Well, here I am again loving a YA novel…a genre I say I don’t like. The difference between this one and so many others is that the author doesn’t pander to the reader. It is a full-on exploration of a few years in the life of an older teen, aka young adult, and the challenges she faces as she makes difficult (i.e. adult) decisions. Set in the UP of Michigan on land owned by the Anishinaabe tribes, the land and culture of the Ojibwe are the center of this fictional tale. I loved all the characters…every one of them. The storyline is compelling from beginning to end featuring mystery, crime, family drama, budding romance and coming of age. It is YA in its format with lots of “life lessons”, but not preachy in tone as much as instructive language. Learning the cultural teachings and the role of traditional medicine was a true bonus to the narrative. Some have considered the plot implausible, but if you consider this as a story and not a fictional memoir, it really works. Highly recommend. ( )

Thanks to BookishFirst for the Advanced Readers Copy.

This was a slow to start book but once a murder happens, the book takes off. Daunis is an 18 year old high school graduate who’s in the middle of dealing with her uncle’s death, her grandma’s stroke, and trying to figure out who she is. She witnesses her best friend’s murder and the story only starts there. Jamie is the new kid in town and instantly connects with Daunis and they form a friendship. The story progresses as kids die from meth overdoses and trying to figure out who’s behind the dealings. Daunis is pulled into the investigation in a way she didn’t quite foresee. This book is full with drama, high intensity scenes and a story that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Highly recommend this. I couldn’t put it down and didn’t want the story to end! ( )

Wow! I listened to the audio book which I highly recommend as it includes the correct pronunciation of Anishinaabemowin.

This story has so many facets--a strong female character, an Indigenous viewpoint, a mystery, coming of age story--that will appeal to many readers, and it hits on all targets. I could see this book being read in a high school classroom as well as for the simple pleasure of it. This is Angeline Boulley's debut novel and I look forward to reading more from her.

It could have been a bit shorter, I would have given it the full 4 stars then. ( )

I started off loving this book. The introduction into the Ojibwe world is beautiful, passionate, and informative. Daunis is a strong young woman who goes through tragedy after tragedy, but always remains dignified and determined. She is recruited by the FBI to work with Jamie and Ron to solve the mystery of ODs happening in her area. Her knowledge of westernized science and natural medicines makes her the perfect person to help the FBI. More and more is revealed about Daunis, her family, and her romance with Jamie as the book goes on. I was shocked when a horrible incident happens to her; it might be very triggering for those who has been through physical trauma. I didn't know if I could finish the book afterwards, but it really spoke to what occurs with Indigenous women and injustices that have happened in the past. ( )
