5.0 out of 5 stars A Girl Like Sugar Dec 16 2004
A Girl Like Sugar is amazing. I picked it up and read it in one sitting (coincidentally on a train, but that's another story). The guy next to me was surprised at how quickly i went through the book, but it's just that readable.
Chock-full of interesting, vibrant characters who are delicately drawn, A Girl Like Sugar, despite its almost over-the-top premise, is a book that any girl can relate to. Sugar's problems are our problems, expressed in a way we can never quite manage.
What stays with you is the vulnerability and power of self-expression, as demonstrated by Sugar. Light and amusing, the message you're left with isn't pure saccharine fluff.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sugar and the T.O. Fantasy... March 23 2005
I'm not exactly sure what all the hype is about Emily Pohl-Weary...
Although I do think that Sugar was fairly well written - the images of Toronto made me cringe. I think the stereotypes that are played up in T.O. rags like the NOW are really played out. Doms, lesbians, protestors,and 'artists' who listen to obscure bands - blech!! I almost feel as if the author was out to capture every hot topic this city is obsessed with. These aren't people in this story, just gross caracatures of Torontonians...
However, if this is the turn that Canadian fiction is taking...I guess we all have to get used to it!
