Today’s title is “Mary Jane” by Jessica Anya Blau which is a story about a young girl who takes a summer job as a nanny for a local doctor’s little girl. Mary Jane is from a very conservative and straight-laced family but the doctor’s family is chaotic and full of rock and roll. The nominator says that this is technically a coming of age story, but so much more. It deals with class, racism, mental health issues, sexuality, addiction — so many things that feel relevant and ripe for discussion these days. Plus it’s all contained in a pleasant tale that will gift you a smile on your face.”
