    This is just one of those books that really fill your heart and makes you sad and smile and it’s all happening at the same time you know. There’s a mystery and a love story at the base of this novel. They’ll meet in the proverbially perfect and heart-shattering middle.

    The novel switches between Angie wanting to know more about her father and trying to find out if he’s dead or alive, and how it all started with her father and Marilyn, Angie’s mother. I loved seeing the romance between Ma

    Me gustó muchísimo, incluso más que Cartas de amor a los muertos (libro que tampoco llegué a amar). Los personajes son increíbles y el cambio de perspectiva entre Marilyn y Angie está muy bien hecho (debo admitir que me interesaba mucho más la vida de Marilyn cuando era joven que lo que contaba Angie, pero esto no quiere decir que su perspectiva me aburriera)

    Ampliaré más en un próximo Wrap up, pero sepan que es un libro sumamente recomendable.

    Ava's (author of Love Letters to the Dead) new book was released in México and other Latin-America countries first. It'll be out in the USA (and the rest of the world, I guess) next month and you should definitely read it then.

    In Search Of Us is Angie's story, she's an African-American seventeen-year-old girl who grew up without a father. Her mother, a white woman, has never been able to tell her much about him without crying.

    When Angie finds out a picture of he

    Oh gosh, this story was incredibly and beautifully written.

    So, the book is about Marylin and Angie who is mixed race. A mother and her daughter. Set in two different time frames, it follows both of their stories, intertwining beautifully, to tell the story of how they came to where they are now.

    I don't want to get too detailed about the synopsis, so I'll leave it at that.

    The tone of the story was just sad, full of melancholy and hope and the attachment got deeper as I read on. The type of feeli

    Well that was better than I expected.

    The story is beautifully written. However, it starts out rather slow, but the middle really delivers. And I wasn't totally satisfied with the ending. I thought it wrapped up a little to nicely.

    This was such a beautiful story - loved the two timelines, the characters and the story overall <3

    YES I CRIED. Now that we have that out of the way...

    In Search Of Us was a poignant intergenerational story following two characters. There's Marilyn, living in LA in the late 1990s and counting down the days until she can escape to college; she feels trapped in the world her mother has built for her, a world of acting and modeling jobs that barely earn enough to feed two people. But then she runs into
