2013 Winner Leacock Medal Award for Canadian humour writing
Dance, Gladys Dance Review Excerpts
Globe and Mail May 22,2012 Candace Fertile
Creating utterly charismatic characters is Stocks’ greatest strength….The humour and zaniness of Dance, Gladys, Dance is counterpointed beautifully by the problems of the characters.
Connection – reaching out to others – is the ultimate value of this charming and thoughtful novel.
The Indextrious Reader June 27, 2012
…this book satisfies, and entertains, and provokes thought. A perfect book to sit down and discuss with other readers, with all its twists and turns and ideas. This is a fabulous debut — I will be looking out for further novels by Cassie Stocks!

This book is laugh out loud funny, deeply inspirational, and with characters’ quirkiness which will have you glued to the pages wondering what will happen next.
