When I worked at Indigo I heard a lot about Heather O’Neill- a Canadian author who so many of my coworkers loved. Never having read any of her books, I came across Lullabies For Little Criminals at a thrift store and thought I would give it a try. I did not regret it. A beautifully written book on the life of a girl growing up in the streets of Montreal more or less on her own. Told through the innocent eyes of Baby, 12, who doesn’t know any other life so she doesn’t know to be sad about her. I highly recommend it.
