Because yeah I just did that I think I cried in this book four separate times The fact that this is a debut novel FLOORS me This book is a story about a community Scarborough in Toronto and it's told from multiple perspectives I could say this book is redemption and love and resileniece all at once but that doesn't really make a point because Hernandez takes many people in a community and makes you know them and all their little struggles and strife and how they rise against the day to day grind Hernandez takes a community and paints it with a mother's love warts and all This has First Nations representation and disability representation and ueer representationALL the representation All of it tw child abuse domestic abuse substance abuse I loved Laura Sylvie Bing Marie and I'm a mess because her writing was so good I read it in two days
