Me May Mary

Mary Cameron Kilgour

Me May Mary Me May Mary is an eloquent memoir about a teen emerging from a tumultuous past. Beginning with a childhood spent sleeping in cars and stealing money from her violent, alcoholic parents to survive, through her teen years in foster care and an orphanage, Mary struggled to overcome her history and embrace her potential. Recounted without self-pity, this poignant, surprisingly funny book relates one young woman's experience of surmounting the past, making sense of the present, and learning to draw strength from a determined belief in her own future.
