Review: Jane In Bloom

Book: Jane In Bloom
Author: Deborah Lytton
Pages: 182
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
Cover Rating: 4 out of 5
Disclosure: I won this book from a contest on In Bed With Books blog


Jane and her sister have always been close, telling each other all of their secrets. However, Janes sister has been acting strange lately, refusing to eat and acting secretly and somewhat depressed like. However, Jane never expected Lizzie to not be with her on earth, living in the bedroom next to her own and sharing the same bathroom together, but it happens and Jane finds herself having to learn how to cope with the results and her feelings, and through the midst of it all, she finds out that she has a talent for photography.

This was a sweet but sad novel that makes you want to keep reading, in fact, I finished "Jane in Bloom" in one day. The reason that I rated it a 3.5 is because I felt as if there was something missing and like the plot should have had something more to it. Even so, I did enjoy "Jane in Bloom" and am looking forward to Deborah's upcoming novels.
