Crow
Crow | Amy Spurway
5 posts | 2 read | 3 to read
When Stacey Fortune is diagnosed with three highly unpredictable -- and inoperable -- brain tumours, she abandons the crumbling glamour of her life in Toronto for her mother Effie's scruffy trailer in rural Cape Breton. Back home, she's known as Crow, and everybody suspects that her family is cursed. With her future all but sealed, Crow decides to go down in a blaze of unforgettable glory by writing a memoir that will raise eyebrows and drop jaws. She'll dig up "the dirt" on her family tree, including the supposed curse, and uncover the truth about her mysterious father, who disappeared a month before she was born. But first, Crow must contend with an eclectic assortment of characters, including her gossipy Aunt Peggy, hedonistic party-pal Char, homebound best friend Allie, and high-school flame Willy. She'll also have to figure out how to live with her mother and how to muddle through the unsettling visual disturbances that are becoming more and more vivid each day. Witty, energetic, and crackling with sharp Cape Breton humour, Crowis a story of big twists, big personalities, big drama, and even bigger heart.

3 ⭐⭐⭐ Good story although some of the sarcasm, trash talking, joint smoking, alcohol drinking, sex talking and doing all the time got a bit too much, too drawn out for me. 🤷 #CanLit

Penny_LiteraryHoarders @erzascarletbookgasm the rice looks it but it's actually not! It's spicy rice looks like Biryani. Which I also love. Was so delicious! Fattoush salad. Chicken shawarma and spicy rice. 5mo

Beautiful! I went to the same high school as the author. Amy nails Cape Breton as only a Caper can. I was transported back to home by her writing. She made me homesick and immensely proud to be from that magnificent island.
