The Agony of Bun O‘Keefe by Heather Smith I‘m not sure how to describe this one, it‘s Can Lit YA about a 14 yr old on the spectrum who lives with her neglectful, hoarder mother. Bun leaves home and is ‘adopted‘ by some marginalized young adults. It‘s quite a beautiful coming of age story about finding your place and your people

Reco‘d by my independent #localbookstore 📖

Bun is a 14yr old forced out of her home by her abusive hoarder mother. Educated on the books and movies piled in their house, Bun doesn‘t really understand people and this gets her into some bizarre situations. She‘s eventually taken in by a group of misfits who are determined to support her and love one another despite their meager circumstances.

Excellent YA, absolutely loved it!

There's a lot to unpack in this book! Bun O'Keefe is a quirky, lovable character whose family fell apart. Luckily for her, she soon found a new family that came to love her for who she was. For such a young person, she dealt with a lot. Her stories, and the stories of those around her, were truly awful to read about, let alone experience. Yet she came out on top and was able to find her silver lining, of sorts, despite all the awfulness. 3/5⭐️

I am in a book nerd nirvana fog with The Agony of Bun O‘Keefe. Ohhh, how I loved this book. *cue gushing*

This small book packs quite a punch. Smith‘s writing quickly engrosses you in 14-year-old Bun‘s life as she struggles to find her way. Many issues addressed with a wonderful secondary cast of characters.
Set in St John‘s, Nfld this is a lovely bit of CanLit.

It's a short Cybils read! So many people raved about it to me so now I'm super curious.

This simultaneously broke my heart & filled my heart with joy. The characters were hands down the best part. Bun was a precious cinnamon roll. Busker Boy was the sweetest. The way he took care of Bun was so heartwarming. Chef, Big Eyes, and Chris/Cher complete their family of misfits and I loved them. They had their own issues but came together to help Bun. I loved the 80's pop culture references. Overall, this book was insanely good!
