Far From the Tree by Robin Benway is a coming of age story between three siblings. Each one has grown up differently and are dealing with difficult family circumstances. The siblings find each other at that crucial time when they need each other the most.
I know that is a short and info lacking description of this book, but I’m sticking to Hannah’s style of review for this one. After watching her video review, I knew I wanted to read this book. I went into it knowing nothing about it or even reading the premise. And I’m so glad I did.
That’s probably the best way to read this book. It focuses on so many family issues and regular life struggles. This isn’t a YA book where the characters are so philosophical they are hardly believable. These characters are REAL, they’re RAW, and that’s the beauty of this book.
After reading Far From the Tree, I doubt I will truly enjoy what other YA novels have to offer.
Far From the Tree by Robin Benway receives 5 stars.
