The Leavers
The Leavers By Ko, Lisa Book - 2017 | First edition.

This book was read at the same time as the Fiction Title Brother by David Chariandy . There seemed an amazing similarity in terms of social justice, a sense of hopelessness with living conditions, poverty and inequities. Very well written book by Lisa Ko and the title reveals much about the examination of borders and belonging. Very moving story of how a boy comes into his own when everything he loves is taken away and how a mother learns to live with the mistakes of the past.
