Apocalypse for Beginners by Nicolas Dickner

I liked this book. It was a cute story, a quick read. It’s Canadian, set in Rivière-du-Loup. I identified with Hope the main character. Specifically her love of David Suzuki. The story is about two young peoples journeys through the 1990’s and Hope’s families obsession with the end of time. This book shows mental illness through a young girls eyes, it’s honest and funny.

I’ve read Nikolski by Nicolas Dickner a few years ago when it won Canada Reads and enjoyed it.
