Real Families: Adoption Fiction for Teens

I researched, bought and filled out our collection last fall, in response to National Adoption Month in November. Below is a list of novels, mostly YA but some adult, that feature teens who joined their families through adoption. As I get around to writing about individual titles I'll link to those reviews. The list isn't exaustive -- a complete reading list of all adoption-related titles in our library can be found here.
