advanced praise for Bottle Rocket Hearts
"A woeful and hilarious ode to the last days of a girl's childhood. Whittall has created characters who combine the lumimous joie-de-vivre of Oscar Wilde with the self-destructive fury of Johnny Rotten. A portrait of Montreal in the mid-nineties that successfully recreates its hedonistic, Salvation Army band, gender-bending glory." Heather O'Neill, author of Lullabies for Little Criminals, winner of CBC's Canada Reads 2007.
