National Book Award Winner, PEN America Award Winner, and New York Times Bestseller!

Perfect for fans of This Is Us, Robin Benway’s beautiful interweaving story of three very different teenagers connected by blood explores the meaning of family in all its forms—how to find it, how to keep it, and how to love it. This young adult novel is an excellent choice for accelerated tween readers in grades 7 to 8, especially during homeschooling. It’s a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.

Being the middle child has its ups and downs.

But for Grace, an only child who was adopted at birth, discovering that she is a middle child is a different ride altogether. After putting her own baby up for adoption, she goes looking for her biological family, including—

Maya, her loudmouthed younger bio sister, who has a lot to say about their newfound family ties. Having grown up the snarky brunette in a house full of chipper redheads, she’s quick to search for traces of herself among these not-quite-strangers. And when her adopted family’s long-buried problems begin to explode to the surface, Maya can’t help but wonder where exactly it is that she belongs.

And Joaquin, their stoic older bio brother, who has no interest in bonding over their shared biological mother. After seventeen years in the foster care system, he’s learned that there are no heroes, and secrets and fears are best kept close to the vest, where they can’t hurt anyone but him.

Don't miss this moving novel that addresses such important topics as adoption, teen pregnancy, and foster care.

Robin Benway is a National Book Award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author of six novels for young adults, including Audrey, Wait!, the AKA series, and Emmy & Oliver.

In addition, her novels have received starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Publishers Weekly and have been published in more than twenty countries. Her book Far from the Tree won the 2017 National Book Award for Young People's Literature and the 2018 PEN America Award and was named one of the best books of the year by the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, NPR, PBS, Entertainment Weekly, and the Boston Globe.

I really really like it. I love that it's all about family and different kinds of love and I immediatly took to the characters and it's one of my favourite books. I'm not gonna promise that you'll love it cause that totally depends on what you like but you should definitely give this book a chance!

Heavy emotions ahead!

I think Robin Benway is too much of an underrated author. I have yet to find a book of her that I didn't like. I love her characters and the stories she tells. She also handles emotions very well, as this book is clearly an indication for it. I was hooked from the very first page and immediately taken to Grace, Maya and Joaqu... I think Robin Benway is too much of an underrated author. I have yet to find a book of her that I didn't like. I love her characters and the stories she tells. She also handles emotions very well, as this book is clearly an indication for it. I was hooked from the very first page and immediately taken to Grace, Maya and Joaquin. I loved that family and love were the main topics, it made my heart swell with emotion the entire time I was reading this book. All the relationships between all the charcters felt so authentic and real, Robin Benway is a clear natural at characterization. I want to keep reading Robin Benway's books for the rest of my life because they always make me happy.
