    Oh gosh, this story was incredibly and beautifully written. So, the book is about Marylin and Angie who is mixed race. A mother and her daughter. Set in two different time frames, it follows both of their stories, intertwining beautifully, to tell the story of how they came to where t...

    This was so SO good! A cleverly woven tale told in two timelines about two sets of mothers and daughters. Angie is biracial and has grown up with her white mother, having never met her father (who her mother claims is dead.) While their relationship is loving, her mother is very secret...

    RESEÑA EN ESPAÑOL Actual Rate 3.5 Ava's (author of Love Letters to the Dead) new book was released in México and other Latin-America countries first. It'll be out in the USA (and the rest of the world, I guess) next month and you should definitely read it then. In Search Of Us...

    I won a copy of In Search Of Us via the website Readers First! This was such an emotional novel, I can't even begin to sit down to type this review up and process my thoughts because my mind is a freaking mess. But what I will say is the plotline and characters were very well-develo...

    I wasn't ready for something so beautiful. Told in two timelines, we follow Marilyn's romance with her neighbor, who is a black boy, while she struggles to follow her mother's dream and bear with her uncle's addiction to gambling. And we also follow her daughter's search for her fat...

    I must admit, I wasn?t the biggest fan of Love Letters to the Dead - I read it while I was in hospital, and I literally can?t remember a thing about it aside from the fact that I struggled to finish it. But now I?m thinking I might try it again, because In Search of Us is one of ...

    4.5 stars This is just one of those books that really fill your heart and makes you sad and smile and it?s all happening at the same time you know. There?s a mystery and a love story at the base of this novel. They?ll meet in the proverbially perfect and heart-shattering middle....

    I received a free e-ARC through NetGalley from the publishers at Macmillan Children?s Publishing Group/Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. I fell in love with Dellaira?s writing from the first time I read Love Letters to the Dead, and I?ve read it several times since. I was so excited to...

    4.5 stars I went into In Search of Us not really knowing much about the book, I?d seen Sam give the book a five star rating and that?s all I needed to give this book a go. To be honest I really did struggle with the beginning of the book, the chapters alternate with perspectives...

    In Search Of is the parallel love story, told by a mother and daughter when they are aged just seventeen. Marilyn is new in Los Angeles, pushed into the spotlight by her fame hungry mother but still living in the poverty of hopefulness. Angie feels suffocated by her mothers grief, torn...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I had wanted to read this book for many reasons. One, I really enjoyed Love Letters to the Dead. Two, I love multigenerational stories. Three, coming of age tales always work for me. Four, I never pass up a good romance. I am not quite sure what I was expecting fro...

    I dove right into this one without recalling exactly what it was about, but I certainly couldn?t make myself stop turning the pages every time I picked it up. There was something compelling about this story, about Angie?s present day experiences and Marilyn?s moments more than a ...

    Actual rating 3.5 I admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of Dellaira's previous work Love Letters to the Dead - the idea was stellar, the execution meh. Thankfully, this wasn't the case with In Search of Us. This is a tale of a multigenerational conflict, told in a compelling dual POV...

    *Thank you to the publisher for a free copy in exchange for an honest review!* Actual Rating: 4 YES I CRIED. Now that we have that out of the way... In Search Of Us was a poignant intergenerational story following two characters. There's Marilyn, living in LA in the late 1990...

    I really enjoyed this one! IN SEARCH OF US was my first Dellaira book so I was a bit unsure of what to expect buuuuut I was pretty pleased with this novel in spite of the few reservations I had. Things I liked: - the writing was super poetic and lovely and easy to follow. It was s...

    3.5 stars It's midnight. I'm ugly sobbing. In Search of Us is the kind of book that creeps up on you. I had a hard time connecting to two main characters (Angie & Marilyn) in the beginning, but only in the end did I realize that I had started to care for them somewhere along...

    4,5 Me gustó muchísimo, incluso más que Cartas de amor a los muertos (libro que tampoco llegué a amar). Los personajes son increíbles y el cambio de perspectiva entre Marilyn y Angie está muy bien hecho (debo admitir que me interesaba mucho más la vida de Marilyn cuando era jov...

    Star Rating: 3.5 Stars Well that was better than I expected. The story is beautifully written. However, it starts out rather slow, but the middle really delivers. And I wasn't totally satisfied with the ending. I thought it wrapped up a little to nicely. ...

    This was emotional and heavy and so, so good. IN SEARCH OF US follows Marilyn and Angie, mother and daughter, at seventeen years of age. And let me just say, right off the bat, that multigenerational stories are my absolute favorite. Marilyn?s story is set in the ninetees and Ang...

    I am excited about so many aspects of this book! The parallel story is one that should be really interesting and give different perspectives, yet it seems as though there will also be two stories in one here. Road trip books are my favourites, so I know that I will be picking this one ...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I had wanted to read this book for many reasons. One, I really enjoyed Love Letters to the Dead. Two, I love multigenerational stories. Three, coming of age tales always work for me. Four, I never pass up a good romance. I am not quite sure what I was expecting fro...

    I dove right into this one without recalling exactly what it was about, but I certainly couldn?t make myself stop turning the pages every time I picked it up. There was something compelling about this story, about Angie?s present day experiences and Marilyn?s moments more than a ...

    Actual rating 3.5 I admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of Dellaira's previous work Love Letters to the Dead - the idea was stellar, the execution meh. Thankfully, this wasn't the case with In Search of Us. This is a tale of a multigenerational conflict, told in a compelling dual POV...

    *Thank you to the publisher for a free copy in exchange for an honest review!* Actual Rating: 4 YES I CRIED. Now that we have that out of the way... In Search Of Us was a poignant intergenerational story following two characters. There's Marilyn, living in LA in the late 1990...

    I really enjoyed this one! IN SEARCH OF US was my first Dellaira book so I was a bit unsure of what to expect buuuuut I was pretty pleased with this novel in spite of the few reservations I had. Things I liked: - the writing was super poetic and lovely and easy to follow. It was s...

    3.5 stars It's midnight. I'm ugly sobbing. In Search of Us is the kind of book that creeps up on you. I had a hard time connecting to two main characters (Angie & Marilyn) in the beginning, but only in the end did I realize that I had started to care for them somewhere along...

    4,5 Me gustó muchísimo, incluso más que Cartas de amor a los muertos (libro que tampoco llegué a amar). Los personajes son increíbles y el cambio de perspectiva entre Marilyn y Angie está muy bien hecho (debo admitir que me interesaba mucho más la vida de Marilyn cuando era jov...

    Star Rating: 3.5 Stars Well that was better than I expected. The story is beautifully written. However, it starts out rather slow, but the middle really delivers. And I wasn't totally satisfied with the ending. I thought it wrapped up a little to nicely. ...

    This was such a beautiful story - loved the two timelines, the characters and the story overall <3 Full review coming soon! :) ...

    No lloré, pero no me faltaron las ganas, eh. ...

    This was emotional and heavy and so, so good. IN SEARCH OF US follows Marilyn and Angie, mother and daughter, at seventeen years of age. And let me just say, right off the bat, that multigenerational stories are my absolute favorite. Marilyn?s story is set in the ninetees and Ang...

    I am excited about so many aspects of this book! The parallel story is one that should be really interesting and give different perspectives, yet it seems as though there will also be two stories in one here. Road trip books are my favourites, so I know that I will be picking this one ...

    La Dellaria ha fatto di nuovo centro. Questo libro è stata una sorpresa, perché in tutta sincerità non mi aspettavo una storia profonda, una bella storia si, ma niente di più. INVECE l?autrice ha dimostrato, di nuovo, il suo talento. La storia parla di Angie: 17 anni, un ex f...

    Oh gosh, this story was incredibly and beautifully written. So, the book is about Marylin and Angie who is mixed race. A mother and her daughter. Set in two different time frames, it follows both of their stories, intertwining beautifully, to tell the story of how they came to where t...

    I wasn't ready for something so beautiful. Told in two timelines, we follow Marilyn's romance with her neighbor, who is a black boy, while she struggles to follow her mother's dream and bear with her uncle's addiction to gambling. And we also follow her daughter's search for her fat...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I had wanted to read this book for many reasons. One, I really enjoyed Love Letters to the Dead. Two, I love multigenerational stories. Three, coming of age tales always work for me. Four, I never pass up a good romance. I am not quite sure what I was expecting fro...

    Actual rating 3.5 I admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of Dellaira's previous work Love Letters to the Dead - the idea was stellar, the execution meh. Thankfully, this wasn't the case with In Search of Us. This is a tale of a multigenerational conflict, told in a compelling dual POV...

    *Thank you to the publisher for a free copy in exchange for an honest review!* Actual Rating: 4 YES I CRIED. Now that we have that out of the way... In Search Of Us was a poignant intergenerational story following two characters. There's Marilyn, living in LA in the late 1990...

    I wasn't ready for something so beautiful. Told in two timelines, we follow Marilyn's romance with her neighbor, who is a black boy, while she struggles to follow her mother's dream and bear with her uncle's addiction to gambling. And we also follow her daughter's search for her fat...
