    ePUB Marjorie Celona Ñ Y MOBI â Ñ Y PDF/EPUBI received this book through Goodreads First ReadsI don't think I have ever been so sad to see a book end It caught me by surprise and I must have stared at the last page for 5 minutes before I finally closed the book It was like saying goodbye to a friend that you don't want to lose I grew so attached to the main character that I almost criedOne of my favourite things about this book is the way it was written The narrative is beautiful and 150% suits how you imagine Shannon would think if she was an actual human

    ePUB Marjorie Celona Ñ Y MOBI â Ñ Y PDF/EPUBThis novel is gorgeously written It is told from the point of view of Shannon who as an infant is abandoned by her birth mother on the steps of a YMCA But the narrative also explores the incidents leading up to this moment It's a heart breaking aching sort of story in so many ways but it also forces the reader to examine what makes a family and what defines home The final passages of the

    ePUB Marjorie Celona Ñ Y MOBI â Ñ Y PDF/EPUB“My life begins at the Y” is the first sentence of this brilliant story of a foundling who struggles to make her way in a world not always so friendly or kind Not only did I love the travails and triumphs of this character but I was also captivated by the writing I can wholeheartedly give this book a solid five star rating because it just has so much going for it It’s a uirky story with some very odd characters some likable some not and a plot that just won’t let goThe author flawlessly pulls off the rather difficult present tense while telling not only the present story but also the past tale of the plight of the main character’s mother who ultimately abandons her newborn at the Y The main character is delightfully strange and compellingly sympathetic and like all the characters in this remarkable book refreshingly vividThe strength of the writing pulls the reader along with delicious turns of phrase and fascinating details “At the shorelin
