To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book is lovely. It offers a wide variety of stories, multiple genres, from a wide variety of perspectives. At the end of each story, the author includes a note about what the story means to them, and how adoption and foster care has touched their lives. There are a LOT of stories, short but satisfying, and from an impressive list of authors (including some of my absolute favorites). I read this book over the course of several months - for when I wanted to read *something* but didn't have a lot of time. I picked up this book, read one or two stories, and had a lovely reading experience.
