You Are My Only by Beth Kephart

You Are My Only
Author: Beth Kephart
Genre: Young Adult
Format: ebook
Publisher: Egmont USA
Release Date: 10-25-11
In the few seconds it took for Emmy to get a blanket, her baby was taken.  Young and in a bad marriage, Baby was the only thing good in Emmy’s life.  Fourteen ears later, the baby that was taken from Emmy is living with the woman she believes is her mother.  When her desire to know who she is and why she has to always stay away from The No Good becomes too strong, she decides to find out where she really belongs.

This book was heartbreaking and emotional.  The story is told by Emmy in the days and weeks after Baby is taken, and then fast forwards fourteen years later, in alternating chapters, when Sophie (Baby) starts to figure out that there is more to her story than her “mother” is telling her.  Beth Kephart writes about Emmy’s panic with such force that your heart stays in your throat and you feel her unraveling with every minute that passes.  Sophie’s story is just as emotional.  Her life is carefully constructed and her days filled with learning, but as she starts asking herself more and more questions, that insular world starts to open up.  She meets a boy next door who is living with his two aunts and their friendship gives her the strength to discover who she is.  The author very skillfully pulls you into Sophie’s isolated existence and boxes you in right along with her. 

I felt every word of this book.  It was full of heartbreak and desperation.  Emmy’s determination to find Baby was so real that it took my breath away.  The best part about this book was that I wasn’t sure if the ending was really happy or not.  Both voices were written so beautifully that I could not really tell you what I wanted for Sophie, in the end.  That greyness within a situation that seems black and white kept me awake long after I finished the book.  You are really missing out if you don’t take the opportunity to read this. I gave it 5 stars.

I received this book as a galley from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
