Book review : Far from the tree Robin benway
Far from the Tree - Robin Benway

July 28-August 1

A contemporary novel about three adopted siblings who find each other at just the right moment.

Being the middle child has its ups and downs.

But for Grace, an only child who was adopted at birth, discovering that she is a middle child is a different ride altogether. After putting her own baby up for adoption, she goes looking for her biological family, including—

Maya, her loudmouthed younger bio sister, who has a lot to say about their newfound family ties. Having grown up the snarky brunette in a house full of chipper redheads, she’s quick to search for traces of herself among these not-quite-strangers. And when her adopted family’s long-buried problems begin to explode to the surface, Maya can’t help but wonder where exactly it is that she belongs.

And Joaquin, their stoic older bio brother, who has no interest in bonding over their shared biological mother. After seventeen years in the foster care system, he’s learned that there are no heroes, and secrets and fears are best kept close to the vest, where they can’t hurt anyone but him. 


Review : I freaking loved this book it was heartbreaking and beautiful about family . This is about 3 siblings who each are adopted except for Joaquin because he's afraid 
who decided to find each other and they get to know each other . Grace she's going through a lot she just gave her baby up for adoption and wants to find her birth mother . Maya who is dealing with her parents always fighting and her mother secretly hiding alcohol. Joaquin who's foster family wants to adopt him but he is afraid to be adopted because of his past . Grace goes back to school and gets bullied by some asshole who plays baby noises and she ends up punching him and goes to cry in the bathroom where she meets a new friend they develop a friendship which I really liked . Maya has a girlfriend who she ends up breaking up with . Maya mom ends up passing out drunk and ends up going to rehab . Joaquin I really felt for his character cause he's been through so much . They all decide to find there birth mother but find out she died by there aunt but she cared for them all she just couldn't keep them . Joaquin finally decides he wants to be adopted I cried a lot in this book.

“I think anyone who’s been in that much pain must have a pretty big heart.” Grace’s voice was thoughtful. “And no matter what, Maya and I won’t give you back.” “Nope,” Maya added. “This was a final sale. No returns, no backsies.” Joaquin smiled a little. “But what if—” “Nope!” Grace said. “You heard Maya.” “But maybe—” “No!” both girls cried this time, and Joaquin laughed, clear and sharp in the cooling air, the sound echoing back in his ears and filling him up.
