9781439193969: Ordinary Beauty

Lauded by critics and authors for her heartbreakingly real heroines, Laura Wiess brings readers another devastating tale of betrayal and redemption rich with the raw emotion that made Such a Pretty Girl a classic.

How can you make someone love you when they won’t?

And what if that person happens to be your mother?

Sayre Bellavia grew up knowing she was a mistake: unplanned and unwanted. At five months shy of eighteen, she’s become an expert in loneliness, heartache, and neglect. Her whole life she’s been cursed, used, and left behind. Swallowed a thousand tears and ignored a thousand deliberate cruelties. Sayre’s stuck by her mother through hell, tried to help her, be near her, be important to her even as her mother slipped away into a violent haze of addiction, destroying the only chance Sayre ever had for a real family.

Now her mother is lying in a hospital bed, near death, ravaged by her own destructive behavior. And as Sayre fights her way to her mother’s bedside, she is terrified but determined to get the answer to a question no one should ever have to ask: Did my mother ever really love me? And what will Sayre do if the answer is yes?

Description du livre MTV Books, United States, 2011. Paperback. État : New. Original.. Language: English . Brand New Book. My name is Sayre Bellavia, and for seventeen years my mother s loved her addiction more than she s loved me. More than she s even likedme, actually, because I m the one who ruined her life. Her words, not mine. So I learned a long time ago how to lay low and act like I want nothing, expect nothing and hope for nothing so I don t become more trouble than I m worth, because I guess I m pretty easy to abandon. And neglect, and betray. My mother says I should take what I get and be satisfied, but what I get is nothing, and what I want is everything: To be safe and loved, to have a real home and a father and a last name that s connected to someone, somewhere. I want to know if my mother ever thinks about Beale and Ellie and that terrible, beautiful year we were happy. I want to know if she ever loved me, even for just one second, and if after all the pain and tragedy her addiction has cost us, if I even still love her, and so I will fight my way back to her, crossing all our boundaries and resurrecting the forbidden until I find out because if I don t the wail inside me will never end, and then history is bound to repeat itself. And God, I don t want to be her. I want a future. N° de réf. du libraire FLT9781439193969
