Set in Montreal, The Girl Who Was Saturday Night, is a funny and tender first-person tale told by Nouschka Tremblay, twin sister of Nicholas, daughter of Etienne, a once famous Quebecois entertainer and quasi-criminal. We first meet Nouschka at nineteen, as a beauty queen in a local celebration. The book is filled with crazy events, delightfully zany characters who all seem to dress outrageously. A wonderful story of what makes family, how they interact and try to figure out their lives. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight
