ARC Review: Far From Tree by Robin Benway


Far from the TreeFar from the Tree by Robin Benway

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this read but came out pleasantly surprised by what I had found.

The book revolves around three young adults that were separated when their mother gave them up for adoption. They are able to reunite and each of them find out that their lives are not as perfect as everyone around them thinks it is. They each have their fair share of issues and they each have hidden secrets that they need to find the courage to let the others aware of.

I loved the dynamic of the three POV’s and found the writing very easy to follow. The characters were well developed and definitely relatable. I cannot state whether I had a favorite character because I loved each of them for different reasons.

Grace was very sweet and really wanted to do the best she could for “peach”. This time in her life was very traumatic and one that will stay with her forever.

Maya wanted to be perceived as strong when she really was falling apart. She felt that she needed to hold everything together for everyone else but what she finds out is that it is okay to ask for help.

Joaquin was so protective over his sisters, which I LOVED, and was always worried about getting too close to people. He was cut a really raw deal but seemed like he might be okay.

Three completely different kids finding out where they come from and dealing with the after math of their families difficulties together as a united family. **swoon**

Thanks to the publisher for the review copy!
