​Now we get some flashbacks from Alice childhood and the environment there. She lived in a house with her mother, it seemed to be a pretty big house with two floors. I think it's close to the neighbors because the three friends always hanging and goes to each other after school or to the nearby lake. 

JJ (Alice) school is looking like ours I guess, we don't get to know so much about the environmen there.

​I think it´s hard to connect the novel to real life-events or another novel or movie.  I mean, Jennifer ports in a secure facility. I can´t connect that to anything.  I can relate to Alice job - life. She has graduated and is working afterwards. Later in the book she decides to go to collage. 

Alice also has a boyfriend, if she had not had the secret she goes and carries on she´d been a completely normal teenager. with job , boyfriend and friends.

The characters that we have met in the book Looking for JJ are JenniferJones, that has changed her identity to Alice Tully because Jennifer committed a murder when she was 10 years old and now she want to live as a stranger. She is working at a coffee shop. Alice lives with her friend Rosie who is a social worker. They live in Croydon. Only three people know that Jennifer Jones is now Alice Tully. Rosie, Patricia Coffey who is director of Monskgrove where Alice was incarcerated, and Jill Newton, her probation officer.

In the book we also got a view of Jennifers childhood. Her mums name was Carol Jones and she was a model. She was a beautiful woman that had no time forher daughter. She left her alone many times with her grandmother and just cared about herself and her job. Jennifers grandmother was a smoker and lived in aflat. She had a dog called Nelson.

Alice has a boyfriend named Frankie.I wasn´t keen on her boyfriend, he almost turned into a violent stalker in my opinion before reverting to a lovesick teenager. But they adore each other very much so he is just over protective. 👍

In thebeginning of the novel the environment is not described very well ,  Alice lives in an apartment, the apartment isin the city In USA, and she  works in a caféthat she likes. In the book it’s mentioned about the prison but we don’t get toknow everything. I think that the environment that’s mentioned in the beggingis going to be important later, at least the prison.

Alice Tully is the protagonist in looking for JJ, she lives with a girl named Rosie. Her real name is Jennifer Jones but she have got a new identity after the six years in prison for something she did for six years ago but what she have done is stilla mystery for us. I guess we will find out later what happened that day. Alice has started a new life now and has a boyfriend named Frankie, works at a café and everything are going well until one day when a man show up. This man works as a detective and his job is to figure out what actually happened that day for six years ago. The new life that Alice have built up is now about to rage.


While we read about Alice new life, we get some flashbacks from her childhood.It seems like she had a difficult childhood because she had to move around to different people while her mother worked as a model.
