Far from the Tree
Grace has grown up knowing that she had been adopted. Her parents have always told her that they will help her find her biological family when she was ready. Grace discovers she is pregnant and when she tells her boyfriend, his parents decide that he has to break up with her.. With her life spiraling a bit, Grace decides that it's time to seek out her family. When she finds her younger sister Maya, and her older brother Joaquin, she also finds that they have their own problems and questions. They get on relatively well together and they do their best to look out for each other as they try to unravel their shared past. It's a beautifully written book that brings tears to your eyes. Great characters too. Ably narrated by Julia Whelan.
