    It’ll stay with you

    When I was listening to Canada Reads on CBC Radio and heard about this book, I knew I had to read it. It was touted for its subject and its characters. I heartily echo those accolades. Annabel is about Wayne, a hermaphrodite who grows up in a small community in Labrador during the 1980’s. There are so many layers to this book that make it a truly wonderful read. The characters are complex, believable, and memorable. The writing is absolutely beautiful at times – so much so, that I missed a subway stop because I was caught up in a description of the wilderness. And, in my opinion, the exploration of gender, and its nature and nurture is fascinating. Plus the way this book dealt with silence was poignant and true. Really, the only thing I didn’t like about this book is that it had to end.

    Annabel by Kathleen Winter

    Hauntingly descriptive of raw nature of outer world and inner turmoil of an exceptional child growing up in Labrador.

    Sublime

    A rare gem. I recommend this book wholly to all who are, or have been seeking their way in the world. An incredible of storey of courage in the face of the unknown, unmarked journey.

    Good

    This was a bit hard to read because of it being a true story, but definitely glad I did. A real eye opener on this subject that I doubt a lot of people are aware of.
