My Choice For Canada Reads 2017 – The Break by Katherena Vermette

Canada Reads 2017 asks us: “What is the one book Canadians need right now?”

Definitely this one.

My top choice this year is The Break by Katherena Vermette. It is a gripping novel told predominantly through the voices of the Indigenous women who make up this haunting story.

From the moment I opened it, I was pulled in to a cold wintery evening in Winnipeg’s North End, and was kept drawn in until I turned the last page. A thrilling read that left me both heartbroken and inspired.

I look forward to watching Candy Palmater champion it on Monday!
