Shelves: canadian, favorites
Really good book I loved the writting style, the story was well crafted and told through the thoughts of 10 to 16 year old. So strange reading about how people in these small northern Canadian towns live even during the 60s seems more like a life one would experience in the 20s. I think the book is focused towards a more YA audience but some things that happen are a little hard or depressing to read especially from that view point, assaults, alcoholism, animal deaths etc.
