YMMV / Janie

  • Alternative Character Interpretation/ Fridge Logic: Hannah. Why does she resent her privileged upbringing? From what Janie's parents said when they explained about Hannah to Janie, it seemed like Hannah was a deeply unhappy child. Whenever she tried to tell anyone about her feelings, the only answer she had received was being reminded that she had no reason to be unhappy: she had the perfect childhood that any other girl would have wanted. Hannah's problem seems more rooted in mental illness, so those well-meaning reminders of her wonderful life might have left Hannah feeling like if her parents had not been so wealthy and loving, people would have taken her problems more seriously.

  • Technology Marches On: At least half of the first book could be resolved if Janie could have just Googled herself.
