20. The Jungles of Adolescence

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

S.K. Ali, Sigmund Brouwer, Allan Stratton
Moderator: Susin Nielsen

Standing up for what’s right and recognizing your true friends can be a tricky business. Join three authors for a look inside the wilds of adolescence and the paths some forge through that jungle. S.K. Ali’s Saints & Misfits, set within a multicultural Muslim family, features Janna, a ‘misfit’ sophomore with a crush on a non-Muslim boy and the even bigger problem of avoiding the ‘saint’ of the local mosque who, unbeknownst to anyone, assaulted Janna at a friend’s party. After making some bad decisions, Sigmund Brouwer’s 15-year-old Maxwell is on the run. When he impulsively hops aboard a freight train, he embarks on a journey he never expected. And Allan Stratton’s Zoe, fed-up with her narrowminded parents, also heads out on an unforgettable journey where she discovers a strength she didn’t know she had.
