On Day Three of Canada Reads 2021, there are three books left in contention. Which book will be eliminated next?

On Day One, Two Trees Make a Forest by Jessica J. Lee and championed by Scott Helman was the first book to be eliminated. On Day Two, Rosey Edeh championed The Midnight Bargain by C.L. Polk, but the book was the next to be removed from contention.
