Summary, etc. note: With the goal of paying off her student debt, young Katie Beaton leaves her tight-knit seaside community in Cape Breton to take advantage of the Alberta oil rush. Katie encounters the harsh reality of life in the oil sands, where trauma is an everyday occurrence yet is never discussed. Beaton's natural cartooning prowess is on full display in this autobio-graphic novel about a country that prides itself on its egalitarian ethos and natural beauty while simultaneously exploiting both the riches of its land and the humanity of its people.
