WINNER of the 2013 Alberta Readers' Choice award!

Top 40 book for Canada Reads 2013!

Rebee Shore’s life is fragmented. She’s forever on the move, ricocheting around Alberta, guided less than capably by her dysfunctional mother Elizabeth.

The Shore Girl follows Rebee from her toddler to her teen years as she grapples with her mother’s fears and addictions, and her own desire 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: of her origins, of her past and present; from darkness and grief, to understanding and hope for a brighter future.

This is a very powerful book that draws you into the world of its main character, Rebee, through various, pivotal points of her young life. The other characters (Jake, Joey, Vic) surrounding Rebee are equally memorable and true to character. Kimmel writes her people and Alberta locations well. A refreshing and thought provoking read!

We read this for our Book Club and had the privilege of meeting with Fran at our meeting. We all really enjoyed her book and had a meaningful discussion of her plot, characters, themes, writing techniques, etc. We especially enjoyed getting a behind-the-scenes point of view from the author herself, she is a delightful lady. We are all looking forward to her next book which is now "in production".
