Christine E. for Giant by Aga Maksimowska

Burlington, ON

This is the author's first novel, written in the voice of a teenage girl, living in Poland with aging grandparents while her separated parents seek to move on with their lives. It is both a funny and poignant view of life in Poland and in Canada from the point of view of a teenage immigrant girl who must make sense and adjust to a a foreign country and to a new domestic arrangement.  I just loved the main character and I believe most readers will also. The book will resonate with may Canadians who immigrated here as children and still had memories of their birthplace.
