Description-

  • I know who you are.

    When Riley first gets the postcard tucked into her bag, she thinks it's a joke. Then she finds a birth certificate for a girl named Jane Elizabeth O'Leary hidden inside her baby book.

    Riley's parents have always been pretty overprotective. What if it wasn't for her safety...but fear of her finding out their secret? What have they been hiding? The more Riley digs for answers, the more questions she has.

    The only way to know the truth? Find out what happened to Jane O'Leary.

    Praise for Truly, Madly, Deadly

    "A fast-paced thriller." —Kirkus Reviews

    "What a ride! Full of twists and turns—including an ending you won't see coming!" —April Henry, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die

Excerpts-

  • From the book

    ONE

    "No, Riley. No way."

    "But, Dad, you haven't even heard-"

    Riley Spencer's father took a slurping sip from his coffee cup and looked over the rim at his daughter. "I said no. End of discussion."

    Riley blew out a sigh and crossed the kitchen, slamming the cupboard door after retrieving a coffee cup.

    "I hope you're pouring that for me," her mother said, coming up over her shoulder and slipping the now-full cup out of Riley's hands. "What's going on?"

    Riley fumed. "I can't go on the school trip-the school trip to look at colleges-and now I can't even drink a cup of coffee! It's like you want to keep me here in this stupid little fortress forever!"

    Riley's parents were staring at her, her father in mid-sip with newspaper in one hand, her mother with a glint of a half-smile on her pale pink lips.

    "Ry, we talked about this."

    "No," Riley said, "we did not talk about this. You talked about this. And no one said I couldn't drink coffee."

    Her father shrugged and went back to his paper. "Have a cup of coffee. Be five foot two for the rest of your life. See if I care."

    "We already had this discussion, hon. Your father and I said no." Riley saw her mother's eyes flash over the rim of her coffee cup. She gave a quick glance at her husband, and Riley knew she was shut out.

    Her mother sighed. "It's not like we do this for no reason, Ry." She shook a single pill from the prescription bottle and held it in her palm. "There will be crowds and a lot of confusion. Dr. Morley said it would be best to ease into a new environment."

    Riley glared at the tiny pill before snatching it up and popping it into her mouth. "What's the point of taking antianxiety medication if I never even have the opportunity to get anxious?" But even as she said the words, a tiny, singeing panic burned up the back of her neck. "It's not like I have a panic attack every time I leave the house or anything."

    "Riley..."

    She slumped, glaring through lowered lashes at each of her parents. She let out a low, dejected sigh before pushing around the cereal in her bowl.

    "Well, I guess getting straight As doesn't matter anymore anyway. If I can't even go check out a university on a heavily chaperoned school-sponsored trip, there's no reason to even apply to college. I mean, I don't want to go to a school I've never even visited. Even if it is my beloved father's alma mater. What if there are rapists and murderers surrounding the campus? I'd be caught totally off guard. I guess it's going to be Crescent City Junior College after all. I hear they have a pretty decent math department. I think it was ranked eighty-fifth in America's Best Junior Colleges. Eighty-fifth. That's not bad, right?"

    "Ry, we agreed that your dad and I would take you and Shelby to look at colleges over your spring break. What happened to that?"

    Riley looked her mother full in the face and blinked. "I have a thirst for knowledge that can't wait, Mom."

    A beat passed as her parents shared an is-she-serious look.

    "Oh, come on!" Riley moaned.

    "Ry, honey." Her mother patted her hand. "We need to make sure you're taken care of. We just like to know you're safe." She offered Riley a tight-lipped smile.

    "I'll be safe. You can call me every five minutes. You can shoot one of those pet tracker chips in the back of my neck!"

    Her father cocked his head, but he didn't look about to relent. Riley's lower lip started to quiver. She...

    December 16, 2013
    Jayne (Truly, Madly, Deadly) swiftly establishes a sense of urgency when 17-year-old Riley Spencer finds a birth certificate in her baby book that isn't her own. Or is it? The discovery leads Riley to reflect on her parents' odd behavior—they insist that she take an antianxiety pill each morning, are stiflingly overprotective, recently moved the family to a remote subdivision, and claim her baby pictures were destroyed in a flood. In crisp sequences reminiscent of The Face on the Milk Carton, Riley launches an extensive search to uncover the identity of Jane Elizabeth O'Leary, while sensing that someone is pursuing her. A missing child poster that appears on her computer and cryptic notes that show up in her purse fuel her suspicions. Despite the harrowing circumstances Riley faces once she learns more about her family's past, her biggest obstacle lies in overcoming her own apprehension. The weightiest elements of the novel are Riley's growing sense of independence and her process of staking claim to her identity. Ages 13–up. Agent: Amberly Finarelli, Andrea Hurst Literary Agency.

    The teen years are a time of self-discovery and exploration. For Riley Spencer, this is harder than for most, because she's no longer sure of anything...even her name. Riley's parents have always been somewhat overprotective, especially since they moved the family to a new house in an isolated new development. But Riley never really worried about that, until the day she finds a birth certificate tucked away in her mother's photo album, for a girl named Jane O'Leary. Who was this girl, and where is she now? Her curiosity mounts when she starts receiving mysterious notes tucked into her book bag that indicate that she herself might be Jane. Riley knows she needs to solve the riddle of who she really is and what happened to the baby Jane before she can get on with her own life, so she sets out to explore her history with the help of local bad boy JD. Little does she know that by starting this search, she's setting herself up as a target for more than one kind of danger. Suddenly, life isn't normal at all. The premise is certainly an interesting one, reminiscent of Cooney's classic The Face on the Milk Carton, and the characters are appealing. Unfortunately, the plot itself is thin, and the end will strike many readers as disappointingly contrived. Nevertheless, a quick, mostly entertaining read. (Thriller. 13 & up)

    Gr 9 Up-Riley Spencer's parents have her on an ultra-tight leash and insist on monitoring her every move. When they finally relent and permit her to attend an overnight college visit with classmates and many chaperones, Riley and her friend Shelby are ecstatic. They plan to see Hudson University, where Riley's dad matriculated. As the girls rummage through cartons to find old Hudson shirts and memorabilia, they come across Riley's baby book. Strangely, it has no pictures of her prior to age three. Instead, it contains a birth certificate for "Jane Elizabeth O'Leary." Is Riley really Jane? Are her parents kidnappers? Riley begins receiving mysterious messages, and her sleuthing soon leads her into terrible danger. This suspenseful thriller is well paced with carefully developed characters and sharp dialogue. Sure to be popular in many collections, especially where Caroline B. Cooney's The Face on the Milk Carton (Delacorte, 1990) is loved.-Susan Riley, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY

    Grades 8-11 The birth certificate that falls out of Riley's baby book has another girl's name on itJane Elizabeth O'Leary. From there on, Riley's questions about her past begin to mount. Why are there no photos in her baby album from before her toddlerhood? Why have her parents always been so overprotective of her? And who is this Jane O'Leary? While in pursuit of answers, 17-year-old Riley unravels unsettling mysteries about her family, and soon it seems that she's not alone in trying to find the truth about herself and Jane. Suddenly, Riley can no longer trust her parents, her memories, or anything she ever thought true about herselfjust as she starts receiving haunting postcards and unnerving visits that threaten to push her paranoia over the edge. A captivating mixture of mystery and thriller, the latest from Jayne (Truly, Madly, Deadly, 2013) is suspenseful but not overtly scary. From the heart-pounding pace to the compelling puzzle at its core, this page-turner will appeal to fans of Caroline B. Cooney's classic, The Face on the Milk Carton (1990).(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
