This was a delightful story about a girl called Amara . Amara has a loving family and a baby sister on the way but her life does not feel complete as there is a big gap in her life where her fathers side of the family should be . When one summer she begs to be given the chance to go to New York in her school holidays and meet her fathers side of the family , her wish comes true , during the duration of the book we find out if she gets all she hoped for , to finally feel whole in her life . I truly loved the story , Amara is a down to earth girl with a lot of love to give and reading about her connecting with her new family members, (the good and the bad bits ) was heartwarming and it brought a lump to the back of the throat. I particularly loved the setting and Amara’s grandfather , he was such a sweet man and I really enjoyed the parts of the story with him in it . The story talks a lot about fitting in , relationships , family connections and love , I thought it was written very well . This was a joy to read . I am very excited about what this writer will write next .
