Laurie Faria Stolarz is an American author of young adult fiction novels, best known for her Blue is for Nightmares series. Her works, which feature teenage protagonists,blend elements found in mystery and romance novels. Stolarz found sales success with her first novel, Blue is for Nightmares, and followed it up with three more titles in the series, White is for Magic, Silver is for Secrets, and Red is for Remembrance, as well as a companion graphic novel, Black is for Beginnings. Stolarz is also the author of the Touch series (Deadly Little Secret,Deadly Little Lies, Deadly Little Games, Deadly Little Voices, and Deadly Little Lessons), as well as Bleed and Project 17. With more than two million books sold worldwide, Stolarz’s titles have been named on various awards list.

Bestselling author Laurie Faria Stolarz returns with Jane Anonymous, a gripping tale of a seventeen-year-old girl’s kidnapping and her struggle to fit back into her life after she escapes. Then, “Jane” was just your typical 17-year-old in a typical New England suburb getting ready to start her senior year. She had a part-time job she enjoyed, an awesome best friend, overbearing but loving parents, and a crush on a boy who was taking her to see her favorite band. She never would’ve imagined that in her town where nothing ever happens, a series of small coincidences would lead to a devastating turn of events that would forever change her life. Now, it’s been three months since “Jane” escaped captivity and returned home. Three months of being that girl who was kidnapped, the girl who was held by a“monster.” Three months of writing down everything she remembered from those seven months locked up in that stark white room. But, what if everything you thought you knew―everything you thought you experienced―turned out to be a lie?

I tend to enjoy when books switch back and forth with POV’s or times because you get background story as well as having a story to piece together. However because we know Jane survives, I wish we had a flat before and after as if we were with Jane when it happened and as she escaped instead of hearing about it later. I was still sucked into the story being worried for Jane but not as much as I could have been if I didn’t know she was going to escape and live. I prefered reading the “Then” parts of the book to the “Now” and I’m not sure why. I had some guesses about who the kidnapper but I wasn’t positive until we are told. All in all, the book was good even if it wasn’t my favorite.

Favorite quotes

I’ll be wishing on the brightest star in the sky tonight, hoping that we’ll always be this close

They all declare a safe space and tell me I can say whatever’s on my mind, but that’s only really true if what I have to say is what they’re prepared to hear. And so they furrow their foreheads, raise their brows, purse their lips, and shake their heads.

“Every heart can heal.”

An absence so deep, I can taste it on my tongue like the ashes of cremated bodies after a slow and painful death.

My tears have all been shed. If it weren’t for my writing, I’d have no voice either.

For now, I go through the motions of life, often surprised to find that people are still living theirs—

“Healing starts the moment we feel heard.”

You need to be kind to yourself—to allow yourself to be human.
