Finding Me by Kathryn Cushman

Sometimes it's nice to read a book purely for entertainment.  I like fictional stories that can capture my attention similar to watching a movie, but that are also free from the foul language and sexual immorality that is overtaking our culture.  I am pleased to say that Finding Me was one of those good stories!
The plot focuses on a young woman who discovers after her father's death that she had another family she had been taken from as a child.  She then goes on a search to discover who this family is and decide whether she should reveal the truth to them, or keep it a secret.  The scenario is a bit far-fetched, but the characters and their struggles are very real.
The only critique I have is that the ending felt a bit rushed.  The anticipation built throughout the story and then when that moment finally came I thought, "Wait...that's it?"  Give me some more dialogue and details!  The ending was sufficient...I just wanted more.
If you're looking for a book to take out to the pool this summer, this is a good choice!  There are also 6 discussion questions at the end of the book which can be used in a book club.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
