Great read! Simone receives notice that her birth mother Rivka wants to get in touch with her, so she reluctantly invites her over. She learns who Rivka truly is and they develop a nice relationship, but Rivka is dying. Amazing and touching!

One day Simone's mother reieves a call from Rivika, her birth mother. Rivika wants to meet up with Simone but, she doesn't feel like thats the right thing to do. Simone could careless about Rivika making an "effort" to come see her.

This story has alot of meaning in it and also touched me. My friend Amber is adopted and her birth mother has constantly tried to get in touch with her multiple times but, Amber feels as if the family shes with noe is the family she is meant to be with and doesn't want anything to do with her real mother.

Sixteen-year-old Simone has always known she was adopted but has never questioned it. She's aware of her dark features in her family of blond hair and fair skin. Her "parents" have talked to her about her birth mother, a woman named Rivka, but Simone has never wanted to learn more simply because she's happy with the family she has.

Then, one day, Rivka calls and wants to get in contact with Simone. With her parents urging her along, Simone is going to face her past--her real mother, her real family, and her true cultural background.

This book was a real treat to read. I enjoyed the different scenes and elements it contained: Simone meeting Rivka and learning the story of her adoption; Simone speaking up for her beliefs (she's an atheist who supports abortion); and Simone dealing with her high school crush.

All in all, this is a book definitely worth reading.

the book is about a girl named Simone who was adopted by a very caring family. she never cared about her birth mother until her juionor year in high school when her b.m. wanted to get to know her. the story is about Siomone getting to know her b.m and the struggle she goes through dealing with her, her friends, boys, school, and life in general. this book is amazing because it takes a look at the life of a girl who isn't living in LA or NYC and who isn't spoiled. its about a semi-regular girl dealing with semi-noraml problems.

This book captured my attention from the beginning. Finally, another book where the main character is about my age, and I can basically relate to! This is a book you must read! At some parts, it can be a little boring, but once you turn that page, more of Simone's story unfolds. You'll want to laugh and cry with Simone when you read this book.

I thought it was one of the worst books i have ever read I dont know if it was because she just kept saying how she was so against stuff and repeating about it. But she always wasn't really a real fictional person she was just blahhhh. I couldnt read more then like 10 pages without wanting to cry from bordem. I found this book annoying and just not great.
