“a stunning psychological thriller” — Kathy Pooler, Memoir Writer’s Journey

With raw honesty and thoughtful reflection, Laura Dennis crafts a stunning psychological thriller in her true-life memoir, Adopted Reality. She weaves in three major life events—adoption, reunion with her birth mother and a bipolar episode following the 9/11 terror attacks where her beloved Uncle Tom died in the Twin Towers and she believes she was responsible for his death.

I was hooked from the first sentence, “I’ve successfully infiltrated the Illuminati’s West Coast Cell.”

It reads like a novel as she takes the reader along her adventuresome and suspenseful descent into madness and subsequent hospitalization and treatment.

jarring but compelling” — Kirkus Reviews

Dennis opens her debut memoir dressed in a sexy black lace dress in a Southern California restaurant in 2001. She’s convinced she’s a spy who piloted one of the planes that flew into the twin towers on 9/11. She’s there to find the head of the evil Illuminati, but instead she finds an older man in a gray suit who wants to take her to Cuba and impregnate her. After this jarring but compelling opening, the memoir flashes back to her childhood and young-adult years, beginning with her adoption as a baby and eventually, in her early 20s, meeting her birth mother.

… Short, easily digestible chapters offer believable dialogue, succinct descriptions of events and candid observations. The author adds a sense of ongoing drama by often ending chapters with a single, searing line that hints at what’s to come: “And then, whether or not I truly am, convince a judge that I’m sane.”


“It’s a universal story of our flawed humanness” — Monica Lee, The Percussionist’s Wife

Author Laura Dennis’ memoir Adopted Reality tells the story of how expectations of personal perfection inevitably lead to sorrow and failure.

It’s a universal story of our flawed humanness. …

Anyone who is adopted, a dancer or bipolar and anyone who knows and loves such a person will appreciate “Adopted Reality: A Memoir” for its honesty, drama and ultimately the peace Dennis finds with her adopted reality.


“this is a book you can throw yourself into” — Matthew Turner, Beyond Parallel out in 2012

The look into her past is golden. It’s traumatic and devastating, but at times very hopeful. Most of all, it’s real.

If you’re a dreamer and a wanderer, like me, this is a book you can throw yourself into. I believe we’re all pretty close to the line of insane. Most people don’t know it, and those are the people who tend to move through life with a smile. Those lucky bastards.

  1. So glad to have connected today. I'm enjoying your blog and looking forward to reading Adopted Reality!
