Don’t Give a Shit

Hanna de Canesie

Mira’s mother is unemployed, and Mira’s stepfather is both unpredictable and violent. She never knows when he will show up or what mood he will be in. She wears worn sweaters and shoes with holes. Her cellphone is broken. When Carla offers her to sell pills, or as she puts it, “medicine, not drugs”, it is hard for Mira to resist. With a fast dialogue and a perfect tone, Hanna de Canesie’s novel is a depiction of class, gender, love, and what we are prepared to do for freedom.
