Another super fun book blast!
This story sounds like a story that I'm sure a lot of children actually go through, I can only imagine how emotional it must be, definitely seems like a must read!
About the book:
"Life on Hold" by Beverly Stowe McClure:
A paper found.
A secret revealed.
A girl's life changed forever.
Myra Gibson's life is a lie. For sixteen years her parents have kept their secret, but the adoption paper she discovers while cleaning the guest house tells the truth. As the past and present collide, Myra finally stands up for herself and begins a journey she may regret.
"All I can say is wow! Beverly Stowe McClure knocked this one out of the ballpark. The story of Myra and her search for the truth touched upon one of the fundamental needs of all children (and teens): the need for a father in their lives. ... The school librarian at the middle school where I teach is already looking into buying a copy for the school library. It's that good."

When Beverly Stowe McClure was a child she hated to read, even though her eighth grade teacher sent her poem “Stars” to the National High School Poetry Association, and it was published in Young America Sings. In spite of her rocky relationship with books, she attended Midwestern State University, where she read too many books to count, and graduated as cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Education. She taught as an elementary school teacher for twenty-two years. Reading Dr. Seuss to her sons and Newbery winners to her students made Beverly realize what she had been missing: Reading was fun!
Now, she reads (and writes) just about every day. - Her articles for children’s magazines, many of them about activities her classes did in school, have been published in leading children‘s magazines. One article was reprinted in a Scott Foresman Anthology, Grades PK/K. And her doggie story appeared in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book.
Beverly’s five novels for teens and tweens are published by small Indie Publishers. Her YA historical novel, Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines, is a finalist in the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, Novella Division. The book also is a finalist in Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards, Teen Fiction, and is an Honor Award Winner in the Reader's Favorite Book Award Contest, YA Category, as well as an Honor Winner in the Eric Hoffer Book Awards, YA Category. Listen to the Ghost was a finalist in the 2003 Dream Realm Awards. Her first picture book came out in June 2011. And her latest book, Life on Hold, is a YA contemporary novel. She is quite accomplished!
She lives in the country with her husband, two beautiful cats, and a variety of wild critters that come to visit.
