This book makes you really think about what might happen if you take one of those DNA tests like off of Ancestry or 23andMe. Dana secretly does a DNA test for her father who never knew his parents and learns things that she wonders if she would have been better off not knowing. This book is a book that definitely stuck in my mind after I finished reading it and makes me wish to read more by this author.
