Great list of Canlit @Jennifer_D!
I went back to look at the description of Tell -- Deafening is all about Grania. Grania's sister Tress is more the focus (although not really?) in Tell - it's actually about Kenan, Tress' husband when he returns from the war. I did the reverse here with reading Tell before Deafening! But I'm finding it's okay to have done that - Deafening is Grania's early life and into adulthood and her relationship with Tress and her family. I don't remember her factoring in a huge amount in Tell.
At any rate - very good - like I keep saying, Itani is the queen of quiet and lovely, and this is just anohter lovely, quiet and unassuming read. It was very nice to sit outside on the patio and read yesterday - it was such a gorgeous, breezy day out there! Funny that she mentions Saturday, July 1st and it being Dominion Day (now our Canada Day). I thought that made for excellent coicindental and perfectly timed reading!
