Courtney Sheinmel

We were very fortunate this week when Courtney Sheinmel stopped in at the store to talk to us. In this first video clip Courtney talks about her book, My So-Called Family:



In this second video clip, Courtney talks about the project she's working on now, which is called Positively:



And here's my review of the book:
Everyone’s family is different. Leah knows this but has always felt different. Yes, she lives with her mom, stepdad, and brother but she doesn’t know anything about her dad, except that he’s Donor 730 from Lyons Reproductive Service. She loves her family—she really does—but starts to wonder about the other side of her family when her brother starts to make a family tree in school. So she finds LRS on the internet, finds out that Donor 730 has fathered other children, and gets in touch—without telling her mother. This is a very understandable, sympathetic look at what makes up a family, of a young girl’s journey to find out where she came from, and what families mean to us, no matter who or what they are.

It's always good to see you, Courtney. Can't wait to read Positively.

She shares that she's actually wearing my scarf because she wanted to liven up what she was wearing!
