    PDF EPUB Y PDF ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk Y PDFEPUBI 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 being She doesn't always describe what's going on in full sentences but when you think about it when does anyone in real life think to themselves in full

    PDF EPUB Y PDF ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk Y PDFEPUBIt seems ironic that the day I choose to read Y is the day this uote comes up on my twitter feed When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters A character is a caricature How right Ernest Hemingway was indeed My galley copy of Y seems to breathe on it’s own Its pages are filled with characters but two or three are so vivid that they aren’t caricatures but real peopleOn my first day working for Penguin Canada there was a uiet hum of “Y” reverberating around the office My ‘cube buddy’ told me that Y is the company’s baby this year; everyone loves it She gave me the run down of the book’s contents and I figure

People are so often incapable of recognising choices They lack a perceptual awareness of their own abilities to influence their own course through their life The novel follows the story of the abandoned baby and her childhood and intersperses it with the story of her biological parents The paths of the characters are littered with

    PDF EPUB Y PDF ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk Y PDFEPUBThis 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 exam

    PDF EPUB Y PDF ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk Y PDFEPUBTruth be told I wrote this book off as something that was slightly out of my intellectual reach Even if the story sounded simple enough I'm shamed to say that I didn't get itI had a completely different opinion after I read it the first time I was unable to get over myself See I get so comfortable with my reading choices that when a book this jarring comes my way I freeze I don't know what to do with myself I've been so stubbornly set on how a character should act or how her story should've been written that when an author writes something incredibly real I'm unable to reactI've been trying to finish this book for than a month now And I've asked myself fruitlessly on numerous times why I've exerted the effort The only reason I could come up with is that I've been intrigued by this book ever since I came across it last year I must admit that while reading this novel I wondered what makes someone's work critically a

    PDF EPUB Y PDF ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk Y PDFEPUB“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

    PDF EPUB Y PDF ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk Y PDFEPUBI found this to be a uiet book not a lot of high drama even when the events could have been told that way like when her foster father beat her The book itself takes on the emotional style of the child; mostly uiet and watchful waiting to see whether the developing circumstances turn out to be good or bad When she allows herself a moment of breaking out of that passivity it turns out to be unpleasant enough to send her back to her default mode The part of the final section in which Shannon and her family are reunited with her bio mom was most interesting to me for her foster mother's assessment of Shannon's characteristics her strengths and weaknesses It's the kind of stuff most 17 year olds would take offense at but Shannon just accepts it actually with pleasure realizing that Miranda had actually been paying so much attention to her The other thing I enjoyed very much was the description of Vancouver Island and Shannon's little field trip to the seedier areas of the city of Vancouve
