Hollis lives with her mother (her other mother died a while ago). Hollis is contacted by her half-brother (Milo) who she met when she was seven after the death of her mother. Milo wants to track down their father, a sperm donor. He wants to know if she's interested in working with him to do this. Milo is hoping to find answers to help alleviate his allergies. As the story unfolds and they work to find their "dad", they learn they have other step-siblings (Abby, Josh, Noah) from the donor. With the help of Milo's friend (JJ), they work to see if they can locate and meet dad. Through it all they bond and become close. Good story, I took a while to warm up to it but once it got going I loved it. ( )

Family is the other F word and in Hollis and Milo's case, it's a fairly loaded word. Milo and Hollis are the products of their mothers and a sperm donor. Milo reaches out to Hollis, hoping she'll join him on a quest to identify and find their sperm donor so Milo can get answers to questions about his allergies. He locates half siblings Noah and Abby and they're on board, too. The interaction among the half-siblings is wry and jocular and there's a level of suspense as they uncover more and more information on William Bardo. What's revealing about this book is that non-traditional families grapple with issues unique to their structure but like traditional families they experience love, arguments, embarrassing parents, doubts, good times, insecurities, you name it. Entertaining and affirming. ( )

Family, the other f-word, can't live with them, can't live without them. A great story about identity, family, friendship and in the end love. ( )

I won this in a GOODREADS giveaway. The Other F-Word by Natasha Friend is a good read for an older teen... there are several topics that some may find out-of-norm but that is always a good thing. ( )

VOYA Review:
Milo and Hollis only met once, seven years ago, and only because they happened to share the same sperm-donor father. Then, a question from his doctor gives Milo, who has life-threatening allergies, a reason to begin searching for their biological father, and he asks Hollis to join him. Hollis, however, wants nothing to do with the man whose sperm fathered them both. She is angry—about her mom Pam’s death, about how her mom Leigh cannot let go of her grief, and about past hurts that she cannot move beyond. She resists Milo’s efforts but soon finds herself pulled into his search, as together they discover something more than they set out to find. After a slow start, the pace of The Other F-Word smoothly leads readers into the lives of Hollis and Milo and reveals their discoveries about family. Readers will recognize many of the challenges that the characters face, from uncertainty about belonging to family dynamics, friendship, and using escapes, like hooking up and smoking pot, rather than dealing with feelings and fears. Conflicts are glossed over too quickly, limiting readers’ emotional attachment to the characters. The third-person narration, alternating between Hollis and Milo, also adds distance. Although readers would benefit from more finely drawn secondary characters, they are all believable. With genuine dialogue and reactions, the result is an authentic, if incomplete, picture of messy, emotional, and funny teen lives. The story will appeal to teens who enjoy realistic fiction, ( )
