#7 The Strangers (Katherena Vermette)

After reading The Break (for Canada Reads 2017), I have looked forward to another book by Katherena Vermette. Her words are powerful as she weaves the story of the Stranger Family. My favourite character became Cedar-Sage as I got drawn into the family drama and struggles.

The Strangers is not a “happy tale” but gritty and raw, dealing with addictions and mental health, yet there is hope as Cedar-Sage emerges from foster care, rebuilds relationships and learns about her family history.

Vermette is a brilliant, character-based storyteller who keeps a reader engaged until the end… it would be great to have sequel to follow Cedar-Sage and Phoenix as they move into adulthood.
