I started this book because I found the author on twitter, and she sounded wonderful. The book took some really beautiful expected turns. It sometimes made me sad, it opened my eyes to the harsh realities of life without the loving parents I have, but also to the miracles of finding yourself within a family that isn't biologically yours, but loves you endlessly.
It's filled with all the truths of finding yourself at a crossroads: in tragedy, or graduating high school; deciding your future, or having no control over it. It's a story of finding hope and allowing yourself to be loved by right right people, and finding your true identity inside of that.
There is sooo much love in this book: adorable kids, adoring grandparents, a father who shows his love by over-analyzing and pressurizing, best friends who truly understand and need each other, an incredible coach, a small own coming together in support of a family.. Just. A lot of love. This was a great read.
