Publisher's Summary

“A heart-wrenching quest for identity every YA reader will relate to, and a deep dive into the meaning of family." (Ellen Hopkins, number-one New York Times best-selling author) 

Debut author Dante Medema explores the emotional fallout after a teenage girl discovers she is the product of an affair. Told through a series of poems, text messages, and emails, this contemporary YA is perfect for fans of Gaby Dunn and Allison Raskin. 

Seventeen-year-old Cordelia Koenig intended to breeze through her senior project. While her peers stressed, Cordelia planned to use the same trace-your-roots genealogy idea her older sister used years prior. And getting partnered with her longtime crush, Kodiak Jones, is icing on the cake. All she needs to do is mail in her DNA sample, write about her ancestry results, and get that easy A. 

But when Cordelia’s GeneQuest results reveal that her father is not the person she thought he was, but a stranger who lives thousands of miles away, her entire world shatters. Now she isn’t sure of anything - not the mother who lied, the man she calls Dad, or the girl staring back at her in the mirror. 

If your life began with a lie, how can you ever be sure of what's true?

It was okay.

In my opinion The narrator was too slow in her words. It just seemed like the book could have been read faster. In my defense i do read more of fast paced books. The book itself was amazing just had a hard time listening due to the slowness.

Such an emotive read!

This book paints a vivid picture of the wide range of emotions young adults cope with on thier journey of self-discovery and emergence into the adult world. Beautifully crafted with authentic images of life in Alaska and very well narrated verse.
