The Shore Girl
A NovelBook - 2012
Rebee Shore's life is fragmented. She's forever on the move, ricocheting around Alberta, guided less than capably by her dysfunctional mother Elizabeth. This novel follows Rebee from her toddler to her teen years as she grapples with her mother's fears and addictions, and her own desires for a normal life. Through a series of narrators -- family, friends, teachers, strangers, and Rebee herself -- her family's dark past, and the core of her mother's despair, are slowly revealed. The Shore Girl is a mosaic of Rebee Shore's adolescence: of her origins, of her past and present; from darkness and grief, to understanding and hope for a brighter future.
