Don’t Call Me Greta is a poignant story filled with intrigue, adventure and the struggle of family loyalties.
When the police arrest Piper Winslow’s mother, claiming she stole a newborn infant seventeen years ago, Piper is shocked. When she learns she was the baby, her life is destroyed.
Piper’s birth family is about to reclaim her to a life as foreign as the birth name they gave her–Greta. What can Piper do while her world crashes around her? Run, of course.
And run she does. Piper’s plans are nearly foiled when her brother’s annoying best friend joins her. Despite close calls, they elude authorities. All she wants is time to digest her new fate.
Unfortunately, her birth family has unlimited resources and Piper is discovered. She is delivered to a family with a glowing image, but it turns out not all of them are happy to see her.
As Piper tries to cope in her new world, she hits obstacle after obstacle. This family that appears so perfect on the outside, harbors secrets, and nothing is as it seems…
Will she ever be fully accepted?
Will she ever fit in?
Will they ever stop calling her Greta?
Review by Twinsie Angie
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I was excited to try a new trope as I have never read a “stole at birth” novel. Plus, since I enjoy this author writing I was happy to give it a try.
Piper/Greta has a life altering news given to her. When you think you know everything to find out you have been lied too is something else. She is left a mess. She runs away to not have to deal with her “real” family. I am sure anyone would feel this way if they had been found to have been stolen. She leaves with her best friend to try and figure things out.
The story is written so well and when we are given some little foreshadowing about things to come, I was shocked I did not figure things out!! LOL The story was well written and leaves you with lots of tears and emotions.
I loved it the story.
