I've decided to create a reading blog to show my students at a Toronto boys' school-- who are frequently reluctant readers-- the delight in reading.

MOUTHING THE WORDS by Camilla Gibb (1999)
This is Gibb's debut novel. In it she writes convincingly from the perspective of Thelma, a young girl who has moved from England to Toronto and tries to make sense of her new world. Themes of incest and self-discovery make this book uncomfortable, but important reading.
