I am happy to report that, even though I am only part way through Morgan-Cole’s Most Anything You Please, it is every bit as terrific as her previous books.
Reading Trudy’s work is an immersive experience. Whenever I get the opportunity to read her work, I look forward to sinking right into her story and making friends with her characters.
Trudy doesn’t create worlds, she creates neighbourhoods, and, then, she fills those neighbourhoods with people you know. You feel like these are characters from your own past, or perhaps people your parents have told you about.
They feel familiar, perhaps that even if you don’t exactly know them, you know people like them. They make sense and you care about them.
What more could you want out of a story?
