JENNY FITZGERALD HAS been outside the huddle, trying to fit in to her sports-obsessed family. The only time she knows the score is when she's holding an egg-carton palette and painting on a canvas, but even then she feels as though something is missing.Unlike her three younger siblings, Jenny knows her biological father only as Donor #142. As Jenny's 16th summer draws to a close, she feels more alienated than ever. But then a chance meeting with gorgeous über-jock Tate leads Jenny to reach out to someone else who might know exactly how she feels. With Tate by her side, Jenny searches for a genetic relative in the Donor Sibling Registry and discovers that she has a half sister, Alexa. Jenny hopes their budding relationship will fill the gaps in her life, but when Alexa shows up on her doorstep for a surprise visit, the changes in Jenny's world are much bigger than she could ever have imagined.From the Hardcover edition.

I really wanted to like this story about a girl whose mom used anonymous donor sperm to get pregnant, and the girl's discovery of a sibling through the Donor Sibling Registry. I'm sorry to say that I found the secondary characters to be virtual cardboard cut-outs, the situations mostly unbelievable. Franklin seems to be trying too hard for an interesting plot. Still, I'm glad to see a donor-conceived kid in a book, any book.

Very good. Jen has known all her life that she was part of the family because of Donor #142. She feels something is missing and that she is out of sorts with her family. She likes Tate from afar and he shows up at her house to 'visit' with her brother. They start seeing eachother and Tate talks her into trying to find out if she has any other half siblings out there. She searches the internt and gets an email from a girl that has Donor #142 as a father. Alexia comes to meet Jen and her family but things don't go as well as Jen thought they would. See how Jen reconciles with Alexia and Tate and her family.
