Looking for JJ by Anne Cassidy

April 22, 2008

Seventeen-year-old Alice Tully is finally starting to feel comfortable. She has a boyfriend, a job, a place to live with a kindly woman, and plans to attend college. But things haven’t always been so peaceful for her—in fact, Alice hasn’t always been Alice. Six years before, her name was Jennifer Jones, and she was convicted for murdering her best friend. The British press had been fascinated by her story and now that she has been released they want to find out where she is, and who she has become. Alice isn’t sure what she has become, or what she deserves. Does she deserve to be happy after what she did? As Alice tries to protect her new identity her past comes back to haunt her. Looking for JJ by Anne Cassidy is a gripping and thought provoking thriller about who we are and what we can become.

*Librarians should be aware that there is some discussion of sex within the book.  Alice contemplates losing her virginity with her boyfriend and some passages describe their physical relationship. It is never gratuitous or too graphic but it is present.
