Synopsis: An eighteen-year-old Australian girl begins searching for clues to the identity of the mother she never knew and uncovers startling things about herself.

From School Library Journal: Grade 7-10-- At 18, Ruby is no longer satisfied with the fleeting image that her adopted father, Rob, has given her of her long-deceased mother, Emma. She investigates Emma's mysterious past and discovers her real father's identity. Along the way she finds her own direction. This book suffers from abrupt shifts in focus. In the beginning, it is a typical story of an isolated teenager looking for love and a positive self-image. Her closest advisor has been Miranda, an inner voice/imaginary friend who has guided her for years, but who now cannot be trusted. Then the question of ``Who was Emma?'' takes center stage. Rob is suddenly left behind. Ruby essentially re-creates herself as Emma, cutting herself off from one life to discover a new one. The Australian and New Zealand settings are vividly described, but present some problems. Many slang phrases are unclear in context. Another troubling aspect involves the close relationship between Rob and Ruby. Ruby is accused of not wanting Rob to get married because she wants him for herself. Although nothing is explicit, they do end up together, with Rob breaking his engagement and preparing to become part of Ruby's new life. However, the search for self, the central theme, is well developed and intriguingly realized. Not a first choice, but a book that has a place in larger collections. --Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, County of Henrico Public Library, Richmond, VA
