Three out of four of Chrysler Wong's older siblings have died at age eighteen outside of their tiny rural Alberta hometown, perhaps according to the dictates of a family curse. At age eighteen, the family's wild child Trina leaves town without a trace, leaving her sister, wise and anxious Chrysler to pine and await her own death. At seventeen, Chrysler wants more than anything to see what's beyond town limits, find her sister, and experience love. She'd do it all, only she's afraid of almost everything.

Told in a voice that is wry and unforgettable, the Sweetest One is the heartbreaking story of a special family, their bond, and the devastation and changes left behind when family members die. It's about finding meaning and hope in the face of great tragedy.

Melanie Mah was born in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, and currently resides in Toronto. The Sweetest One is her first novel.


Owen Sound Sun Times on the Sweetest One: "It captivated me... Mah's writing never lets the reader down right to the last page."
