The Other Half of Me

The Other Half of Me - Emily Franklin I really wanted to like this story about a girl whose mom used anonymous donor sperm to get pregnant, and the girl's discovery of a sibling through the Donor Sibling Registry. I'm sorry to say that I found the secondary characters to be virtual cardboard cut-outs, the situations mostly unbelievable. Franklin seems to be trying too hard for an interesting plot. Still, I'm glad to see a donor-conceived kid in a book, any book.
