Year of Mistaken Discoveries Year of Mistaken Discoveries

Author: Eileen Cook   
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: February 25, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:
 
Friendship is a bond stronger than secrets in this novel from the author of The Almost Truth and Unraveling Isobel.As first graders, Avery and Nora bonded over a special trait they shared—they were both adopted.

Years later, Avery is smart, popular, and on the cheerleading squad, while Nora spends her time on the fringes of school society, wearing black, reading esoteric poetry, and listening to obscure music. They never interact...until the night Nora approaches Avery at a party, saying it’s urgent. She tells Avery that she thought she found her birth mom—but it turned out to be a cruel lie. Avery feels for Nora, but returns to her friends at the party.

Then Avery learns that Nora overdosed on pills. Left to cope with Nora’s loss and questioning her own actions, Avery decides to honor her friend by launching a search for her own birth mother. Aided by Brody, a friend of Nora’s who is also looking for a way to respect Nora’s legacy, Avery embarks on an emotional quest. But what she’s really seeking might go far deeper than just genetics…

Why I'm Excited:

I just think this sounds interesting. That last line sounds kind of sinister and you all know I love a good mystery. Plus, I'm really drawn to books that focus on friendships and the bonds the between girls.

  10. This is new to me. It sounds super intense, but really good. YA literature needs more books focusing on friendships and not relationships, if you ask me! Great pick!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
