And She Was

We rated this book:


Dara Baker has always had her life figured out. She’s always known who she was and where she came from. Until one day. When Dara wants to sign up for a pro-tennis tournament, she realizes she needs a passport.
But Dara needs one important document to get a passport: her birth certificate. Dara searches everywhere for it. When Dara finally finds it, it throws her whole life into question. Why are two strangers listed as her parents? Dara doesn’t know much about her family, only that her mother, Mellie Baker, is the only parent she’s ever known. But Mellie Baker is not listed on the birth certificate. The certificate even shows a different surname: When her mother finally explains what happened, Dara’s life is broken. Nothing is true anymore. Full of grief and anger, Dara packs her stuff in her car and goes on a road trip with her best friend, Sam. Searching for answers, and a past she never knew about, Dara embarks on a quest to find her real family. When Dara finds her long-lost grandparents, they immediately take over her life. At first, Dara is okay with it. They are the most generous people she’s ever known. They help with her financial problems and launch her career as a pro-tennis player. But they might not be the people Dara thought they were. On a quest to find herself and her past, Dara is on the ride of a lifetime. This was a very well-written book. I would definitely recommend it, especially to people trying to find themselves.
