The WAR Series: Writers as Readers, with Suri Rosen

Kicked out of school, on the outs with her sister and sent to live with her strict aunt — so far, sixteen hasn't been a great year for Raina Resnick. But in her tight-knit Jewish community, Raina discovers she possesses an unexpected skill — matchmaking! Soon, Raina is anonymously playing cupid for lonely hearts to the point where she's barely able to stay awake through the days at her new school.

With the threat of a second expulsion and her identity being revealed, Raina races to find a new Mr. Right for her sister, who blames Raina for her broken engagement — all without letting anyone finding out that the hottest new matchmaker in town is a teenager.

The Proust Questionnaire, with Gina McMurchy-Barber

Adventurous young Peggy Henderson returns for a third time in Governor General's Literary Award nominee Gina McMurchy-Barber newest book, Bone Deep (Dundurn Press). For both new fans and readers familiar with Peggy, Bone Deep is a rollicking adventure, involving a 200-year old shipwreck, risking scuba diving exhibitions and (even scarier) a meddling great aunt dead set on making a lady out of Peggy.

Today Gina joins us to take on the Proust Questionnaire, where she tells us about the household chore she'd love to skip, a fantastic summer in Borneo and the personal habits of crows.
