I absolutely loved this stunning debut novel. O'Connell tells the fascinating story of Maggie, a twentysomething coming to terms with her mother's suicide, while also coping with her own potential psychoses. Her writing style is beautifully poetic, and the cherry on top is her fantastic use of Toronto as the book's setting. O'Connell's love for the city was so clearly apparent in her rich descriptions, especially of the Queen West strip where Maggie lives. I have to say, I'm particularly glad that I purchased the book at Type Books, which is in the same stretch of Queen West where the book takes place!
