Chapter 34. Also by Emily Giffin. I found myself ditching my other projects and sketching out their backstories, until suddenly South Second Street was born (I moved the bar from modern-day Brooklyn to Philly in the seventies).
Like Lowry’s book, Where We Belong deals with adoption, but it is written from a different perspective. Whereas in Find a Stranger, Say Goodbye Natalie meets with her birth mother late in the story, here, in Where We Belong, adoptee and birth mother meet by the end of Chapter One. The rest of the book is about what happens after that. Where We Belong is a deeply absorbing novel and even has some romantic moments, as well as others that made me reach for a box of tissues. The emotional center of the books is Marian and her journey, rather than Kirby’s. Emily Giffin started out in chick lit and I think she has a romantic/happy ending sensibility. I read Marian as having updated her information with the adoption agency because in some part of her she was burdened by these secrets, and she needed to grieve and acknowledge her loss.
I really liked Where We Belong, a story in which Marian must face long buried feelings about a tough decision she made years ago, while Kirby, a high school senior, deals with addressing deep questions about her true identity. For the first time, I was NOT blown away by an Emily Giffin novel. I have read every one that she has written, and always eagerly await her newest one, as I did with "Where We Belong. Unfortunately, this time the payoff was a bit disappointing. The novel starts out slowly (I was bored) and did little to make me care about Marion or Peter or their relationship and histories until, about 70 pages into the book, Kirby arrives.
I smile and bury my cheek against his broad shoulder as he plants a kiss on the top of my head and says, Where to now, Champ? He coined the nickname after I beat him in a contentious game of Scrabble on our third date, then doubled down and did it again, gloating all the while. I laughed and made the fatal mistake of telling him Champ was the ironic name of my childhood dog, a blind chocolate Lab with a bad limp, thus sealing the term of endearment. Marian was quickly relegated to mixed company, throes of passion, and our rare arguments.
