“This book will not only thoroughly entertain everyone who reads it; it is the most immaculate takedown of slut-shaming in literature or anywhere else. Cheers, and gratitude to the author.”
–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This sly, exhilarating novel takes on slut-shaming . . . and manages to be hilarious in the process.”
—People(Book of the Week)

“Maybe with enough determination and love and support, women can choose their own adventures. They can start, like Aviva, by choosing not to be ashamed. In this life-affirming novel, Zevin doesn’t make that look easy, but she makes it look possible.”
—Ron Charles, The Washington Post

“It’s brilliant and hilarious, and it makes you wince in recognition — for the double-standard that relegates scandalized women to a life of shame even as their married lovers continue with their careers (and often their marriages), for the insatiable appetite we have for every last detail, for the ease and speed with which we stop seeing people as multilayered humans. It’s the sort of book that invites us to examine our long-held beliefs and perceptions . . . It has a heart. And a spine. It’s exactly, I would argue, what we need more of right now.”
—Chicago Tribune

“A smart, intersectional feminist tour de force.”
—Washington Times

“Another charming and funny winner by the author of the 2014 best seller The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry, about a woman at midlife confronting, along with her mom and daughter, a sex scandal from her youth. The perfect end-of-summer read.”
—AARP, The Magazine

“[A] warm-hearted and witty book about what it means to reinvent yourself because you simply have no choice but to do so.”
—BookRiot

“This book will not only thoroughly entertain everyone who reads it; it is the most immaculate takedown of slut-shaming in literature or anywhere else. Cheers, and gratitude to the author.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Splendid . . . A witty, strongly drawn group of female voices tells Aviva’s story . . . [Zevin] has created a fun and frank tale. Her vibrant and playful writing, and the fully realized characters taking turns as narrator, bring the story a zestful energy, even while exploring dark themes of secrecy and betrayal. Zevin perfectly captures the realities of the current political climate and the consequences of youthful indiscretions in an era when the Internet never forgets.”
—Booklist

“Presenting a sharp send-up of our culture’s obsession with scandal and blame, this novel pulls at the seams of misogyny from all angles . . . Likely to be a popular book club pick.”
—Library Journal

“Satisfying and entertaining.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin is funny, entertaining, clever and thoroughly enjoyable. It’s got politics, feminism, identity issues, mother- daughter relationships, friendships, and at its center, a sex scandal. Zevin certainly raises relevant issues, but she’s done it in such a charming way, never getting heavy- handed, giving the reader entertainment, humor and much to think about.” —Gila Wertheimer, Chicago Jewish Star
