Far from the Tree
by Robin Benway
5 out of 5 stars

Grace is an adopted teenager who finds out she has two biological siblings when she chooses to put her baby up for adoption, so she can give her a better life than she could give her. Enter Maya who is struggling with problems within her own family and Joaquin who was never adopted and has been in numerous foster homes and is struggling to find his place in the world. Together the three will set out to try and find their birth mother. Each has their own reason for wanting to meet her. Each has their own reason for not wanting to meet her as well.

This was my first book by Robin Benway and I really enjoyed it and will probably look into some of her other novels as well. I know this is marketed as YA, but I feel like this could easily be just a contemporary novel as well. Even though the characters are teenagers it did not feel juvenile like some YA book do.

This book makes you want to look into the adoption/foster program because you don’t want to see any kids not have a home or not feel wanted. I really connected with all the characters and that is rare for me. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book.

  1. My friends want to adopt at some point, but they’ve realised things are much more complicated than ‘saving a child’

  2. Oh for sure. I teach so I see so many kids that are neglected, so this book affected me in that way. I would want someone to do a lot of research before they just decided adoption or fostering a child was the right move for them.
