If You Liked Glass Beads by Dawn Dumont

Glass Beads by Dawn Dumont is the inaugural book for One eRead Canada, an initiative inviting readers across Canada to read the same book and join in a national conversation. The book is made up of twenty short stories that interconnect the friendships of four First Nations people against the cultural, political, and historical backdrop of the 1990s and early 2000s.

We’ve selected 15 “read-alikes”—titles similar in theme, subject and style to Glass Beads—featuring Canadian coming-of-age stories. Some are fiction, some memoir, something for everyone.
