Review: Jane in Bloom was an interesting book. Going into it I kind of thought that it seemed a little too short, but it's length wasn't a problem because the story was told really well in a small period of time. It didn't take me very long to read this book. I read it in one night. Mostly because it's a quick book, but I did enjoy it. I liked how the plot sounded and I think that books that have eating disorders aren't really read that much. To me, eating disorders add something to the book. It made me happy to see that Jane focused all of her anger and pain into something positive and how she actually felt important to her family. Jane in Bloom was a good book but I also think that maybe it could have been a little better. You're definitely pulled into the book though, which I liked.
