806 by Cynthia Weil ~ Release Day 3-18-18~ #YAauthor @tanglewoodpub @mannweil

Sibling 1 throws blenders and plays guitar. Sibling 2 is allergic to everything and is into magic. Sibling 3 is a varsity swimmer with a group of female fans. Enough said. The only thing they have in common is their biological father, and the only thing they can agree on is that they all want to meet him. With the help of a broken-down, “borrowed” Jeep, KT, Jesse, and Gabe make their way across the country evading police, trying their luck on the slots, and meeting a life-changing pig, all to track down Donor 806, their father. Any hope of success requires smarts, luck, and ingenuity. Good thing they have each other…even if they don’t see it that way.

We loved this story! For a YA who lives hallmark type books that make you laugh, cry, and can’t put down… this is the book for you!

A seriously heartwarming story of three teenagers who never thought they would have anything in common! It turns out they do! Donor 806… or at least that’s what they thought. Once they embark on their journey to find their “bio” dad, their real adventure begins. In what I thought was a perfect rendition of a hallmark special to watch on a rainy day under a blanket and a bowl of popcorn, it was a very enjoyable read!
