Mika In Real Life

The Uplifting Good Morning America Book Club Pick 2022


Brought to you by Penguin.


She's been fired (again). Her last relationship went up in flames. Her fervently traditional mother is perpetually disappointed in her. And now, she's had a phone call from sixteen-year-old Penny Calvin. The baby she reluctantly placed for adoption when she was just a teenager herself.

Mika is desperate to meet her girl. But she barely feels like she can take care of herself.
Is she ready to show Penny who her mother really is?
