Get used to the idea of spending a few hours questioning why you decided to read about these boring petty people. For more than half the book, millennials Remy and Alicia obsess over Jen, a beautiful girl with an uber-rich and pretentious boyfriend named Horus. They visit Horus’ house in the Hamptons. They learn to surf. Yada, yada, yada… A Touch of Jen makes the perfect sedative for a good night’s sleep for over half of its pages.
Then, POW!!! Weird stuff starts to happen. Really great weird stuff (that I don’t want to spoil for you). So, here’s is my advice. Skim the first half but don’t quit reading no matter how many times you may drowse off. It’s worth reading this book once you get to the wild ending. 3.5 stars!
Thanks to Little, Brown and Company and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
