In Jen Sookfong Lee’s The Conjoined (ECW $18.95), Jessica Campbell sorts through her dead mother’s belongings and makes a shocking discovery – two dead girls curled into the bottom of her mother’s chest freezers. These girls were Casey and Jamie Cheng, page two troubled teenaged sisters from Vancouver’s Chinatown who lived with the family as foster children in 1988. Everyone had simply assumed they had run away. Jessica unearths dark truths that force her to confront her own life and who her mother really was. 978-1-77041-284-2
