WHY WE NEED A RESILIENCE REBELLION . 14

Survivor memoirs have well-deserved spaces

on bestseller lists and feminists’ bookshelves.

Much of the appeal lies in their depictions

of resilience—the way women survive and

sometimes thrive in the aftermath. Julie Lalonde’s

memoir, Resilience Is Futile: The Life and Death

and Life of Julie S. Lalonde, challenges this notion.

OUT FROM THE MARGINS …………………..18

Muslim authors of young adult fiction are

creating stories about coming of age in Canada

for girls navigating both traditional and North

American expectations. Whether the heroine is

a burkini-wearing student, a superhero, or a Jane

Austen-esque young teacher, they are affirming the

voices and choices of a new generation.

dreams of tree-lined neighbourhoods.
