Editorial Reviews

Review

“How could I not love a debut about science, secrets, DNA, and how the traumas of our ancestors still live within our very cells? With gorgeous prose, and a deep emotional resonance, The Ones We Choose is about the science of love, how our DNA shapes us, and a mother’s fierce battle to protect her son while confronting what really makes our identity ours, what and who we choose to let in, and what and who we don’t.  An absolutely dazzling, profound ruby of a novel.” (Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and Cruel Beautiful World )

"A novel with a wonderfully smart and strong protagonist, Julie Clark's debut
The Ones We Choose is an impressive and surprising combination of hard science and raw emotion. In this absorbing story of friendship, parenting, and the intensity of the sibling bond, Clark reveals how messy family life can be and how the mess itself might be of great value. An engaging read!" (Amy Poeppel, author of Small Admissions )

"An engaging, heart-felt alchemy of genetics and emotion, THE ONES WE CHOOSE is a unique story that will having you thinking about the true meaning of family and how our heritage silently weaves its way into every choice we make." (Amy Hatvany, author of Outside the Lines )

"This chimera of heart and science skillfully produces an extraordinary breakthrough novel. I love smart fiction with a sharp heroine at the core. Julie Clark has perceptively given us that in
The Ones We Choose. A story of mother and son and the ties that bind, right down to the marrow. Trust me, you're going to want to read this."  (Sarah McCoy, New York Times and international bestselling author of Marilla of Green Gables and The Mapmaker's Children )

"A unique marriage of love and science, Julie Clark’s powerful debut
The Ones We Choose proves family is what we make it. Poignant and captivating, this is a read-in-one-sitting story!"  (Karma Brown, bestselling author of The Choices We Make )
