Half-Bads in White Regalia: A Memoir

"When Cody and his family move to Happyland (into what he calls the "half-bush," somewhere in between the bush and the suburbs), their house becomes a gathering place for friends, colourful characters, and not-quite-cousins, with Rock 95 blasting on the radio and fresh cases of Molson Canadian thumping onto the tempered-glass patio table. But when his parents careen into their inevitable divorce, Cody and his siblings are thrust into a period of neglect, scraping by on skimpy cupboard offerings and watching the house in Happyland fall apart around them. From there the family is caught between aspiring to be "good lifers" and navigating the "baddie" temptations all around them. There's Cody's mom, Mindimoo, who after discovering her Anishinaabe heritage and Sixties Scoop origin story embarks on a series of fraught relationships and fresh starts. There's his dad, O Touro, whose "big do, little think" attitude upends the lives of everyone around him. There's his fiercely protective older sister, Kristine, who'll do whatever it takes to keep Cody safe and fed, and his big brother, Julian, who facilitates his regular escapes into the world of video games. Capturing the chaos and wonder of childhood and garnished with a slang all its own, Half-Bads in White Regalia is a memoir that unspools a tangled family history with warmth, humour, and deep generosity."--… (mais)

DNF, so no rating.

I wanted to enjoy this book. After the atrocities that Canada has carried out with our indigenous population, I'd like to educate myself more on the topic.

Unfortunately, after giving this book the customary 10% to capture my attention and imagination, I found nothing captivating here, only quick and somewhat banal anecdotes. I'm sure it's likely a better book as it moves into the author's older years, but I just didn't want to wade through more stories of backyard beer drinking and being late for school.
