Saffy's Angel by Hilary McKay
genre: young adult
What is Saffy's Angel? The story of Saffy, how she finds out she was adopted into her family of two sisters and a brother and how they help her to find a part of herself that was lost.
Describe it in one word? Delightful
A different one? Charming.
The best part? The characters, their British ways and individual quirks, their love for each other and how they interact. There are no superfluous characters in this book. Period. Each one is well rounded and an integral part of Saffy's journey.
I'm a total fan.
