Far from the Tree

Far from the Tree written by Robin Benway, is about a group of teenagers called Joaquin, Grace and Maya that when Grace wants to find out more about her biological mother she discovers that Maya and Joaquin are her siblings. Each of the characters has a secret they don’t feel comfortable sharing but when they all meet they feel a sense of safety and security….

This book has values such as family, love, belonging, loyalty and bravery. It is written really beautifully and by the end of it I felt an immense love for each of the characters. I could not put this book down because it was super addictive! If your looking for an easy and quick read, I would highly recommend this book because it is wonderfully amazing.

Quote “Sometimes, family hurts each other. But after that’s done you bandage each other up, and you move on. Together…you’ve got us now, like it or not, and we’ve got you.

I would totally give this book 4.5 stars.
