    Hilarious Debut

    I cannot believe that this is Lianne Oelke’s debut novel. The synopsis is so unique! Jane Sinner has had to leave her high school following an ‘Event’, and she begins a program at her local community college to finish her diploma. She joins a reality Youtube show run by a fellow student, and subsequently gets into all kinds of trouble. Jane is one of the funniest characters I’ve had the pleasure to read about. This book is told in the format of Jane’s journal, so we get her unfiltered thoughts about her life. She is sarcastic and witty, and I was laughing out loud from page one. My favorite parts were Jane’s interactions with her imaginary therapist. I noticed a lot of growth of her character through these “therapy sessions”. At the beginning of her story, Jane Sinner is afraid of taking steps to improve her mental health. She resists her parents’ efforts to help her by joining a youth group, attend real therapy, or take antidepressant medications. However, as the story progresses, we get to see Jane come to terms with the Event that threw her life for a loop and changed the course of her high school and college experience. The side characters in this story were equally as interesting as Jane. I particularly liked Jane’s relationship with her younger sister, Carol. I would love to read a story told by Carol, as she seems to have the same snarky sense of humor as Jane. I also loved the other reality contestants. As a lover of reality competition TV shows, I mainly watch for the drama. Nice Try, Jane Sinner does not lack drama in any capacity. I would recommend Nice Try, Jane Sinner to anybody. It is a 2018 debut novel that is full of hilarious dialogue and an extremely entertaining reality show.
