Young Adult

A tale of love-obsession, a young woman’s coming of age during the height of the 1970’s women’s liberation movement.
Teetering on the edge of womanhood, clinging to the first love of her life, 17 year-old Livvy is torn between suppressing herself or claiming her identity and independence. 

When Livvy, lovesick and artistic, spends the summer with the aunt she adores, she crosses paths with a cast of memorable characters in the coastal community of Margaree, Cape Breton Island. While Livvy’s cousins torment her, house renovations disturb her, an annoying young islander tries to befriend and teach Livvy to disco dance, Livvy prepares for the much anticipated arrival of her boyfriend, Kane. 

This deep dive into the dire and agonizing crannies of a love-obsessed young woman will establish Head on Backwards, Chest Full of Sand as a memorable coming of age story. 

For fans of The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing, Lives of Girls and Women, and The Bell Jar, Head on Backwards, Chest Full of Sand immerses the reader in the world of a troubled young woman coming slowly to terms with love, life, and all its messy relationships.
