The How & the WhyBook - 2019 | First edition
"Cassandra McMurtrey has the best parents a girl could ask for; they've given Cass a life she wouldn't trade for the world. She has everything she needs--but she has questions, too. Like, to know who she is. Where she came from. Questions her adoptive parents can't answer, no matter how much they love her. But eighteen years ago, someone wrote Cass a series of letters. And they may just hold the answers Cass has been searching for. Alternating between Cass's search for answers and letters from the pregnant teen who placed her for adoption, this emotionally resonant narrative is the perfect read for fans of Nina LaCour and Jandy Nelson."--provided by publisher.

Cass never wondered too much about her biological mother; she loves her adoptive parents fiercely. But the teenager who gave up baby Cass in a closed adoption 18 years ago also left behind something else: a series of letters to the kid.
