it was amazing
bookshelves: canadian, 2013-books, effing-awesome, owned
Read from June 27 to 29, 2013


this was my third time reading a complicated kindness and i think it gets better each time. the way toews captures the voice of 16-year-old nomi is incredible. sure she's wise and precocious but she's also still a kid and toews gets her voice so right. i don't want to say too much here as one of my groups is about to do this read together.

it's a great novel to read over canada day long weekend.
