suspense and thriller but don't have big expectation, because this is not that good.
