Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky
This book was full of surprises, the 1st being that Lizzie Clarke was born with brown skin and African-American features, yet both her parents were Caucasian. I found the rest of the story, and how it came to be that Lizzie was born African-American very unbelievable.
The other surprise was that I liked this book! My mom gave it to me a few years back and it had been sitting on my “TBR” shelf and I didn’t think I wanted to read it – it looked like a romance-Lifetime Movie-Type book and I was surprised that it really wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, it could definitely be a Lifetime Movie, it just wasn’t as bad as I expected.
