Thank you to Catapult for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

While I don’t read much non-fiction, I was enthralled by this collection of essays. The writers are diverse and pour their hearts onto the page. I could feel the hope and struggle of these writers and their families.

As a transracial adoptee, I appreciated the themes of identity, family, and belonging. All are thinkings I have struggled with and these writers not only shared their unique perspectives on the topics, but reminded me that I am not alone in my struggle.

While the essays are deep and complex, the book is something you can pick up and put down easily. Each essay is independent and lets you pace your reading freely. If you are looking for a more diverse read and want to delve into the topic of immigration, I highly recommend this collection of personal narratives.
