The story Jane Doe is set in Chicago and takes you through the everyday lives of three teenage girls Lyric Caldwell, Latrice “Tricey” Anderson, and Victoria “Vic” Brown as they deal with boyfriends, sex, peer pressure, abuse and teen pregnancy.  The three girls are best friends and they and spend every day consoling each other on each of their different issues. Lyric is dealing with peer pressure from her boyfriend Russell to have sex, although she does not want to. Victoria is living with her estranged father who often abuses her and does nothing more than provide a roof over head. Victoria is forced to work and pay bills if she wants to continue to have a place to stay. Latrice suffers with teen pregnancy and how to tell her over protective, controlling mother. Many of the situations the girls dealt with often reminded me of my teenage years.  I liked the fact that the story was written from the point of view of the girls which made it was easy to sympathize with some of their situations. Other than the situations I previously mentioned there is not much more to the plot. One problem I had was that these girls did not always seem like they were fourteen, the conversation and mindset often seemed like that of an adult, which was contradictory due to some of the situations they got themselves into.

Overall, I liked the way the book flowed and it did keep my attention but I was disappointed in the ending.  The three girls in this book were dealing with the same issues from the beginning to the end and it ended without any closure. I am assuming that there will be a sequel which readers will have to purchase to finish the story of Lyric, Latrice, and Victoria. 

What did you like about the book?
I liked the way the author wrote, the language that she used made it easy to follow.

What did you dislike about the book?
I did not like the ending of the book. I understand an author likes to leave the readers wanting more but I felt that the readers deserved a little more closure, some answers. The ending didn’t explain anything that happened with the situations the girls were dealing with the entire book.  I also was a little confused by the cover of the book. I think it could have related more to the plot.

What could the author do to improve the book?
Overall, I liked the plot of the book but I think the ending could be improved.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://www.SEORankingLinks.com"> ;Seo Plugin</a>
