Publisher's Summary

Preview:
A young woman unravels the mystery of her birth and learns about love and forgiveness in Purity, a coming-of-age saga that also takes a hard look at 21st-century investigative journalism and the cult of personality.
At 23, Purity "Pip" Tyler is working in phone sales and struggling to pay back $130,000 in student loans. She has few friends and often tangles with her overbearing and overwrought mom, Penelope. Penelope frustrates her by refusing to identify Pip's father. Pip has searched for clues to her mother's past online and in their cabin in the mountains near Santa Cruz, California, but finds nothing.
Pip lives in Oakland in a foreclosed house belonging to Dreyfuss, a schizophrenic, and his roommates. Among the roommates are a couple of itinerant German activists and Stephen, a married Occupy movement activist. Pip has a crush on Stephen and loosely follows his politics....
