“It’s easy to see why adoption is such a powerful source of storytelling,” writes author Kate Hamer. “Mystery. Multiple identities. Families turned inside out.” There is a great potential for drama in adoption, which is why authors across time and nationality have woven it into their plots. Additionally, kids love to engage with fictional characters who resemble them in some way, so children who were adopted may be particularly taken with characters who were adopted. Hamer put together a list of her favorite books featuring adopted children.
