EIGHTEEN-YEAR-OLD JULES
has always wished for a close-knit family like her best friends have. She never knew her father, and her ex-addict mother has always seemed more interested in artistic endeavors than in bonding with her only daughter. Jules's life and future look as flat and unchanging as the small Illinois town where she lives.
Then a simple quest to find a baby picture for the senior yearbook leads to an earth-shattering discovery: for most of the first two years of her life, Jules lived in foster care.
Reeling from feelings of betrayal and armed with only the flimsiest of clues, Jules sets out to learn the truth about her past. What she finds is a wonderful family who loved her as their own and hoped to adopt her-including a now-adult foster brother who is overjoyed to see his sister again. But as her feelings for him spiral into a devastating, catastrophic crush-and the divide between Jules and her mother widens-Jules finds herself on the brink of losing everything.
From the author of Phantom Limbs comes a coming-of-age novel about finding the truth in lies, salvaging hope in heartbreak, and making peace with missing pieces.
