In Where We Belong, we meet Marian and Kirby. Marian got pregnant just out of high school and gave the baby up for adoption. Her baby, Kirby, is now eighteen and has access to the adoption records and comes to find her birth mother. What makes this story unusual is the fact that Marian has kept the pregnancy and adoption a secret from everyone except for her mother. And I mean everyone. Even as Marian made a great life for herself she never disclosed her secret to even her most intimate friends. To me this book is about secrets but also about honesty and the importance of being truthful not just to others but to ourselves. In regards to the end of the book, some people I’ve talked with like it and some are left wanting more. I personally like it. But don’t worry I’m not going to give any spoilers! You will have to read it for yourself to see if you are content. Added bonus, fans of Giffin’s book Baby Proof will appreciate the character’s cameos in this book.
