This book is a teen love story with substance. I found the story relatable and interesting. But it was a bit predictable. I would recommend this to a friend.

Jenny's a painter in a family full of sports lovers. She can't catch a ball to save her life. Is it any wonder she feels like an outsider in her own family?

While she has always known that she's the product of a sperm donor, it never really made much difference until she reads an article about tracking down relations. Now she can't let go of the idea.

Could there be a sibling out there, just like her? Is Jenny brave enough to meet her half-sister once she finds her?

Finally, Jenny believes she's found the part of her that's been missing for years.

Emily Franklin's written another notable drama full of high angst where the main character struggles to find her identity.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The subject is the real life consequences of going outside the usual ways of conceiving a life. The heroine is the product of artificial insemination from an unknown sperm donor and her situation is portrayed honestly. She is loved by her family but feels 'different'--not uncommon when one is a teen. This book reminded me why I'm glad I'm in the Middle years of my life. g Anyway, the author didn't pull any punches and didn't restrict her story to the strait-jacket of PC-ness. Well done!
