Plain Jane by Kim Hood
Release Date: 11/04/16
Now though, with her parents struggling to cope financially and emotionally, Jane’s life in her rural mining village seems to be a never ending monotony of skipping school, long bus rides to the hospital and hanging out with a boyfriend she doesn’t even know why she is with. Nobody really cares that her life is stuck in neutral; she is finding it difficult to care herself …
Ultimately, Jane begins to understand the real parts of her life that are good; her sister Emma’s chances of recovery begin to improve and the two sisters try to rebuild the relationship they shared before the illness took over.
