Plain Jane

 

Plain Jane is the story of a forty something wife and mother who has kept a secret from her family for almost seven years. 

 

Jane has forever considered herself to be plain.  Her BFF Gaby is the exact opposite.  Following a night of countless margaritas, Jane and Gaby make a secret pact because that’s what friends are for.  Now Jane has less than a week to tell her family what she has done.  The secret is revealed over a four and a half hour time period while Jane is running a marathon. The story is told in Jane’s head.  Each chapter begins with a song that Jane is listening to while running.  The lyrics tie into the secret and many other stories that Jane tells about Gaby, her family, and mostly herself. 

 

Keep moving Jane!  You can do this!  This is Jane’s running mantra throughout the book.  The physical and emotional journey of running a marathon is continuously felt.  Jane’s sixty-four songs are listed at the end of the book.  It is a great playlist for those that run a ten minute mile like Jane.

Currently, Plain Jane is being adapted as a screenplay.
