I read the entire book in one sitting yesterday and throughout I kept thinking, "Betty Jane Hegerat will one day be one of Canada's best known authors." Her writing is smart, and somewhat wry, and she tells a great story. I didn't know how I would feel about fiction and nonfiction woven together, but she is so skilled in both types of writing that the whole blended together to become more than either genre alone. I will be writing a full review of this impressive book shortly. I feel the same way.

As usual, Betty Jane spins a page-turner. When I first heard what she'd chosen to write about, I wasn't sure I really wanted to read this book... but the story as she tells it is compelling. I'm even enjoying the way the two parts of the story - fiction and nonfiction - are woven together. Great interview; it answered a few of the questions I had while I was reading it (like where the cover photo came from!). Thanks! :) I’m halfway through reading my copy of The Boy and I can hardly put it down. As usual, Betty Jane spins a page-turner.
