An invaluable piece of truth!

J S Lee’s Keurium captures the lived experience of a transracial adoptee and covers an abundance of themes and challenges that many international adoptees face – often on a daily basis. Beautifully written and hard to put away, Shay’s story pulled me in from the get go and stayed on my mind even after putting the book down. I squirmed and cried and celebrated her personal growth with her. Even though Shay is a fictional character, I could very much relate to this woman, who is portrayed with so much depth that I have felt the author’s own essence and emotions in this authentic character. Accompanying Shay’s struggle to stand true to herself while being seized by a toxic environment is an inspiring journey I recommend every adoptee and non-adoptee to take.
