Journal Response #8 – Brown Girl In the Ring

In my least favorite novel among the novels we’ve read in class. A lot of confusion going on within the setting of Toronto and how the citizens are portrayed as poor, dislocated, cut off from the norm and treated as nothing but street trash. Similar to the Prawns in Districts 9,  the people of abandoned Toronto really have no hope that the city will return to it’s former glory and luxurious form. Also, from what I can get from this title, the brown girl, being Ti-Jeanne, is possible the only solution or promise that the city has where most of the organizations that run this damage city is run by most of her family members. Sounds strange but also a weird reading to get into.
