About a Girl (Metamorphoses, #3)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Eighteen-year-old Tally is absolutely sure of everything: her genius, the love of her adoptive family, the loyalty of her best friend, Shane, and her future career as a Nobel prize-winning astronomer. There's no room in her tidy world for heartbreak or uncertainty—or the charismatic, troubled mother who abandoned her soon after she was born. But when a sudden discovery upends her fiercely ordered world, Tally sets out on an unexpected quest to seek out the reclusive musician who may hold the key to her past—and instead finds Maddy, an enigmatic and beautiful girl who will unlock the door to her future. The deeper she falls in love with Maddy, the more Tally begins to realize that the universe is bigger—and more complicated—than she ever imagined. Can Tally face the truth about her family—and find her way home in time to save herself from its consequences?

“My name is Atlanta, and I am going to be an astronomer.”

This was an okay story, but it was just as weird as the previous two books in the series.

Tally was intent on finding her father, and I couldn’t really blame her. As Aurora’s daughter, she had been dumped on the doorstep of the main character from book 1 – who was still nameless, so I’ll continue calling her Jane – and basically just abandoned. As if knowing that your mother abandoned you wasn’t enough, she also had no idea who her father was.

“My biological mother, Aurora, ran off right after I was born, which is unfortunate, but I’ve had seventeen years and three hundred and sixty-four days to accustom myself to her untimely departure.”

The storyline in this was pretty much about Aurora going off in search of her father, which basically involved running off on her own, and letting Jane worry about her! There was also some kissing going on with another girl called Maddy, but very little was actually discovered about the identity of Tally’s father.

“Then she kissed me and I kissed her back, fierce and hungry,”

The ending to this was once again a bit of a non-ending, with lots of questions left unanswered.
6 out of 10.
