Great information and message for young readers to learn about racism. I found the book longer than necessary to get the point across and the plot a bit unbelievable near the end. Really enjoyed the characters.

WOW! I was a Margaret Atwood virgin, and I think I'd like more. Beautiful writing, scary plot (with enough holes to allow me to still sleep at night), and a fascinating study of human sexuality from both the male and female perspective.

I read this quickly yesterday in order to help facilitate a YA book club discussion for my daughter's group. Considering I cried steadily from about the 2/3 mark, and even sobbed out loud a couple of times, I'd say I felt the author did a wonderful j ...more

What I really liked about this book was how it showed behind the scenes of places that not everyone goes. Or that not everyone wants to see. It's important that we look in those places to gain more understanding rather than passing judgement without ...more

A refreshing new voice in Canadian literature. The Figgs is a glimpse into the life of a fictional family of characters that could be anybody's real family. Readers are dropped into scenes that show the humour in the mundane and traumatic moments, as ...more

My least favourite from this author. I liked the premise and I think I smiled a couple of times, but it wasn't the laugh-out-loud funny that I was hoping for. A good, easy, light beach read though.

The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver

Interesting that this was first published thirty years ago while issues like immigration, teen pregnancy and child abuse still feel relevant today. "But it just goes on and on, there's no end to it." (page 170)

I love the author's portrayal of the nai

Hi Dot, Yes, I recommend go deeper on your own stories. I would love to hear more about any of the interesting times and topics of your life -- childhood experiences, teaching experiences, social work, living with a disability -- and less about the names, dates and activities of the family tree unless they are directly related to your story and experience. But I do think it is awesome for your whole extended family that this history has been recorded!

Dot Day Thank you for your kindness interviewing my book. I can see that it does need some developmental editing. Any suggestions? do not post your review. Thank you.
