In My Mailbox (20)

Thanks to The Story Siren for hosting this each Sunday!

Things were slower this week, but that was just fine with me as I have had a few really good weeks in a row, and can't possibly get through them all without a break. But I was VERY happy to get this! My first book from Scholastic!

From the Publisher:
by Erin McCahan
Published June 1st 2010 by Arthur A. Levine Books
Hardcover, 272 pages

Seventeen-year-old Bronwen Oliver doesn't just want a family. She has one of those, and there's nothing terribly wrong with them apart from bickering grandparents, an image-obsessed mother and a brother she describes simply as Jesus. But there's no natural sense of connection between Bronwen and her family, leaving her with the belief -- and the hope -- that she was switched at birth, that she was never supposed to be Bronwen Oliver but someone else entirely.
