    full review posted on blog 4 1 2 stars That was unexpected Far From the Tree is an exploration of family, the one you find and the one you re born into Great concept, right But I definitely did not guess just how good this would be A story like this is one that can only succeed based off stellar character work, and my expectations for character work in contemporary is often quite low But this was so lovely.This book revolves around three siblings, each with their own conflicts Grace has recently given birth and put a girl up for adoption Ostracized at school and by her ex boyfriend, she s trying to fit in Maya is living with divorcing parents and a dysfunctional home situation And also her first girlfriend Joaquin is a foster child trying to decide whether to trust his maybe adoptees And guess what I loved all three of them I don t want to give away much about this book, because it s one best experienced But if I were to sum this book up, it feels so personal With such fantastic characters, the friendship and family element totally stands out The older she got, the human her parents seemed, and that was one of the scariest things in the world She missed being little, when they were the all knowing gods of her world, but at the same time, seeing them as human made it easier to see herself that way, too. Oh, and I love the representations of being adopted It s amazing And I adore the way Maya is represented as a gay girl ...

    Hello Goodreaders, it is I, the Black Sheep Missed me No Just yesterday I was telling myself how wonderful my reads have been lately And voil I have jinxed myself instantly I tried, I really did Then I tried some , because I am familiar with this author, but alas nothing.Nothing My heart feels nothing It should be devastated or filled with admiration or, I don t know, just feel something Goddamn, why can t you feel something, heart Now I don t want my heart to be giving me a heart attack out of spite, so I will stop insulting it It is what it is I won t deny that this is an important book Three siblings who are reunited That s incredible I ve seen it on TV many times before, and I ve read different stories with characters in the foster care system try One for the Murphys right now but I thought I should give this a chance nonetheless.And it s fine It s okay It s readable The story didn t impress me, and I found the writing dry, and the characters two dimensional, but I guess I could have finished it if I had had the time, but I knew that by the end of it I wouldn t be able to give it higher than three stars, and that s just sad.The author s choice to write it in the third person point of view befuddles me Why oh why did you do that, dear Robin Benway I have read books from her written in the first person point of view and I enjoyed them much It would have...

    families come in various shapes, sizes, colours, personalities, and dynamics no two families are the same and thats what makes them so wonderful this book is a perfect example of that this is a story about three biological siblings who are separated into different homes paths as infants and later reconnect once they discover each others existence and reading about the desperate longing these siblings have for each other, as well as their desire to meet and grow into a family, it made realise how much i take my own family for granted the overwhelming love and support and hope that radiates off of the pages of this book is so just wholesome its true that no family is perfect, but this story so beautifully portrays how a family can feel like the perfect home and sometimes family just really means those you love a...

    4.5 stars for this one.Robin Benway s Far from the Tree recently won the National Book Award It s a beautiful, thought provoking tearjerker of a book, a meditation about family and its different forms, as well as the fears we don t share with those we love, and how what we don t say is often of a roadblock than the things we do.At times this book had me like While at other times it had me like Grace is an only child, although she s always known that she was adopted But shortly after she gives birth to her own daughter while she s still in high school, and gives the baby up for adoption, she decides that it s time to start looking for her biological mother She than surprised to find out from her parents that Grace had two biological siblings an older brother, Joaquin, and a younger sister, Maya, whom she never knew existed.Maya is tremendously outspoken about everything, perhaps because she s the lone brunette in a house full of redheads Her adopted parents marriage is floundering, her mother has a drinking problem, and she s always felt the outsider in her family, since her younger ...
