Tao by John Newman, Del Thorpe


Tao by John Newman, Del Thorpe

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.
