Summary
This novel of half sisters raised separately—and now united in the midst of danger—is filled with "edge-of-your-seat suspense" (Essence, One of Summer's Best Books). Kara and Alex are half sisters, but they've never met. Kara, the product of an abusive foster-care setting, falls for the wrong men, is haunted by crippling memories, and longs for the family she knows only from a photograph. Meanwhile, Alex was raised in an atmosphere of dysfunctional privilege. She struggles to keep her younger sisters out of trouble, her mother sane, and her marketing business afloat. Now Alex has a new responsibility: from his hospital bed, her father tasks her with finding Kara, the mixed-race child he abandoned. Alex is stunned to learn of Kara's existence, but reluctantly agrees. When Alex eventually finds her half sister, though, she becomes embroiled in Kara's problems, the result of her involvement with a married man who's being pursued by the FBI. If Kara doesn't help the feds, 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. Set in Harlem, the Bronx, and the wealthy community of Bedford, New York, during two weeks in March, Getting It Right explores grit and resilience, evolving definitions of race and family, and the ultimate power of redemption and forgiveness. "Osborne explores questions of race, privilege, and family loyalties without offering any false, easy answers for her two protagonists."—Booklist
