Student or Learner
I had read a grammar book about past perfect tense and it says there that you use past perfect for something which started ealier and was still going on at the time you are talking about.
Please check if my example of past fercect tense is right.
"Jane had lived in Japan ever since she was a girl."
Can I also say,
"Jane lived in Japan ever since she had been a girl."
If this sentence is wrong, please explain why.
