Summary "In this unputdownable story of nature, nurture, and coming to terms with one's true inheritance, the author, introducing her deeply dysfunctional yet fiercely loving family that is anything but "normal," reveals how a colorful cast of characters were thrown together by chance and DNA"-- Provided by publisher.
What is a "normal family," and how do you go about making one? Bilton's mother, Debra, yearned to have a child, but as a single gay woman in 1980s California she had few options. Bilton was conceived through a sperm donor, who would make regular appearances at the family home over the years. As a young adult Bilton discovered a shocking revelation with far-reaching consequences not only for her family but for dozens and possibly hundreds of unsuspecting families across the country. Bilton provides an emotional roller coaster of a memoir will make you cry, laugh, and rethink the meaning of family. -- adapted from jacket
