Discuss Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin

Aviva Grossman, an ambitious congressional intern in Florida, makes the mistake of having an affair with her boss - and blogging about it. When the affair comes to light, the beloved congressman doesn't take the fall. Aviva does take the fall and her life is over before it hardly begins: slut-shamed, she becomes a late-night talk show punch line, anathema to politics. She sees no way out but to change her name and move to a remote town in Maine. This time, she tries to be smarter about her life and strives to raise her daughter, Ruby, to be strong and confident. But when, at the urging of others, Aviva decides to run for public office herself, that long-ago mistake trails her via the Internet and catches up - and inescapable scarlet 'A.' In the digital age, the past is never, ever, truly past.
