Synopsis from Goodreads:
Set in the picturesque Acadian fishing village of Pointe-du-Chêne, New Brunswick (Canada), Stuck is an emotional journey about redefining what’s important in life and staying true to yourself.
Atkinson gives flashbacks into the main character’s past, allowing you to see how she came to be who she is today. It was so easy to get into as the main character appeared to be telling her story to the audience. You really feel for her. You get to know this community as a whole through their interactions with the main character. I appreciate how everyone was so down to earth and natural. I felt like I really was in a fishing village. I also love the dialogue in this novel. It’s so natural & flows the way real people talk. The mix of French and English, which is so common to the region in question, is easy to follow, even if you don’t speak French.
I loved this story. It was a remarkable portrayal of life in Acadia. I appreciated how this was a very Canadian novel without being only that. Above all, it was a story about surviving and being yourself. I’d definitely recommend picking up a copy.
