Books similar to Smog City by Rebecca McNutt

Smog City is a Canadian novel written in 2011 and published in 2015. It tells the story of a misfit but nonetheless average girl who has a friendship with the personification of a hazardous waste site in Sydney, an industrial steeltown of Atlantic Canada, from the 1980's to 2013.
