You Again
You Again | Mary Burns
1 post | 1 read
The third in a trilogy that began with Shinny's Girls (Talon, 1989), and continued with Flashing Yellow (Turnstone, 2001), You Again brings to a crescendo the eccentric family saga of a single mother and her three daughters by three different fathers. What makes us who we are? This question thrums in the background as grandson Matthew tries to escape an identity theft scam, and daughter Elfie's pregnancy forces Shinny to reveal a long held secret. Praise for the Shinny's Girls novels: ""I really liked Shinny. I was absorbed. You get a wonderful sense of the reality of these people."" Peter Gzowski, CBC Radio ""Superb... The whole life of an uncommon woman."" Books in Canada ""Elegantly captures the remarkable way in which Family has been redefined in the 21st century in North America."" Julie Cruikshank, author of Do Glaciers Listen?

Kaye “What a glorious morning ! Do you know the world could end at any moment ? Are you prepared ? Take this pamphlet “ .....................it‘s your turn, Fredrick. That‘s what you say to get your foot in the door. Bring the kid to make us look better. Gotta recruit more folks for our Flock. 12mo

julesG This is really creepy. And I'd like to know what those men and the creepy boy were up to. Wall-E and Eve is cute! 11mo
Kaye @MinDea I‘m well experienced in those people showing up at our door. They always travel in twos and drag a kid along. They‘re like cockroaches. You never get rid of them. I‘ve done everything but call the cops. That‘ll be next. If i want to attend church there‘s one 2 minutes‘ walk from my house that doesn‘t tell me to prepare for World‘s End. AND doesn‘t hand out Grape Koolaid. (edited) 11mo
