Y

by Marjorie Celona
£7.99   paperback  Faber & Faber (2014)

Y by Marjorie Celona A mesmerising debut that begins with a baby left on the steps of the YMCA and uncovers the true meaning of identity, family and the place we call home.
 
Abandoned as a newborn then bounced between foster homes, Shannon eventually finds stability with Miranda, a single mother with a daughter of her own. But as Shannon grows, so do her questions. Will she ever belong? Who is her true family? And why would they abandon her on the day she was born?
 
When Shannon turns sixteen she decides to go in search of answers. As she will discover, they lie in the heartrending tale of her mother, a headstrong young woman trapped in a series of events that will change her life for ever.
 
Marjorie Celona's debut is a heartbreaking and compassionate story of sacrifice and love, which introduces readers to unforgettable characters and a brilliant new literary voice.
