I couldn't put this book down, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The ending was quite interesting and unexpected, which is a pleasure when it seems that lately you can guess the ending to almost every book.

If you like The Deep End of the Ocean, you will like this book. It is a story of a little girl caught between two families and all the deep emotions someone one has for their children, their grandchildren and our ability to do the right thing for the wrong reasons out of love.

This is so well written that you actually become a part of this character's life; I loved how "real" everything was ... it wasn't written like a cheesy made-for-TV movie, it was reality, true to life: there are depressing parts to the story, but there are also down right funny and happy parts too! This is a great book ... it will make you look at your own life a little differently --at least it did for me. :)

A heartbreakingly good book. A wonderful exploration of the meaning of family. The characters were not well flushed out, but a good book all the same.

read the amazom reviews too much detail I don't often skip parts of a book but did with this one felt like "get on with it please" too much stuff about Gordon's escapades

I thought this book had a lot of interesting ideas (adopted children vs. blood children, what makes a family) but I didn't think the execution was very good. I felt disengaged from the characters and the idea of their story was more intriguing to me rather than how Mitchard wrote it (if that makes any sense). I struggled to finish and thought the ending was a bit pat.
