I Was 17 When My Mother Disappeared
Kat Connor: "I was 17 when my body changed seemingly overnight, flesh and blood and raging hormones. But then, one night that summer, everything changed. I was 17 when my mother disappeared. One day she was there, cleaning, making dinner, then the next, she was gone. There were times when I thought she was going mad, that she was going to burn the house down. The beautiful woman she once was became a phantom, wandering away in a snowstorm."Kat reflects on the events that pushed her and her mother away when she was a teenager. She went from being a hormonal teenager to growing up very fast when her disturbed mother disappeared.
