I finely finished She's Not There.

I finely finished Jennifer Boylan's book, She's Not There, and I cried for Melanie. Melanie was the one who shared a room in the hospital with Jenny when they each got there SRS. Everything went wrong for her, and the reader did not get to find out what ultimately happend to her. As I finished the book, I forgot about Jenny and all I could think about was the horrible support she got in her live and how bad things were working out for her during the week she got her SRS.

I wrote in an email to a friend "We don't have to worry about "Golden girl Jenny" she will do just fine, but I worry about poor Melanie. "

Then I Googled for information on Melanie and Jennifer. I found a neat interview with Jenny where she said:

JB: But yeah, it’s worth saying as long as we are updating the record here that Melanie has landed on her feet. Her family has become much more accepting and she is engaged to be married in December and I am to be one of her bridesmaids. I think she is going to be fine.

RB: Are you looking forward to the wedding?

JB: Are you kidding? It’s going to be great.

RB: Do you like weddings?

JB: I have been a best man, now I’m going to be a bridesmaid. And I hope to write a piece about it for my next book. link
I was so glad to read that the Melanie story had a happy side. I still want to know more, but I feel a lot better.
