Reviews

Customer Reviews

“Popular teen author Forman’s adult debut examines just what it means to be a working mother beholden to everyone, seemingly obligated to forget who you really are. Maribeth’s search for her birth mother and the way she settles into her new albeit temporary life away from home will strike a chord with readers, especially those who enjoy Jennifer Weiner and Meg Wolitzer.”

— Booklist (starred)

“. . . sure to be in demand and will especially interest adoptees and their families.”

— Library Journal

“YA author Forman’s successful foray into adult fiction . . . With humor and pathos, Forman depicts Maribeth’s complicated situation and her thoroughly satisfying arc, leaving readers feeling as though they’ve really accompanied Maribeth on her journey.”
