Cousins Jennifer and Jason live close together as small kids, exploring their rural home. But one act of family violence begets another, and the cousins drift apart. A series of conflicts result in accidental gunfire and scarring that takes many years to heal.

Cited as a Globe & Mail Top 5 First Fiction choice, Stolen also garnered Ms. Lapointe a Canadian Authors Association Emerging Writer award. Annette currently resides in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

This debut collection of short stories mines pop culture for existential tales.  Each of these mercurial stories is drenched in pop culture, the distancing effects of modern communication and the malaise of solitary existence.
