Y: By Marjorie Celona

By Marjorie Celona

After being dumped at the door of a local YMCA in nothing but a dirty grey sweatshirt, Shannon grows up motherless, an orphan neglected and abused, forever shunted between foster homes. Her life is in tatters until she finds stability in the home of a single mother, but this newfound love is tainted by questions she cannot answer: Where did she come from? Who is her mother? Why was she abandoned?

TY is the powerful coming-of-age story of one woman and the mother who deserted her. Beautifully written, heartfelt, and unforgettable in its scope, Marjorie Celona’s debut novel captivates from the first page.
