“It took us fifteen years to find each other, but we still did! And sometimes, family hurts each other. But after that’s fine you bandage each other up, and you move on. Together. You’ve got us now, like it or not, and we’ve got you.”
Far From the Tree revolves around three biological siblings, separated as babies, who find each other fifteen years later. All three of them have their own conflicts, and they all felt so real and personal. I loved the bond that formed between Joaquin, Grace, and Maya, and how this book explored the different shapes that family can take. This was such an emotional read, and I definitely recommend it if you’re in the market for a good contemporary.
WARNINGS: alcoholism, foster care, teen pregnancy.
