I absolutely adore your quest to read 50 Canadian-themed/authored books this year, and I do still identify as Canadian. I've got my certified birth certificate to prove it :) and love visiting Montreal and Toronto when I can. I'd be honored to be included in your 150th celebration. Best, F. (less)

Amy Poeppel does it again with a smart, hilarious story. I loved every page, every character. She sets a complex dance in motion where I never knew quite what was going to happen and the end was SO satisfying. Highly recommended.
