I commend Jane Devin's first book effort.

The Elephant Girl is a realistic view of a woman's life that actually makes readers look at their own lives and say "I don't have it so bad after all."

This woman's life is a life filled with low moments. Just about the time you think that things can't get any worse, they do. But...this woman survives. From one low-paying job to the next, from one disappointment to another, she makes it through, and just about the time when even she feels that she can't take it anymore, she comes to the realization that she is what she is and that's enough.

Jane Devin writes well, and if the success of this book stands on readers being emotionally spent after reading it, then it should be successful.

Throughout the book, I found myself wanting just one really good thing to happen to her or just one thing to go her way, but, like life, sometimes we get caught up in really desperate situations, and it's how we deal with those events that make us who we are.
