Canada- be proud such a poignant book can be celebrated

  

Thursday saw the final day of debates for this year’s Canada Reads, and it certainly did not disappoint. With Kristin Kreuk, Craig Kielburger, and Martha Wainwright entering the final show as free-agents, Lainey Lui and Cameron Bailey made their final pitches to sway their fellow panellists in the deciding vote.
When it came time to cast the ballots, however, the decision was almost unanimous. Despite a fierce performance by Lainey, Raziel Reid’s YA novel When Everything Feels like the Movies was voted off. This meas that, Ru, Kim Thúy’s poetic novel about immigrating to Canada as a child has won Canada Reads 2015.(CBC)
