Finding Mia

Author: Rachel K. Burke

Genre: Contemporary/New Adult

Release date: January 2012

Book Description:

Intelligent and fiercely independent, sixteen-year-old Mia Marchette has never had a childhood. After her father’s disappearance when she was six, she has alone borne the burden of her mother’s bipolar disorder.

When her mother is institutionalized after a failed suicide attempt, Mia is abruptly forced to live with the estranged father she has not known for ten years. She is shocked to discover that he has created a new, picture-perfect life for himself, and is now living with a stepmother and a half-sister Mia never knew she had. Together, Mia and her new family must face the bitterness, mistakes, and long-hidden secrets that threaten to destroy their precarious happiness.

Finding Mia follows Mia's journey as she searches to find the unanswered questions from her past, leading to her own self-discovery.

Ultimately, this is a story of confronting pain and finding freedom, of letting go and learning to search for love in unexpected places.

My Review:

First I have to say the cover itself would have me wanting to read Finding Mia, it is so soft and pretty looking. I know you are not suppose to judge a book by the cover - but I still do.
Mia was 16 years and living with her mother who had some good days and some bad days, she really didn't play any part in Mia's life.  Mia's father left when she was six, he could not take the bad days her mother had, so he kissed Mia and left.  

One day Mia's mother tried to commit suicide and was then placed in an institution to get some help.  Mia was forced to live with her father who she no longer knew.  He had a new family, a new life.  How does a 16 year girl fit in? What happens to Mia? Her Mother? Her new family?

Finding Mia kept me interested till the very end. I think anyone would like this book.
