I ached for Selene as she is dealing with the loss of her Mom while feeling upset and angry to find out Gloria wasn't her biological mother. And then when they find out who her biological mom is (don't want to give it away) I was heartbroken and horrified for her.
This book was well written and well edited. Like someone else said- this isn't a good first book- it is just a good book period!
Selene Mannon has to answer all of those questions. I go back and forth on whether I agree with her choices, but either way it is all explained and she is a great main character. The book begins with her mother on her death-bed admitting that Selene was conceived through IVF with a donor egg. Now with both her mother and father gone, she moves to New York City with her aunt and uncle and begins the search to find her genetic mother.
With the help of her aunt Lila, a pediatrician Deandra, and a private investigator, Max, Selene begins to not only investigate her background, but a string of children with missing records, common ailments, and one doctor in common. The book explores many different relationships, many people who were forced to conceal the truth, or chose to for various reasons. And a really unbelievable scheme in the end. I’ll say it again, un-be-lieve-able as I struggle with wrapping my head around it, or even doing a Google search about it. It’s a bit disturbing too but the build up is so good, thus my good rating.
It’s a fictional book, obviously based on something that could happen (at least the beginning part of it), so we’ll leave it at that. As I mentioned before, a page-turner of the true definition. A fast read with vibrant characters, glad I had the chance to preview!

I wasn't wrong.
This truly is a page turner. I don't think any reviewer/reader could do a write up on the lovely story without giving it away, so I'm going to try my best not to do this.
Selene is now 20 years old, and sitting beside her Mother's deathbed she is told by her Mother's dying breath that although she is her Mother in most senses of the word, but not her biological one.
Now, before you think its a cut and dried case and she goes off searching for her biological Mom, you couldn't be farther from the truth as to where this would lead and what it would uncover.......that's all I am saying!
When I read that this is Anita Bihovsky's FIRST book, I was what? WHAT!, surely not, she is an expert writer, expert author, expert story teller. I would certainly not have thought this was her first written work.
To use the old reviewers Cliché....it was a page turner, I couldn't put it down, it kept me up reading all night.....this was fab, this was good, this was.....
You get the picture?! well, it was all of those Clichés and MORE.
If you don't read anything else this year.......read this one.
May I thank the author Anita Bihovsky for gifting me this book. This has in no way urged me to write a good review, I write honestly and from my thoughts, feelings and how a book affects me.
