Far from the tree

Far from the tree by:Robin Benway this book is about 3 siblings who they all grew up not knowing each other because they were all adopted to different parents. Grace the middle child is a different ride altogether, after getting pregnant at sixteen and putting her own baby up for adoption, she goes looking for her biological family and finds an older brother and younger sister. But she struggles to find the balance between her cautious joy at discovering two brand new family members and the gaping loneliness that lingers in the space her daughter once held. Joaquin, their stoic older bio brother, has no interest in bonding over their shared loss of a one of the three who was never adopted. And seventeen years in the foster care system have taught him his secrets and fears are best kept close to the vest, tight to his chest where they can't hurt anyone but him. Maya, her loudmouthed younger bio sister, has a lot to say about their newfound family ties. Having grown up the snarky brunette in a house full of chipper redleads, she's quick to search for traces of herself among these not quite strangers. When her adopted family's long buried problems begin to explore to the surface, Maya can't help but wonder where exactly it is that she belongs.
