Publisher's Summary

Jane Knoll doesn't realize it yet, but life is about to take a daring turn. For the past decade, Jane's been able to recapture her sense of peace after years of being bullied. By day she edits marketing jargon, and by night she watches television reruns with her gay neighbor, Larry. She's comfortable. Then, after she meets her new coworker, Eva, television reruns are no longer an option. Too shy to get to know Eva in real life, Jane creates an online alter ego and starts to follow her on Twitter.
Face-to-face, Jane is nothing more than Eva's nondescript, clumsy coworker: a social catastrophe. But, behind the safety of her laptop screen, she becomes confident and empowered with purpose and talent. The two hit it off, and what forms is an undeniable creative union, one with the ability to positively change many lives.
There's just one major problem standing in the way, though. Can she fulfill her purpose and make a change in the world while living the rest of her life as an alter ego? Is she brave enough to reveal her true identity and risk squandering all she's gained by it?
This audiobook delves into the dramatic world of women in love, anti-bullying, sexuality, social psychology, and social anxiety.

awful listening experience lost the story

HORRIBLE TO LISTEN TO!! A perfect example of when the author destroys their own work by trying to do something they're not good at. No offence ms carr. remove this from audible and get someone who can do audio books well to rerecord.
the author really seems to be trying to read well but when you can hear every "s" she speaks it is very distracting. Between this and the mispronouncd words and lack of any kind of characterization. attempts at emotional emphasis that completrly miscommunicate the material it is simply not worth the auditory torture to try to engage what may be a much better story than this narrator is able to deliver.

the story is a little full of itself. too busy. too many descriptors and delays between progressing the story. but that may only be my impression from the truly awful reading of it.

Incredible! There's a bit of Janey in all us!

Powerful story that reaches to the hidden depths of the heart. It does not matter how beautiful you are, how popular, or how wealthy; no one is immune from fear, doubt, and insecurities. This story is amazing how it exposes the reality of how brutal life is but also how empowering true compassion, friendship, and love can be. This positive force is what gives action to our courage, it was an absolute joy to me that Janey's courage brought her to her feet to face her fear. A truly must listen/read, it will change thoughts, feelings, and life for the better. If nothing else it will warm your heart.. "Wink"
