This is an excellent first novel. Even though it is a work of fiction I found it very plausible and complelling reading, I put this down to, not only Heather's writing style but also, the fact that Heather has grown up in Montreal and has obviously observed many of the experiences she has written about. The story really had an impact on me, for example, I was soooo relieved when Baby was finally able to escape Alphonse's clutches, just loved that bit! Well worth reading.

This story was quite sad and an authentic look into the lives of those struggling in the lowest depths of society. Makes you appreciate having a normal upbringing with loving parents.

Thank you jeniwren. The book arrived quickly. This Canadian novel seems to have a great run in your country and is now coming home to Canada.

PS. Thank you for the super cute bookmark and the book label.

Loved it. What happened was heartbreaking and sad. I rooted for Baby the whole time. A compelling and powerful book that will stay with me for a while.

'Wonderful to find this book in our rural mailbox today! I have heard so much about it. Just one thing: I am confused about being told I am the "Winner of the Music Sweepstakes". I was sent an email back in Nov., by bookwormess, with the name and address of someone in Canada - and was told that that person had won the Sweepstakes III. Now, I cannot remember under which Forum category the Sweepstakes thread is (nor even the contest details!!)....so could somebody straighten me out? I am very confused! Thanks! And thank you in the meantime, mcsar for sending me this book all the way from WA, USA.
