About a Girl [Book]

Author Sarah McCarry has released her final book in her Metamorphosis trilogy.  I read the first two All Our Pretty Songs and Dirty Wings.

The final book is titled About A Girl. There is an adoption thread that runs through all three books. It does not bonk you in the head and I would not necessarily call this an adoption book yet I find the authors inclusion of adoption in the character development — and her choice of words to be intriguing. As obvious here on this blog, I read a great deal about adoption, fiction, non fiction, memoir, etc. McCarry’s books popped up on my radar for that reason.

Excerpted from Barnes and Noble Overview (bold emphasis mine):

“Eighteen-year-old Tally is absolutely sure of everything: her genius, the love of her adoptive family, the loyalty of her best friend, Shane, and her future career as a Nobel prize-winning astronomer. There’s no room in her tidy world for heartbreak or uncertainty–or the charismatic, troubled mother who abandoned her soon after she was born. But when a sudden discovery upends her fiercely ordered world, Tally sets out on an unexpected quest to seek out the reclusive musician who may hold the key to her past–and instead finds Maddy, an enigmatic and beautiful girl who will unlock the door to her future.”

I ordered the book today on BN.com.  More to come after I read it.
