I really liked this. For me, it was a very different book from what I usually read, but I enjoyed this. The story was easy to follow and I liked that it switched between different viewpoints, as this added different dimensions to the plot.

The book opens with Sarah and Phil getting the results of a genetics test and finding out that their daughter, Lauren, is not actually their child. Obviously, both are confused as to what happened in the hospital fourteen years ago, and agree to finding their biological daughter and her family. This situation is made more complicated due to the fact that Lauren has Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome, and their entire lives have been about looking after her, believing that she was their daughter. As the two families collide and attempt to exist, the fallout effects everyone.

This was a nice story about a near-impossible situation. The only downfall would be the end. It ended suddenly, and without really resolving the situation. I would have liked to know what happened with the two families. Despite this, it was still a nice, fairly easy read.
