You know a book is good when you have a reaction. You Were Meant for Me had me feeling all of those new mommy feelings all over again.

I think the characters in this book were amazing. We have three characters that we follow: Miranda, Evan and Jared. Each person adds an development in Miranda's life. Miranda has to decide which friends really support her through everything with finding the newborn. Miranda has to learn that she has to be strong in order to endure all the problems that come with raising a child.

You Were Meant for Me is so much more than learning how to adjust to having a child that is not your own. It's about love, heartbreak, friendship, loss, and dealing with all the things life throws in your way. I think through the ups and downs Miranda finds herself. She learns what she finds important, and how to be comfortable with her actions.

Absolutely loved this book. The descriptive prose is amazing. Miranda is a wonderful character. She's not perfect and sometimes doesn't know her own mind. Her romance with Evan takes a very realistic turn when he assumes she had sex with someone else. The kind of bullshit that happens in real life is handled with grace and elegance. Miranda finds an abandoned baby and wants to keep her. This also doesn't go smoothly but more realistically than some books. I am definitely going to buy some more books from Yona Zeldis McDonough.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451469836, Paperback)

What do you do when you have to give up the person you love most?

Thirty-five-year-old Miranda is not an impulsive person. She’s been at Domestic Goddess magazine for eight years, she has great friends, and she’s finally moving on after a breakup. Having a baby isn’t even on her radar—until the day she discovers an abandoned newborn on the platform of a Brooklyn subway station. Rushing the little girl to the closest police station, Miranda hopes and prays she’ll be all right and that a loving family will step forward to take her.

Yet Miranda can’t seem to get the baby off her mind and keeps coming up with excuses to go check on her, until finally a family court judge asks whether she’d like to be the baby’s foster parent—maybe even adopt her. To her own surprise, Miranda jumps at the chance. But nothing could have prepared her for the ecstasy of new-mother love—or the heartbreak she faces when the baby’s father surfaces....
