Summary
What do you do when one youthful indiscretion threatens to derail the rest of your life? Aviva Grossman is a bright, ambitious Congressional intern with a promising future in front of her--until her Lewinsky-esque affair with a married Congressman comes to a crashing end. Literally. (She's in a car crash with the Congressman and that's how their affair makes the news.) After unsuccessfully trying her best to bounce back and restart her life, she decides that the best way to get the ultimate fresh start is to become someone else. But there are a few obstacles: a lack of funds, a lack of privacy under the media's relentless gaze, and two tell-tale blue lines on a pregnancy test..

Summary
"Young Jane Young's heroine is Aviva Grossman, an ambitious Congressional intern in Florida who makes the life-changing mistake of having an affair with her boss who is beloved, admired, successful, and very married and blogging about it. When the affaircomes to light, the Congressman doesn't take the fall, but Aviva does, and her life is over before it hardly begins. She becomes a late night talk show punchline; she is slut shamed, labeled as fat and ugly, and considered a blight on politics in general. How does one go on after this? In Aviva's case, she sees no way out but to change her name and move to a remote town in Maine. She tries to start over as a wedding planner, to be smarter about her life, and to raise her daughter to be strong and confident. But when, at the urging of others, she decides to run for public office herself, that long ago mistake trails her via the Internet like a scarlet A. For in our age, Google guarantees that the past is never, ever, truly past, that everything you've done will live on for everyone to know about for all eternity. And it's only a matter of time until Aviva's daughter, Ruby, finds out who her mother was, and is, and must decide whether she can still respect her. Following three generations of women, plus the wife of the Congressman, YOUNG JANE YOUNG is a sympathetic, smart, funny, and very moving novel about what it means to be a woman of any age. Told in varying voices and emails and even a Choose Your Own Adventure section, it captures not just the mood of our recent highly charged political season, but also the double standards alive and well in every aspect of life for women"--
