Launch | The Search For Us by Susan Azim Boyer
Join Us for This Great Virtual YA Event!
New from SUSAN AZIM BOYER comes The Search For Us, the beautifully-crafted YA title about the deep and abiding power of family. Susan will be in conversation with PRIYANKA TASLIM, author of The Love Match.
In The Search For Us, Samira will do anything to keep her fractured family from falling apart, including caring for her widowed grandmother and getting her older brother into recovery for alcohol addiction. With her dream college on the line, she takes a long shot DNA test to find the support she so desperately needs from a father she hasn’t seen since she was a baby.
Henry is torn between his well-meaning but unreliable bio-mom and his overly strict aunt and uncle, who stepped in to raise him but don’t seem to see him for who he is. Looking to forge a stronger connection to his own identity, he takes a DNA test to find the one person who might love him for exactly who he is — the biological father he never knew.
Instead of a DNA match with their father, Samira and Henry are matched with each other. They begin to search for their father together and slowly unravel the difficult truth of their shared past, forming a connection that only siblings can have and recovering precious parts of their past that have been lost.
