The Disappearance of Janey Jones by Jennifer Fawcett
t's the morning of her grandmother's funeral, and Janey Jones can't get out of bed. She's lost her job, her boyfriend has dumped her, and she may be sliding into the same well of serious depression that swallowed her grandmother. Desperate and alone, she watches past and present collide as her room is invaded by a fortune teller, her doctor, her dead grandparents, her ex, her mother and more. Can she find a future beyond the darkness, a life worth getting out of bed to explore?
The Disappearance of Janey Jones explores the shifting mental landscape of someone with depression and questions the role of genetics, antidepressants, and self-control, not only for the person suffering from the disease, but for the loved ones around them. Year Printed: 2014
