NETBA Review: Salvage by Keren David

Aidan Jones was my brother. But I couldn't remember his face.

Cass was adopted at an early age and life's been comfortable ever since - too comfortable, some might say.

I glance at the paper. There's a picture on the front page. I sit down and stare at Cass. It's her. My stolen sister.

Aidan's disrupted childhood has been spent shuttling between foster care and children's homes, with a brief disastrous return to his birth mother.

Their experiences couldn't be more different, but their paths are about to converge. Aidan manages to track down his lost sister, and they arrange a secret meeting. But neither of them have really thought this through.

Can a broken family be salvaged?

Salvage is one of those hard-hitting books that really makes you think and challenges your own beliefs.

It's about two people who came from the same place but have ended up in two very different places. And at times it's pretty heart-breaking.

I really loved the whole Nature vs Nurture idea that lurked in the background, how it was subtly explored without becoming the main focus of the story.

The cast of characters in this story is pretty diverse. You get someone to love, someone to hate, someone to root for, someone to hope for. And it's fantastic. You could really get invested in the characters, get deeper into the plot of the story, the lives of Cass and Aidan.
