Read & Download ¸ Autofocus á PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook From the author of The Night We Said Yes comes a fun and heartfelt YA contemporary tale When Maude decides to search for information about her birth mother she finds out than she expected Perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Susane ColasantiFamily It’s always been a. You don t make a photograph just with a camera You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen the books you have read the music you have heard the people you have loved Ansel AdamsLauren Gibaldi an American author pens a sweet yet poignant YA contemporary novel Autofocus that revolves around a young girl trying to find the story about her birth mother for a special family related photography assignment and in her uest she goes back to her best friend for help but success doesn t always comes easily thereby landing her up into the way of challenges that is often romantic and at times heart breakingly painful Synopsis FamilyIt s always been a loaded word for Maude And when she is given a senior photography assignment to create a portfolio that shows the meaning of family she doesn t uite know where to begin But she knows one thing without the story of her birth mother who died when Maude was born her project will be incompleteSo Maude decides to visit her best friend Treena at college in Tallahassee Florida where Maude s birth mother once lived But when Maude arrives she uickly discovers that Treena has changed With a new boyfriend and a packed social calendar Treena doesn t seem to have time for Maude or helping Maude in her searchEnter Bennett a cute guy who lives in Treena s dorm He understands Maude s need to find her mother And as Bennett helps Maude in her search she starts to find that her mother s past doesn t have to define her own futureLauren Gibaldi has crafted a beautiful and timely coming of age story that poses the uestion Is who we are determined at birth or can we change as we grow Maude a high school teenager needs to find out about her deceased birth mother Claire for a family related photography assignment and for that she visits her best friend Treena in Florida State University where Claire too attended her classes Unfortunately for Maude instead of finding out about her mother she is forced to attend parities and social meaningless gatherings with Treena and her new boyfriend To rescue Maude Bennett a cute nerdy Treena s dorm mate steps in to help Maude find out about her mother s teenage life And little did Maude knew that she imagined a rather cleaner and decent version of her mother while finding out about her life and about the things she did Meanwhile a sweet innocent romance somehow blossoms between Bennett and Maude and surprisingly Maude too manages to reciprocate her feelings despite of her no emotional attachments demeanor Having read the previous book The Night We Said Yes by the author I wasn t expecting much from this book as the last book disappointed me a lot And surprisingly this book turned out to be pretty decent although the story is cliched and stereotypical but the emotions play a huge part to make all the wrongs into right Most above all the flawed yet corny protagonist stands out in the story and will make the readers ache for her troublesThe author s writing is strong and very polished laced perfectly with enough emotions that will move the readers deeply The narrative style of the author is free flowing and articulate and with an evocative prose the pacing is slow at times but moderate most of the times The story opens a bit slow right in the beginning then it gradually picks up speed and eventually the readers will finally find losing themselves into the depth of the storyThe characters in the book are really good and well developed The main character is flawed multi layered and kind yet independent that gives her a modern fierce teenager outlook Her realistic demeanor while facing through life s pretty grim challenges will make the readers fall for her The rest of the supporting characters are also well etched out but not that impressiveThe romance part was okay not that extraordinary or compassionate enough to make the readers feel for the love In a nutshell the story is compelling and real yet it could have been much better if the story was little less clichedVerdict A coming of age hopeful story about a teenager s search for her dead mother s life Courtesy Thanks to the author s publicist for giving me an opportunity to read and review this book

This review was originally posted on Rebel Mommy Book BlogTruth time I put off this book because by the time I was ready to pick it up I had seen a lof of meh to bad reviews and decided I just didn t have time for it Fast forward to ARC August and me trying to clean out some old ARCs sitting around I tried another that got bad reviews and I had put off and that was a DNF 16% Then I decided to try Autofocus and so glad I did because I really enjoyed itAutofocus is about Maude got I love that name who spurred on by a photography project about family decideds to find out about her birth mother Since her mother went to Florida State University one of the only things she really knows and her best friend goes there as well she decides to spend her fall break with her friend and also researchingI feel like in those meh to bad reviews a lot of criticism was for Maude as a character I had no issues with her at all I actually liked her and found her relatable I also loved her friendship with Treena While Maude is still in high school Treena is a freshman in college They find out you can change a lot in college whether you mean to or not I totally was able to understand both girls and their reactions to their time together and how each has changed I was glad they were able to work through their issuesAlso there was a sweet romance with Maude and Bennet again love the name Since Treena is busy Bennet who is a friend if hers helps Maude with some of her research about her mother They clearly had chemistry from the get go and I liked how they played outThe family aspect with her adoptive parents as well as with her search for information on her birth mother was really interesting and I thought handled well I don t feel like I have read a lot of books that feature adoption as a main focus so it was something different for me subject wiseOverall I thought it was well paced interesting and hit on some good topics such as family friendships and sweet relationships
