Jane’s a very difficult girl. She’ll become a remarkable woman, an icon of the twentieth century, but that’s a long way off.
At seventeen, she crawls out of an irrigation ditch, bloody crowbar in hand, steals her Momma’s Ford and escapes a crime she may or may not have committed. In Depression-era San Francisco, she fakes her way into work as a newspaper copy boy.
She’s ambitious, a gifted liar, more than a little selfish. That’s how she survives. But even in the Great Depression, even on the brink of World War II, maybe survival’s not enough.
Follow Jane from Hooverville to the newsroom, from Wimbledon’s Centre Court, to the RMS Queen Mary, and back again.
She’s just getting started in Copy Boy and Tomboy, books one and two of The Jane Benjamin Novels.
