I felt that the characters were relatable, though I didn't necessarily agree with all of their decisions. Talk about shocking and mini heart attacks. Smoothly enough that I believe she broadened her reading audience by the small maneuver. She IS talented, but she didn't use her talent as well as in the past in this one.

Ah, but then came the ending which left me feeling as if someone started to tell me a secret, and then didn't finish the sentence. They had moments of jealousy and a few eblong human emotions but they quickly quashed those feelings for the good of everyone, which was both unrealistic and boring.
Where We Belong
We watch as Kirby, who has traveled nearly 1, miles from her St. If you have to explain it and it will offend the people reading your book in an entire state, how about if you just say "loser" instead and leave it at that? Marion is incredibly unlikable and unrelatable. It was ok, but only because the middle to near the end were really fun.
As I said I was prejudiced about the story, because the main theme in the book is the relationship between and adopted girl and her birth mother… but I also thought I more hiffin less liked all previous novels from this author so, why not?
‘Where We Belong’ by Emily Giffin
I do not read what is generally called "chick lit" a term i find rather disconcerting but wanted to give her books a chance. Seriously, isn't that what reviewing is supposed to be about anyways? Kirby was more annoying to me than she was likely supposed to be and the entire second half went exactly where you thought it would. Even though her fifth novel, Heart of the Matter, is my favorite of her's, this is one story, I think everyone can love, and I think it is tied for first because they are such different stories.
Marion is incredibly gitfin and unrelatable Contains Spoilers I have been a long emmily fan of Emily Giffin's books.
Giffin has some idea of the importance of place, and also of music. I didn't feel like we really got to know this shallow woman - perhaps because half of the book was written from Kirby's point-of-view.
Can we just go back to a time when we could all play nicely in the sandbox together? If you think you may enjoy reading adoption through the eyes of a chick-lit writer, then add Where We Belong to your TBR list.
Where We Belong by Emily Giffin
I will definitely re-read this again. View all 5 comments. I especially loved the alternating points of view Refresh and try again. I felt that the characters were whete, though I didn't necessarily agree with all of their decisions.
The book goes back and forth between the two characters - each narrating a chapter.
That being said, Where I Belong was a rather contrived, simplisitic story. Thank you for signing up! Our main character, Kirby, has an adoptive family that of course! I have zero complaints about this book and that's saying a lot.
However, I thought things turned out quite well for Kirby, as ultimately, this was her story and her journey.
Now Marian, the Mom, has kept her daughter a secret from everyone. Talk about emoly and mini heart attacks. Sep 25, Sarah rated it really liked it. Hardcover1st Editionpages. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. There's the wrong man! That's not to say I don't think that upper class people don't deserve books about their lives and struggles, I do, it's just that I saw Giffin's talent and was hoping that someday she'd try her hand at writing a book with characters I could more easily relate to.
Kirby and Marion get to know each other, slowly.
