My Secret Sister, a true story of twins separated at birth, was a good read, but a difficult one. I also review three children's books including Annie's Cat is Sad, Blue Baboon FInes Her Tune and Room for More by Michelle Kadarusman.
Two picture books both with the same message - follow your dreams, be yourself and just dance.
Jennifer Dance's latest book, gone but still here, hooked me from the first sentence. Each chapter tells more of the story from the point of view of characters such as Mary, living with dementia, and Sage, the wise golden retriever who proves humans just don't get it.
Harvey Takes the Lead, Northwind, Anzu The Great Kaiju and Does a Bulldozer have a Butt? Middle grade and picture books reviewed.
FIght Like a Girl by Sheena Kamal is set in Toronto and features "hella fierce," Trisha, a 17-year-old Muay Thai kickboxer who begins to suspect something is going on at her house.
Another great book from Wesley KIng, this one with a young man trying to deal with OCD alone until he meets someone who may see right through him. Also reviewed, the latest by Nadia Marks, and a hockey picture book.
