Ten top books about adopted and fostered children

Keren David's latest book Salvage is about siblings Aidan and Cass who were parted as young children.

One of the author's top ten books about adopted and fostered children, as shared at the Guardian:
The High House by Honor Arundel

Emma and her older brother Richard are orphaned by a car crash, and Emma comes to Edinburgh to live with her Aunt Patsy, an artist who keeps irregular hours, celebrates the occasional cheque with wine and parties with her students. It’s a far cry from prim Emma’s old life in the suburbs, and her slow adaptation to a new way of life is portrayed with heart and skill.
