Customer Reviews of A Boy of Good Breeding: A Novel


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Canadian Read I love Mariam Toews and this is another good book by her. The characters in this book are memorable and quirky. The Mayor of the smallest town in Canada who thinks the prime minister is his real father and is trying to keep the towns population the same so he can win a visit from him on Canada day. It is a fun book full of wonderful unihibited personalities. I enjoyed it.
