Description

Life is never as perfect as it seems.

Tensions that have lurked beneath the surface of a shiny new subdivision rise up, in new fiction from the author of the Toronto Book Award-short-listed The Wondrous Woo

The suburbs of the 1970s promised to be heaven on earth - new houses, new status, happiness guaranteed. But in a Scarborough subdivision populated by newcomers from all over the world, a series of sudden catastrophic events reveals that not everyone's dreams come true. Moving from house to house, Carrianne Leung explores the inner lives behind the tidy front gardens and picture-perfect windows, always returning to June, an irrepressible adolescent Chinese Canadian coming of age in this shifting world. Through June and her neighbors, Leung depicts the fine line where childhood meets the realities of adult life and examines, with insight and sharp prose, how difficult it is to be true to ourselves at any age.
