Tell It Like It Is: A List of Fearless Books

In honour of Freedom to Read Week, this is a list of Canadian books that stand out for being powerfully—even ruthlessly—honest and brave. Whether fiction or non-fiction, serious or funny (or both), the books on this list share one trait: they deal with important issues (depression, murder, inequity, disability, persecution, sex, gender, identity, family, etc.) in fearless ways that could only happen in a country that values free expression and thinking. We're talking about you, Canada.
