My personal Rating-
While I really enjoyed the first book in this series, I found myself quite disappointed in this sequel. Young adoptees should have a parent read first or read along with them due to the plot of Sophie panicking that she was adopted. Also due to other content, I would really recommend an adult read first if there is any hesitation on giving it to a daughter or young girl.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
