Belong to Me

Belong to Me book coverCathleen of Fiction/AV/Teen Services recommends Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos:

Feeling much like the new girl in school, young wife Cornelia moves from the city life she knows to unfamiliar suburbia.  Almost immediately she encounters two women who will become indelible parts of her world: formidable Piper, the self-appointed guardian of the neighborhood, and savvy Lake, a single mother with an extraordinary son and a vague past.  In Belong to Me, Marisa de los Santos skillfully weaves these three families into an evocative fabric of secrets and vulnerability, strength and survival.  Struggling to balance cherished dreams with the painful crises that interfere is what defines their futures, especially as each seeks to belong without losing herself.  Belong to Me is rich and rewarding, with vivid characters that will be with you long after the book is closed.
