PIECE BY PIECE

Edited By Teresa Toten
Published by Penguin Books

…an important collection of stories

– CBC Radio One

This new anthology features stories by some of Canada’s finest authors who were born in another country and who went through the experience of trying to “fit in.” Exploring the time and incidents, dating from the shock of first impressions to the author’s first stirrings of “becoming Canadian” and what that meant to them, the young adult audience is a perfectly tuned readership for this collection.

Whether the teens were born in Canada or not, both the newly arrived and young adults share a powerful desire to fit in, to be accepted.
