This anthology features stories by Canada’s finest authors who were born in another country and who went through the experience of trying to “fit in.” The stories explore fourteen journeys and their telling incidents, from the shock of first impressions to the writers’ first stirrings of “becoming Canadian” and what that meant to them. The young adult audience is a perfectly tuned readership for this collection, which features such acclaimed and award-winning authors as Linda Granfield, Alice Kuipers, Rachel Manley, Marina Nemat, and Richard Poplak.

About the Author:

Teresa Toten is an award-winning writer who was born in Zagreb, Croatia, but left for Canada on that same day. Although she’s lived in Toronto for most of her life, Teresa has also lived in Delhi (Ontario), Montreal, Ottawa, and New York. She developed her broad taste in reading as a result of her non-English-speaking mother’s habit of filling shopping bags full of books from wildly different sections of the local library. Teresa has twice been shortlisted for the Governor General’s Literary Award, for The Game in 2001 and Me and the Blondes in 2006. Her upcoming novel, Beyond Blonde, will be published by Puffin Canada.
