This isn’t one of Lois Lowry’s most famous novels, but it’s a wonderful book. The book follows Natalie the summer after she graduates from high school as she searches for her biological mother. The book takes place in the seventies, so Natalie’s research involves driving to different towns, looking up newspapers and yearbooks in libraries, reading old journals, and handwriting letters. Lois Lowry writes such wonderfully well-rounded characters. Even very minor characters such as the lady running the boarding house or the mentioned but never seen Aunt Helen are fleshed out characters with personalities of their own. The best part of the book is Natalie’s relationship with her parents, and how she imagines what it was like for them when they first drove to pick up their five day old daughter.
