Stuck (2013) by Stacey D. Atkinson is a coming-of-age story about Canadian Odette LeBlanc, a twenty-three-year-old living in a New Brunswick village, where she has been working the night shift at a convenience store since graduating from high school. She spends her days sleeping in the trailer she shares with her Bingo-addicted mother and her fifteen-year-old sister, and dreaming of a different life. Hers has become a predictable routine. It is filled with the directionless young people and struggling immigrants with whom she works at night. During the day, she is only rescued from her home life by her well-earned sleep.
Then she meets a summer visitor from a very different background, and gets a taste of a new kind of life. But gallivanting during the day instead of sleeping takes a toll. Odette faces an uncertain future, and must determine what is important in her life with little help from those around her.
