Where We Belong

This "chick lit" by Emily Giffin was just the antidote I needed to the last difficult, boring book I read.  Giffin writes intelligent though mindless fiction and this one was no exception.  It deals with Marian, who gave a baby up for adoption when she was 18, telling no one of her pregnancy other than her mother.  Eighteen years later, Kirby, shows up on her doorstep, as she feels she doesn't belong with her adoptive family.  After getting over the shock, together they track down Kirby's biological father and bond with her adoptive parents.  There is of course the side story of Marian's current relationship with the CEO of the television station where she works and her unresolved feelings for her high school sweetheart.  Of course everyone figures out where they belong in the end.
