Instantly captured by this novel. Two different views: a mother and her daughter. Wonderfully timed and realistic.

This is captivating and so hard to put down! I‘m only about 40% through and I‘ve been attached to the characters since page 1.

I liked this book a lot. It‘s a warm and emotional story which I think will resonate with it‘s intended young adult audience! For me it was sometimes a little too YA if that makes sense, a little cheesy occasionally. But overall a quick, good read! 3.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a good read. It's touching and sad at times. It's a very heartfelt story and really touches the reader. I love stories that jump between different times. This is told on the present by Angie and in the past by her mother. It really helps develop the story. The ending was very good. They're are some very sad moments in this but they're written well.

I quite liked this story about two 17 year olds, one who is the mother and the other who is the daughter. Marilyn is in LA in 1998-1999, and Angie in the present. She travels from New Mexico to LA in search of family connections. The writing is lovely, the feelings powerfully portrayed, and the drama subdued, but strong.Their narratives stand alone, but are also carefully intertwined. #preview #mayrelease2018🇦🇺 #rso #recommended

It's been done, but not so much I'm tired of it. It has a pretty / sweet quality, without being mushy girly.
