It has lots of different mysteries and you are trying to work out in your head who is good and who we can't trust I think Riley and JDS relationship should have been talked about more tho.

The plot would fit in fifty words. The characters Are two dimensional at best. To be avoided by anyone who is older than eight.

A Phenomenal YA Mystery/Thriller! 5 Jan. 2014
By Stephanie Ward - Published on
Format: Paperback
4.5 Stars

'See Jane Run' is a fantastic young adult mystery/thriller that will have you guessing until the very end. It follows leading lady Riley as she discovers a strange birth certificate hidden in her baby book in her parent's closet. The certificate isn't for her, but for someone named Elizabeth O'Leary. Riley's world quickly spins out of control as she tries to find information on who Elizabeth was, what happened to her, and finally - the truth. Things keep escalating for Riley when she begins to get strange postcards telling her that they know the truth and who she really is. Is Riley really Elizabeth? If so, why have her parents lied to her all this time? In the end, Riley must learn who she can actually trust, and to learn to trust in herself as well, if she's going to survive.

I read the author's other YA thriller, 'Truly Madly Deadly', and really enjoyed it - so I jumped on the chance to review this one for Sourcebook's tour. I was definitely not disappointed. I'm happy to say that this novel exceeded any expectations I might have had and left my mind boggled until the end. The characters were all very well written, especially Riley. She's a typical teenage girl with overprotective parents, issues at school, and other normal problems. She also has panic attacks and severe claustrophobia - which I really thought was great that the author made the character flawed in these ways. Not much light is shed on mental illness - even ones like panic attacks and anxiety disorders - so I'm glad that the lead character had these problems and was still depicted as a strong person and able to overcome her panic attacks and fear. The other characters in the book were also very well written, which definitely helped with the mystery portion of the story. When Riley begins to question the truth about everything and everyone - all the little details become relevant or even incredibly important - so the smaller details that were included about the characters was a great addition. The plot was insane. I'm not sure how else to describe it. I was literally sucked into the story from the beginning and ended up reading it in one sitting. It starts with the birth certificate that Riley finds in her parent's closet and then just takes you on a roller coaster from there. There's actually a lot of different parts to the mystery and so many twists and turns that I felt clueless as to what the truth was half the time. I'd get a great theory going in my mind and then a curveball would get thrown into the mix and I would be completely lost again. I have to admit that I love thrillers and mystery novels and I love trying to solve them before the characters do. I figured out part of it with this book, but there were so many extra details and twists to it that I wasn't completely sure of anything until the very end. It definitely threw me for a loop more than once. Overall, this was a phenomenal YA mystery/thriller and fans of the genre should definitely read this one. After being blown away by these past two books, I'm definitely keeping a close eye on this author and what she'll come out with next. Very highly recommended!

Predictable, but still enjoyable. 21 Jan. 2014
By Amy - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm always up for a good mystery/thriller so this sounded like just the book for me. While I did enjoy it, I didn't totally love it. The story was interesting, and I liked how it tackled metal illness without solely focusing on it. The characters just didn't quite work for me the way I wanted though. This had plenty of thrill and excitement though, which was able to keep me interested and turning the pages. Also, I just have to add that the synopsis is very deceiving. She actually finds the birth certificate before getting a postcard declaring that someone knows who she is.

Riley was one of those characters that really just annoyed the crap out of me. I tried to believe that her paranoia was just part of whatever caused her to have panic attacks, but I just couldn't get over how easily she believed that maybe she was kidnapped or that her parents could do something that horrible. Yes, they are super overly protective of her, but I wouldn't think that would make someone automatically think the worst. She also is too quick to give into her best friend Shelby's suggestions about anything. Beyond that, she's reckless and kind of stupid. I get that she wants to find out the truth that she's seeking, but I wanted to smack her and be like, "Dude! Smarten up a little bit!!" Maybe I am too far removed from being a teenager now, and I would have made rash decisions too, but I don't think to the extreme that she does.

Of course, along with the mystery and dangerous situations, there is a bit of a romance. Shocker right?! The good thing about it was that it never really took over the story. It seemed a bit too convenient at times, but I really liked JD and wanted to know more about what he was hiding and who he really is. It's obvious that he has been misjudged and isn't really a bad guy or trouble maker that he seems to be. I thought that he was a great addition to the story and made me a little less irritated at the other characters like Shelby, Riley, and Riley's parents.

This was a thrilling mystery, but being the sleuth that I am, I was able to tie it all together rather quickly. It didn't take away from the enjoyment of it for me though. I thought that the fast pace was great, and was able to pull me through the book quite fast. Full of danger, mystery, and a touch of romance. This was a great YA thriller that will be sure to please many.

A thrilling mystery with a hint of romance! 16 Jan. 2014
By Literary Meanderings - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Synopsis: I know who you are.

When Riley first gets the postcard tucked into her bag, she thinks it's a joke. Then she finds a birth certificate for a girl named Jane Elizabeth O'Leary hidden inside her baby book.

Riley's parents have always been pretty overprotective. What if it wasn't for her safety...but fear of her finding out their secret? What have they been hiding? The more Riley digs for answers, the more questions she has.

The only way to know the truth? Find out what happened to Jane O'Leary.

- - -

Alright, the first thing I have to mention is that I think my opinion may be skewed because of the fact that—if the synopses I found on Goodreads and Amazon are correct—the sequence of events has changed from the ARC (which I have) to the finished book. This is the first time I have seen a noticeable difference. Just for your reading information. ;)

Now, the second thing I must say is that I read this book in one sitting! It's been at least a year since a book has gripped me that tightly! And that's sort of saying a lot considering how many mysteries I've been reading over the past months.

Hannah Jayne sets the mystery up pretty much right off the bat. Riley and her best friend, Shelby, are searching for something in her parents' bedroom when they come across Riley's baby book. Inside they find a birth certificate with the name Jane Elizabeth O'Leary on it. That, coupled with the fact that her parents are beyond strict with her and control every tiny aspect of her life, make Riley automatically suspicious. I mean, this is just within the first chapter! I am hooked immediately. From this point on, it's a whirlwind. The mystery keeps up with many possible outcomes to ponder. There is suspense and thrill, and plenty of creepy parts to make your tiny hairs stand on end.

A series of clues and odd happenings lead Riley to believe that she may be Jane O'Leary. But why would her parents change her name? Why would they lie to her for her entire life? Why are there no photos of her before age three?

"I have to find out about Jane... I have to know—if she's me."

When the truth finally comes out, you will definitely be surprised. It's not what you'd expect, and it wasn't what I was expecting. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with the ultimate outcome. It was a surprise, yes, but I was hoping for something else. *pout*

Along with the mystery and suspense is also a budding romance. It's not really the main focus, but Riley begins hanging out with the school “bad boy”—JD. JD is a distraction for Riley and she eventually ends up feeling more than friendship for him, and vice versa. She begins to confide in him and as the plot thickens, they become quite close. It's a sweet romance and I think it added a nice element to the thrill of the story.

Riley was a great protagonist. While she could be slightly melodramatic and jump to the worst conclusions, I understand that in a way. From the beginning, we're informed of Riley's anxiety. She takes meds for that disorder on a daily basis. I am not sure if the author's intent was to portray that Riley was anxious in hopes of making her reactions more realistic or just for another element of mystery or another thing to doubt about her parents. Anyhow, for me, it ended up making Riley's reactions to things much more realistic. I myself have anxiety (chronic anxiety, and I also take my daily pill) and I can tell you that I am notorious for overreacting and automatically going for the worst possible conclusion. It's in my brain, man. It seems to be in Riley's as well. ;) My ultimate point is that Riley is a complex character and I enjoyed her personality because I feel I can relate to her. She's cheeky and endearing, but also tough and brave.

All in all, this book is a must-read! See Jane Run is thrilling and mysterious, but also emotionally moving and romantic. It'll grip you and hold onto you til the very last pages. It'll make you laugh and cry, and make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. It's chilling and surprising. The mystery is well written, as are the characters and setting. The conclusion was a little lackluster for me, but could be outstanding to someone else. This book is yet another testament to how talented Hannah Jayne is with her spine-tingling mysteries! I definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy YA Mysteries.

Not her best 17 Jan. 2014
By Tonyalee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was a huge fan of Truly, Madly Deadly and when I saw that Hannah was coming out with another mystery/thriller, I couldn't WAIT to get my hands on it. She is an amazing author; creating such creepy, intense and intricate plots that keep you guessing throughout. So I had high expectations going in. Sadly, this book wasn't at all what I thought it would be. I was so disappointed.

My love for this genre has really grown over the past few months and I find myself constantly finding hidden clues, small details and over analyzing everything. I have gotten really good at figuring things out early on, if I do say so myself. In See Jane Run, I hadn't the slightest IDEA what the heck was going on. However, this isn't due to it being a well written mystery, which is what I would expect from Hannah. It is due to the fact that there was so many inconsistencies and so much back and forth, I couldn't follow anything.

First of all, Riley. I don't see how a "normal" good girl, would suddenly start to question everything about her life and sneaking around in one swoop. Sure, if you were to find something, like say a birth certificate with another child's name, then yeah. You are most definitely going to question it. But, in a matter of days, you are going to disobey and run to ANOTHER STATE? I didn't buy it. She was also a very unreliable main character. How can you be distrust someone so much but then turn around and speak highly of them? She was also made some really, really stupid decisions WITHOUT thinking it through. The best friend, Shelby. She was irritating and one of these worst friends, ever. She was feeding Riley all these far out there scenarios, then would basically tell her she was paranoid and on her own. Um, what? There were just too many conveniences for plot purposes and was annoyed because of this.

The mystery. Okay, this is a HUGE part of the book that pissed me off. When everything started to weave together, everything just kind of took a weird drastic turn. Who ended up being the "stalker" was so out there, I couldn't wrap my head around it. This person did a complete 180 from when we first met them. I didn't buy the change and the attempt to have this person look like an ally then to having them be completely psychotic. It was executed poorly. The conclusion too, was a little too far out there for me and I didn't buy that either. It wasn't realistic, at all.

At least, I don't think so.

I actually really liked the little hint of romance. I loved how it didn't take over the book entirely. It was cute and sweet and a nice distraction from everything else going on. Not to mention, it added a little intensity because you are obviously suspicious from the get-go.

My Peeve- Well, I kind of went there already. I didn't buy the whole scenario as a whole. There were too many things happening for convenience sake and the change of the "perp" was poorly written. Riley isn't a strong, levelheaded protagonist that I like to see in this genre. Also, why the hell was she taking pills?? I dont even know.

Overall- As much as I wanted and TRIED to love this book, I just couldn't. I am thoroughly disappointed, especially since I loved Truly Madly Deadly. I won't say NOT to read it.. but I am slightly hesitant on recommending. I am still looking forward to what other books Hannah brings us. I am hoping this one was just a bad seed.

Really loved this book! 3 Jan. 2014
By Erica Alyson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read Truly, Madly, Deadly and loved it so I Immediately pre-ordered this book. I am so glad that I did.
I love this book. I was kept guessing til the very end.

See Jane Run is about a girl named Riley who has super over protective parents. One day he and her friend Shelby are in her parents room where she is not suppose to be. In there she finds her baby book with a different birth certificate and she is unsure if it is her. If it is her did her parents kidnap her, who is she really.

This book is exciting until the very end. I don't want to give away too much, but I definitely enjoyed this book!!!!!
