by Meg Kearney
This novel is told through the perspective of Lizzie, who was adopted into a loving family as a baby and also yearns to find and learn about her birth mother. Lizzie’s story is told creatively through poetry and journal entries. She attends NYU and becomes close to a caring woman who plays guitar in the city. Lizzie, an aspiring poet, hopes and dreams this music and poetry loving woman could possibly turn out to be her birth mother. I won’t give away the ending. I appreciated the note from the author in which Meg Kearney discussed the similarities and differences to Lizzie in her own life. I didn’t realize until the end that this is the last book in a triology and hope to read the original two books soon (The Secret of Me and The Girl in the Mirror).
