Angela’s still thinking about this one.
Kim here. I think the book that best describes me is Alice, I Think by Susan Juby. Alice is lost, cynical and lives in a Northern town. It felt like me as a teen when I read it. It is also a very, very funny book.
I related to Alice and all she sees and deals with. She also found the humour in it all.
I had the great pleasure to meet Susan Juby in Nanaimo in March. One of the highlights of my career. I adore her writing and characters and I also adore her as a person. The whole Alice series is a great read for all teen gals. They will connect, relate and know they are not alone. What a good thing!
(Peg here) Dare I say Women Who Run With The Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes? This book has been grossly misunderstood: it’s about connecting with your inner creative power, whatever form that may take. Yes, I’m still learning, but at least now I know where the wolves are, even though I can’t run that fast – yet.
