The Year My Mother Left me
Imogen is 15 years old and lives alone.
Her mother left on a two week business trip...but that was three months ago. She is now half way around the world, dating a Viking, being hunted by mobsters and sporadically updating Imogen via email.
At first Imogen doesn't mind being alone.
Being alone gives her free reign to discover sex, raves and drugs. What more could a teenager want? But soon her bubble bursts- Imogen has no money, a curious child-service agent begins to investigate her case, and she struggles with the deep buried fear that her mother might never actually come back.
On the tracks between childhood and adulthood Imogen finds forbidden love, she finds that even the deepest wounds can heal and eventually she finds herself.
