Someone Else's Life by: Katie Dale

This novel was absolutely amazing! I loved the way Katie Dale portrayed the anguish that Rosie Kenning has when she finds out that she was switched at birth and that the mother that raised her and cared for her is not really her mother after all. As she chooses to go on a world adventure with her ex-boyfriend, Andy, to find her birth parents and to face the fact that her whole life has been one huge lie.

Katie Dale also protrays what a family goes through when a loved one dies, and the facing life no matter what decision you make. This is one of my must reads!

I give this book a 5 out of 5!!! One of the best books I have read so far! Be sure to go out and buy it today!

Here is the blurb:
When seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when she tells her mum’s best friend, ‘Aunt Sarah’ that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie was not her biological mother after all... 

Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family's deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own - one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all...
