Since Canada Reads is about finding novels to inspire change, we thought we'd turn to people actually making positive change in the world to share their book recommendations with us!
Here's what Annie had to say when asked to choose a novel that could change our nation:
"This is a range of topics, immigrant stories, mental health, feminism and teenagers.... God knows we need inspiration. There is no dearth of amazing writers in Canada, even choosing a few is difficult."
We put Annie's choices to the Canada Reads test. Since The Handmaid's Tale and In the Skin of a Lion both made appearances in the 2002 edition of Canada Reads, we have three contenders left from Annie's picks.
Cast your vote for the book you think could be the one novel that could change Canada below! The poll will be open until Monday, October 14, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
