The Circle (2023)
Katherena Vermette
"A perfect companion to The Break and The Strangers, Katherena Vermette's The Circle draws us back into the lives of characters who we've come to know so intimately that their heartache is our heartache. With each new perspective as distinct and vivid as the last, The Circle acts as an unsettling reminder that the systems designed to help the most vulnerable too often end up betraying them. This is a stellar finale with an ending that will leave you both heartbroken and hopeful."
