A young woman serves as a surrogate mother only to discover, ten years after the fact, that she accidentally gave away her own biological child.

 

“It is hard to imagine a better novel for a book club discussion...A thoughtful and gripping family tale that will haunt readers long after finishing it.” ―Kirkus Reviews, STARRED

 

“...a touching and provocative novel about the collisions of the emotional and legal meanings of family.” ―Foreword Reviews

 

“A heartfelt exploration of what it means to be a family, He Gets That From Me is a fascinating story of strength, humanity, love, and perseverance. This is one you won’t stop thinking about.” ―Allison Winn Scotch, best-selling author of Cleo McDougal Regrets Nothing

 

“Compulsively readable and ferociously insightful . . . He Gets That From Me cuts to the core of what it means to be family. An unforgettable book of our times.” ―Jamie Brenner, author of The Forever Summer and Blush

 

He Gets That from Me is a potent reminder that we can’t always choose what life hands us―but we can decide whether to rise to the occasion when faced with seemingly impossible choices. With expert plotting and unwavering empathy toward her characters, Jacqueline Friedland has written a novel as unexpected as it is riveting. I read it in a single sitting.”
―Camille Pagán, best-selling author of This Won’t End Well

 

“Friedland has written characters who are so compelling and so lovable, and then she put them in the middle of such a suspenseful, entirely believable story of what can happen when modern-day technology complicates the most basic relationships between parents and a child. My heart was pounding as I read, far into the night. It's a must-read.”
―Maddie Dawson, best-selling author of Matchmaking for Beginners

 

“Jacqueline Friedland creates a host of complex characters in this nuanced, compelling exploration of what it really means to be a family, and why we should maybe think twice before heading to ancestry.com.”
―Laura Hankin, author of Happy & You Know It and A Special Place for Women
