One of the Toronto Star's top books of the year

A year after watching Leo go through thin ice, twelve-year- old Ferd is obsessed with the idea that he can persuade his dead brother to come home through a campaign of letters. Plaintive notes appear around the house-folded squares of paper in the rain reservoir, kitchen sink, and washing machine. Ferd's mother, Algoma, is also unravelling; attempting to hide her son's letters, reconnect with her increasingly distant husband, and rebuild her life.

"Algoma is a strong debut novel with a haunting landscape, convincing characters and a vivid sense of the haphazard nature of our lives."-National Post

"A very good first novel from a refreshing new voice."-Quill & Quire
