Synopsis

Tao by John Newman, Del Thorpe

A beautifully and humorously written story about how an adopted boy who is dealing with his parent's divorce discovers that he has a long-lost twin sister. eBook available. Tao didn't think anything about that phone call. It was just a wrong number. A little thing. But he was so wrong! Tao has a sister. She is Chinese like him, adopted like him, and her name is Mimi. Ever since Jo took his dad away, Tao feels like he's in the middle of a tug-of-war between his parents. But he can't help hoping that they will get back together ...someday. This is John Newman's second novel and the sequel to Mimi.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
