I did a New Years book haul at the end of 2021. Before 2022 started, I saw this book on Goodreads and decided to add it to my TBR and a week later when I did the book haul, I saw this book had released early in Barnes & Noble and decided to grab as part of my haul. The cover is gorgeous and very eye catching (y’all know I’m a sucker for gorgeous book covers).
So, Millie is searching for her mother. All she knows is that her mom left her at her father’s doorstep and disappeared. She has never met her mother, but she desperately wants too. Although her father was out of town a lot, she regularly turned to her aunt for advice. Throughout the book, you see Millie interacting with women who could possibly be her mother.
I thought this book was cute and quite different from what I usually read. As a young adult book, I do tend to wonder if the book is going to have a realistic plot and I feel like I got that in this book. There is some slight romance, but I feel Millie’s search for her mother took the front seat in this book. It was nice to see Millie interact with women who she thought could be her mother and it was nice to see her work her way through this situation.
