    Book Description: 

    Getting It Right is the story of Kara and Alex, half-sisters who have never met, one the product of an abusive foster-care setting, the other of dysfunctional privilege. The novel is set in Harlem, the Bronx, and the wealthy community of Bedford, New York, during two weeks in March.

    Haunted by crippling memories, Kara falls for the wrong men, tries to help her foster-care siblings suffering from PTSD, and longs for the father and half-sister she only knows from a photograph. Alex, meanwhile, struggles to keep her younger sisters out of trouble, her mother sane, and her marketing business afloat. Now she has a new responsibility: from his hospital bed, her father tasks Alex with finding Kara, the mixed-race child he abandoned. Alex is stunned to learn of Kara’s existence but reluctantly agrees.

    To make things more complicated, Kara loves a married man whom the FBI is pursuing for insider trading. When Alex eventually finds her half-sister, she becomes embroiled in Kara’s dangers, which threaten to drag them both down. If Kara doesn’t help the FBI, she could face prosecution and possible incarceration, and if Alex can’t persuade Kara to meet their father, she will let him down during the final days of his life.

    This novel explores grit and resilience, evolving definitions of race and family, and the ultimate power of redemption and forgiveness.
