Overview

What’s worse: finding out your dad’s not your real dad or finding out your real dad’s an anonymous sperm donor? Sixteen-year-old Cassidy has just been told by her father that she was conceived “under exceptional circumstances.” Struggling to understand that her biological father is an anonymous sperm donor, Cassidy can’t believe it. Not only has her father just been diagnosed with a fatal disease, he’s not really her father. Suddenly Cassidy’s worries about how to hold on to her boyfriend while not having sex, and her geeky interest in birds no longer seems important. Worse, she gets drunk and blurts out the news of her conception at a party and must face some shocking consequences. Like the turkey baster thrown through her front window. Or the fact that she may never know who she really is. Finding Cassidy is a terrific young adult novel that tackles a provocative subject with honesty and humour.
