Samuel Andresen-Anderson was not expecting a phone call from a lawyer. Especially not a call about the mother that abandoned him all those years ago. He tries to find out more about his mother's past in order to understand why she left him and if she could truly be a terrorist as the papers are claiming.
This was such a well written book, it full deserves all the praise it is getting.
The author was able to create such a rich world for Samuel and his mother Faye. The story alternate between the past and presents and through many people's POV. We see Faye as child and college student, Samuel as a boy and a grown man.
They were such well fleshed out characters. And the fact that we got to see from the POV of supporting characters really added to the story. It helped make this feel like such a grounded story.
I enjoyed every moment of this book. I liked the writing style. I loved the characters. The book might have been a tad too long, but I still greatly enjoyed it.
I gave this book a B+
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
