I have enjoyed all of the books that Anne Cassidy has written for teenage/young adult readers, but my favourite has always been “Looking for JJ”. It was also a great favourite in the school library, where it provoked many interesting discussions, but readers constantly asked “But what happened to her afterwards?” Well, now we know!
In this new story Jennifer has moved on. She has a new name (Kate) and is now at university, carefully hiding her true identity from those around her. She hopes to be able to continue with her studies and live the life of a student without her past being revealed yet again. But even if Jennifer/Kate can evade public and media attention she cannot escape the guilt she carries inside her and so she has huge decisions to make about her future. You don’t have to have read the original book to enjoy this sequel as all the information you need about Jennifer’s childhood, and her crime, is included. I have waited a long time to find out what happened to JJ and I have not been disappointed.

Sequel book to Looking for JJ. subject matter in first book was difficult to get into because of recent child killings so struggled with it at first. found a growing sense of sympathy for Jennifer as I'm sure a lot of children have led are leading the life she did. eventually saw how leading a life such as that could damage someone so badly they would do what she was accused of and convicted of. That said its a fictional story and the romantic in me feels that someone else has committed the crime for which she has taken the blame. I'm looking forward to the next one so I hope Ann is typing fast and furiously cos I can't wait.

Another nail-biting read, following the story begun in "Looking for JJ". Can Kate ever get over her past? Can anyone else ever forget it, or forgive her? Thoroughly recommended, especially for fans of Anne Cassidy.

I was super excited when I first heard about this sequel to the wonderful Looking for JJ, which was a favourite book of mine as a teen. However, when I thought about it a bit more, the doubts started creeping in. Looking for JJ was an amazing stand alone book in my head for ten years and I’d never really thought it needed a sequel. What if the new book was surplus and it tainted the original for me?

Luckily, this wasn’t the case. Finding Jennifer Jones had plenty of new and interesting material to cover, both in Jennifer’s past and her present.

When we last left Jennifer Jones, she was starting a new life as Kate Rickman. We join her a couple of years later to find out how her life is progressing now. She’s changed from when she was shy, quiet Alice. This grown up version gets drunk and goes back to houses with random guys and skips out on her probation appointments. She’s tired of a life of being checked up on and feeling like she’s always looking over her shoulder. And when a young girl is murdered in the area and can be linked to her, things only get worse.

I liked this grown up Jennifer, though I did question some of the choices that she made. It’s such an impossible situation for her though: yes, she’s done her time and has technically been released to live her life, but she still did a terrible wrong and has to report in to various people. While she still feels guilty about what she did, she wants to be left alone to live in peace. But she also questions if she deserves that. It’s a really complex situation, and I couldn’t really decide my view on it. While I always feel on her side, as a protagonist I’m fond of, it doesn’t erase the fact that she took the life of a child.

There’s a lot more revealed about Jennifer’s life after the act she committed.

It's a long time since I read Looking for JJ (which I loved) and I really ought to have re-read it before I read this. I felt disappointed.

If you can't remember all the story, don't worry there's a rehash part way through, done as a sort of flashback. This is set 9 years after the murder, and JJ has had several changes of name along the way. Just as she's getting her life back together, once again she's pulled in for questioning when another young girl is found murdered. She tries to escape by going to London and changing her own name but she makes the mistake of meeting up with Lucy Bussell from the first book and so the papers catch up with her again. Will it ever end - then she decides life can't go on in this way and makes a drastic decision. The book is left open for further books to follow. I hope she leaves it there.

I didn't feel this quite worked somehow, especially the ending, but it's readable.

An excellent continuation from Looking for JJ. In its predecessor, the plot revolved around the release from custody of 'child killer' Jennifer Jones and the furore this sparked. Now settled at University with a new identity, this instalment is more about her finding her own identity and what she is going to do with the rest of her life, living with her guilt and the consequence of acts done when she was just 10.

The sections that most interested me were the continuing flashbacks that pick up from the first book, at the time when Jennifer's friend's body is discovered, and what happens to Jennifer following this. Seeing how a child is treated and the sentencing process was fascinating, though I'd have liked even more detail.

Jennifer (now Kate) is fairly sympathetic in her student incarnation. She's trying to build a life, she's not forgotten her past (and a current missing child investigation brings it back home to her very suddenly), she's not off the rails but struggling to cope in many ways. Her own feelings for her mother and the hidden lies of the past that protected her mother are still present, and really frustrated me - I really needed Kate to see the truth about her mother and how it affected her own actions and also affected her sentencing. Even at the end of the book, I hadn't seen enough of this plot or Kate/Jennifer's mother - I want this storyline to be picked up on as it hasn't been finished, to my mind. No confrontation as yet.

Kate takes some actions I didn't like, but she does face up to her actions and knows she must continue to pay the price for what she did, no matter why it happened and how young she was. You have to admire her for that.

I found myself whizzing through the book.
