Paper Chains

Katie and Ana are the kind of friends who share everything with each other. But there are some things you can't even share with your best friend.

Katie has always known she was adopted, but recently she's been wondering about her birth parents and her birthplace. She worries that saying this out loud -- even to her best friend -- could mess up the perfect family she has now.

Ana's family has been falling apart ever since her dad left, and it's up to her to hold it together. But Ana fears no matter how hard she tries, her family may never be whole again.

At a time when they need each other the most, the links between the girls are beginning to break. Before they lose each other, they must work through the tangles of secrets to the shining truth underneath: friendship, just like family, is worth fighting for.

"The complicated realities of adoption — for example, that Katie’s intact adoptive family resembles Ana’s fractured one in ways an intact biological family does not — are portrayed with insight rare in children’s fiction. The also-rare depiction of a Russian-born adoptee (one of more than 46,000 in the U.S.) is especially welcome. A well-told story celebrating the power of friendship to comfort and heal when families fall short." -- Kirkus Reviews
