I just finished Annabel by Kathleen Winter. One of the five CBC Canada Reads contenders. This story was about a kid with an identity crisis living in a small Canadian rural town. It was heartbreaking and powerful. It was well written, all the character’s story-lines were weaved together seamlessly. You know it’s a good story when you start to care about the characters. It will be a tough one to beat.
Now I’m beginning the last book, The Year of The Flood by Margaret Atwood. One I have started to read before but put it down after chapter one, worth another try.
