In Search Of Us Reviews

  • Charley Cook

    In Search Of is the parallel love story, told by a mother and daughter when they are aged just seventeen. Marilyn is new in Los Angeles, pushed into the spotlight by her fame hungry mother but still living in the poverty of hopefulness. Angie feels suffocated by her mothers grief, torn apart by her mothers protective gaze and her need to know her fathers roots.

    As you flip between the views of Marilyn and Angie you begin to see not only correlations but cause and consequence of actions years befo

    “The funny thing about beauty, James writes, is that in no way does its presence negate the truth of suffering, of injustice, of pain, but it does stand stalwart in its own right, as its own truth.”


    This was my first book by Dellaria and I actually quite enjoyed it, when I went into it I wasn't sure what to expect but I really liked it, the writing was really good, I found I struggled to put it down at times because it just flowed so well. My favourite thing about this whole book that it was se ...more

    I got sent this book in exchange for a honest review, all my opinions are my own and thank you so much to the publishers for sending me this book!

    Not a book for me.

    The book was okay and quite fast paced but I wasn't attached to the characters or the plot of the book and that really upset me cause I really wanted to love it!

    Rating: 4.5 Stars

    I had wanted to read this book for many reasons. One, I really enjoyed Love Letters to the Dead. Two, I love multigenerational stories. Three, coming of age tales always work for me. Four, I never pass up a good romance. I am not quite sure what I was expecting from this book, but it delivered a total feelsplosion and was so beautifully tragic, I am kind of choked up right now just thinking about it.

    •Pro: I wasn't sure at first, but I grew to love the alternating timeline. Contr

    When his eyes met hers and she "snapped" her picture, it was her own version of love at first sight.


    Overall: This was a an utterly exquisite experience for me. This book was fraught with emotion and meaning and so many wonderful characters to love. It tugged on my heartstrings, and made me weep, but it also made me smile.

    I wasn't ready for something so beautiful.

    Told in two timelines, we follow Marilyn's romance with her neighbor, who is a black boy, while she struggles to follow her mother's dream and bear with her uncle's addiction to gambling. And we also follow her daughter's search for her father eighteen years later, having been lied to a whole life Angie comes across an article on her uncle, who was supposedly dead. Now she has a chance to travel all the way to LA, even if she has to beg her ex-boyfriend

    Oh gosh, this story was incredibly and beautifully written.

    So, the book is about Marylin and Angie who is mixed race. A mother and her daughter. Set in two different time frames, it follows both of their stories, intertwining beautifully, to tell the story of how they came to where they are now.

    I don't want to get too detailed about the synopsis, so I'll leave it at that.

    The tone of the story was just sad, full of melancholy and hope and the attachment got deeper as I read on. The type of feeli

    RESEÑA EN ESPAÑOL

    Actual Rate 3.5

    Ava's (author of Love Letters to the Dead) new book was released in México and other Latin-America countries first. It'll be out in the USA (and the rest of the world, I guess) next month and you should definitely read it then.

    In Search Of Us is Angie's story, she's an African-American seventeen-year-old girl who grew up without a father. Her mother, a white woman, has never been able to tell her much about him without crying.

    I must admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Love Letters to the Dead - I read it while I was in hospital, and I literally can’t remember a thing about it aside from the fact that I struggled to finish it. But now I’m thinking I might try it again, because In Search of Us is one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking books I’ve ever read. It made my heart soar and then drop and then break, and I am going to shove it in everyone’s faces because I love it so much.
