May 06th, 2021

Leslie Gentile of Brentwood Bay has published her debut kidlit novel Elvis, Me, and the Lemonade Stand Summer (Cormorant $13.95) for ages 9 – 12 about an Indigenous girl who learns the importance of being part of a supportive community. It’s the summer of 1978 and most people think Elvis Presley has been dead for a year — but not 11-year-old Truly, because she knows Elvis is alive and well and living at the Eagle Shores Trailer Park. Truly sets out to prove that her cool new neighbour is the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll while finding sanctuary with a Salish woman over her neglectful mother. 978-1-77086-615-7
