Klara and the Sun
Why this book?
This book is not one you’d associate with the subject of adoption, but it caught my adopted heart right from the beginning. It opens with Klara, an ‘artificial friend’ waiting in a store and hoping that someone will choose her to go home with them. There turns out to be a certain girl she hopes will choose her to join her family. It’s a beautiful and heartbreaking book that takes place in a futuristic setting, but touches on so many universal truths about love and belonging.
